News

"A UN panel will conclude Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is being "arbitrarily detained" in the UK, the Swedish foreign ministry has said." (BBC News)

Frédéric Mégret, Associate Professor and Canada Research Chair in the Law of Human Rights and Legal Pluralism, McGill University

"It may seem strange that Julian Assange, who fled voluntarily in the Embassy of Ecuador to escape a warrant for arrest of Sweden , is considered 'arbitrarily detained' according to the United Nations. Yet, that is what a UN panel has just concluded."
—Frédéric Mégret
