Inside The WikiLeaks Scandal: Who Is Julian Assange?

Julian was arrested on sex charges stemming from a Swedish investigation. But his Wikileaks site made him the focus of world governments with its recent publication of documents detailing spying and questionable activity by many countries.

"Well, it's finally happened. Let us do our best to ensure my father is treated fairly and apolitically," Daniel Tweeted after his father's arrest.

He also said: "I'm hoping this isn't just an intermediary step towards his extradition to the US."

"I can't see how they can possibly convict him of anything in a fair trial.

"I haven't been in contact with him in the past few years."

He also makes the point that if his father is facing action over the leaked documents, "then every single news outlet that has republished the cables or derivatives thereof is equally culpable."
