      Julian Assange in 2011
      As we approach another hearing over extradition this Wednesday, I want to keep this timeline (see article more more in-depth commentary…

      These are the key dates:

      • August 2010 – The Swedish Prosecutor’s Office first issues an arrest warrant for Mr Assange. It says there are two separate allegations – one of rape and one of molestation. Mr Assange says the claims are “without basis”
      • December 2010 – Mr Assange is arrested in London and bailed at the second attempt
      • May 2012 – The UK’s Supreme Court rules he should be extradited to Sweden to face questioning over the allegations
      • June 2012 – Mr Assange enters the Ecuadorean embassy in London
      • August 2012 – Ecuador grants asylum to Mr Assange, saying there are fears his human rights might be violated if he is extradited
      • August 2015 – Swedish prosecutors drop their investigation into two allegations – one of sexual molestation and one of unlawful coercion because they have run out of time to question him. But he still faces the more serious accusation of rape
      • October 2015 – Metropolitan Police announces that officers will no longer be stationed outside the Ecuadorean embassy
      • February 2016 – A UN panel rules that Mr Assange has been “arbitrarily detained” by UK and Swedish authorities since 2010
      • May 2017 – Sweden’s director of public prosecutions announces that the rape investigation into Mr Assange is being dropped
      • July 2018 – The UK and Ecuador confirm they are holding ongoing talks over the fate of Mr Assange
      • October 2018 – Mr Assange is given a set of house rules by the Ecuadorean embassy
      • October 2018 – It’s revealed he is to launch legal action against the government of Ecuador – accusing it of violating his “fundamental rights and freedoms”
      • December 2018 – Mr Assange’s lawyer rejects an agreement announced by Ecuador’s president to see him leave the Ecuadorean embassy
      • February 2019 – Australia grants Mr Assange a new passport amid fears Ecuador may bring his asylum to an end
      • April 2019 – The Metropolitan Police detain him for “failing to surrender to the court” over a warrant issued in 2012
      • May 2019- Sweden reopens sexual assault investigation and US files 17 new charges against Mr Assange

      Hell, no... I'm not giving up...
