By Jerry Smith Feb 1 2011

Assange is asking the Australian Government to ensure his safe return to Melbourne as his extradition hearing Monday in London on sexual misconduct charges in Sweden approaches.

"He wants to return to Australia, he wants to return safely here, knowing he'll have the support of the government. He insists that the government intervene to protect him. Of course we have witnessed the government not protecting him but rather taking a hostile attitude to him without any foundation," defense attorney Rob Stary, a member of Assange's Melbourne legal team, said.

Julian Assange on 60 Minutes : Video

By Jerry Smith Jan 31 2011

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange appeared on 60 Minutes last night. Steve Kroft spent two days with Assange at the estate of friend Vaughan Smith, where under the conditions of his bail, Assange must stay while he is under house arrest.

"Our founding values are those of the U.S. revolution. They are those of people like Jefferson and Madison. If you're a whistle-blower, and you have material that is important, we will accept it, we will defend you, and we will publish it. You can't turn away material simply because it comes from the United States," Assange said during the interview.
