The plane carrying Julian Assange departs London, and he will appear in court on Wednesday.

More than ten years have passed since Assange was taken into custody or holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

The main whistleblower behind the WikiLeaks affair that revealed government secrets to the globe, Julian Assange, has landed in Bangkok to refuel before continuing on to the US territory in the Northern Mariana Islands.

The plane carrying Julian Assange departs London, and he will appear in court on Wednesday.

Assange was transported from London by a charter airplane, and it is said that he landed at Bangkok’s Don Mueang airport at 2:30 pm.

“The plane is expected to refuel and resupply with water before departing at 9:00pm for Saipan island,” a senior Thai official said, confirming the story.

Having been charged with sexual assault that was later dropped, Assange has spent more than ten years in prison or holed up in the Ecuadorean embassy in London to avoid being extradited to Sweden.

This week, the Australian editor is scheduled to enter a guilty plea to breaking US espionage legislation. He will then be sentenced to 62 months of community service and deported back to Australia.

Around 700,000 secret papers pertaining to US military and diplomatic operations in Iraq and Afghanistan were allegedly leaked by Assange beginning in 2010.

After receiving bail, he was flown from Belmarsh jail to Stansted airport, northeast of London, according to WikiLeaks.

A protracted battle between the US and Britain to extradite Assange so he could be charged under the 1917 Espionage Act has come to an end with the plea agreement.

The transaction was not wholly unanticipated. There was mounting pressure on US President Joe Biden to abandon the protracted legal action against Assange.
