Persecution by US must end: Assange to Obama

Sep 27, 2012 09:47 AM IST India India

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange appealed to the US to stop persecuting him and his website for releasing classified US files.

Assange has been holed up in Ecaudor since mid-June to avoid extradition to Sweden.

Assange made a personal appeal to US President Barack Obama. "It is time for President Obama to do the right thing and join the forces of change - not in fine words, but in fine deeds."
