LONDON, August 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Wikileaks founder Julian Assange may be considering leaving the Ecuadorian embassy in London and handing himself in to police, Britain's Sky News reported on Monday.
The television and multimedia news agency said Assange was expected to hold a news conference later Monday, where he would outline his plans, with the suggestion that the WikiLeaks chief needed hospital treatment for heart and lung problems.
The 43-year-old is believed to have developed a heart condition and a chronic lung condition as a result of spending two years in the embassy, Sky News said.
Assange was given shelter at the Ecuadorian embassy in June 2012 after a British court ruled to extradite him to Sweden over alleged sex crimes. The Australian said he considered Sweden's accusations a pretext to eventually send him to the United States, which is seeking to get hold of Assange for leaking military and diplomatic documents in 2010.
It is expected that Assange would be arrested by the British police if he left the grounds of the embassy regardless of any medical condition.
