Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has been sentenced to nearly a year’s imprisonment for violating the terms of his bail, seven years ago. A court in London ruled on Wednesday.
Assange will sit in prison for fifty weeks, nearly a year, the London court announced on Wednesday its decision on the case, which is about seven years back in time.
The judge in the case, Deborah Taylor, said in a statement that she had difficulty seeing a more serious form of violation of just the terms of the bail than that of Assange.
According to the court, Julian Assange’s seven years in the embassy cost British taxpayers about £ 16 million.
