    WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange arrested.

    For a man that exposed corrupution the PTB don;t like that ..

    Came after Ecuador withdrew asylum Thursday, London police took Assange, 47, into custody for “failing to surrender to the court” in 2012. The Australian first sought asylum to avoid extradition to Sweden on sexual assault allegations. That case has since been dropped, but Assange faces possible extradition to the U.S. regarding the publication of classified military information. He has denied wrongdoing.

    Will Australia get involved to protect a citizen?

    The European Union offered the UK a six-month Brexit extension during an emergency summit Wednesday.

    In return, the UK must hold European elections in May or leave the European Union on June 1. The extension means the country won’t be forced to leave the EU Friday which was the previous deadline without a deal and instead has until Oct. 31.

    UK Prime Minister Theresa May said the country will try to exit as soon as possible. UK Parliament earlier rejected May’s Brexit deal and is struggling to reach an agreement on the withdrawal and future relations with EU countries.

    Wikileaks has announced Assange charged with conspiracy with Chelsea Manning in 2010 to release classified information about the Iraq War, under the US Espionage Act
