Julian Assange is considered by many as one of the most high-profile crusaders for the freedom of information. The soap that is the life of this computer hacker slash freedom fighter has taken some breath-taking and eyebrow-raising twists and turns since his whistleblowers' platform WikiLeaks released thousands of diplomatic cables of the US state department in November 2010. Not only did Assange unleash the fury of the US government that seem to want his head on a plate, he is also wanted in Sweden. The Nordic nation has issued an European Arrest Warrant, around the same time when the diplomatic cables where released, for Assange to answer questions concerning two separate cases of sexual assault. While fighting the courts in the UK to prevent extradition to Sweden he has fled into the Embassy of Ecuador, sought and was granted asylum and remains within the embassy to avoid arrest.
