    Julian Assange released from prison

    It is anticipated the WikiLeaks founder will plead guilty to violating US espionage law and will be allowed to return to Australia, court documents say

    Seems he might be released - Manning got 35 years.

    Credit for 5 years in Belmarsh, but no credit for the 7 years in the Ecuadorian embassy.

    Assange is due to be sentenced at a hearing on the island of Saipan at 9am local time on Wednesday (2300 GMT on Tuesday). Under the deal, which must be approved by a judge, he is likely to be credited for the five years he has already served and face no new jail time.

    Not with a bang but a whimper.

    Bet they served him more than water and bread in Belmarsh.

    Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has walked free from a US court after pleading guilty in a deal to end a years-long legal battle.

    He faces no further prison time and is due to fly home to Australia, following the hearing held in the Northern Mariana Islands, a US territory.

    Great news, I'm so happy for Julian that this mess has finally been resolved. Also that Defat and Kevin Rudd, helped making this outcome thanks to their work in the background.

    Manning has been out for seven years already.
