41-year old Australian Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks had made many important persons and agencies uncomfortable through his innumerable disclosures and has now been granted asylum in Ecuador.

He was wanted in Sweden for questioning over sex crimes and the Swedish authorities were trying to extradite him.

However, he apparently has the backing of South American nations.

It seems Assange is presently staying in a small room within the embassy, which is situated in London's upmarket neighborhood of Knightsbridge near the Harrods department store. He has been at this address for the past two months.

This has been reported in of dated 20th of August 2012.

Julian Assange has requested US President Barack Obama to end the US ‘witch hunt’' against Wikileaks, his whistleblowing website.

He made his appearance on the balcony of the embassy and gave his speech to his 100 odd supporters also from there.
