Julian the Asylum Seeker by Francis Fitzgibbon QC

The news that Ecuador has granted political asylum to Julian Assange has been taking up a lot of airwaves and bandwidth since it was announced after 1pm today. A lot of questions are being raised as a result, and a lot is being written on the topic. Francis Fitzgibbon QC has written an excellent post on the law behind Assange’s application for asylum. Although this post is dated from June 2012, it is a good clear explanation of how we got to this point.
