British human rights lawyer Geoffrey Robertson, who formerly represented Julian Assange, says the Wikileaks founder has made many enemies, including the governments of Ecuador, Australia, the U.K. and U.S.
“At the end of the day, you come down to the question of free speech, whether it’s right that a publisher who has received information from sources who want it published … should be jailed and punished for the efforts he’s made on behalf of free speech,” says Robertson.
