AFP , Sunday 19 Aug 2012

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange called on US President Barack Obama to stop its "witchhunt" against his whistleblowing website, as he gave a speech from Ecuador's embassy in London on Sunday.

"I ask President Obama to do the right thing, the United States must renounce its witchhunt against WikiLeaks," said Assange, making his first public statement since he was granted political asylum by Ecuador.
