Julian Assange: "I can confirm I am leaving the embassy soon."; He may have health problems.

In a press conference, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has confirmed he will “soon” be leaving the Ecuadorean embassy in London.

Rumors are circulating that he has health problems, including an irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure and a chronic cough.

He responded to the rumors in the conference:
In relation to my health, as you can imagine, being detained in various ways in this country without charge for four years, and in this embassy for two years, has [had an impact] . . . there is no outside area and therefore, no sunlight...n environment in which any healthy person would find themselves with certain difficulties to have to manage.
“Over the coming weeks I will be looking to try and set up a meeting with the UK foreign secretary,” he said.

“We will be continuing our work to find a friendly and diplomatic solution with governments involved and the international community and international bodies.”
