Exposing dark deeds of big fishes, that's what all it took for Julian Assange to face charges of espionage which will potentially lock him for 175 years.

Jullian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks, has been fighting with his life in a high security prison in London.WikiLeaks dumped millions of documents which shook the world. Including politician's black wealth , election frauds to dark deeds of the nations, Julian Assange has been one of the man behind it all.

The case of espionage follows, WikiLeak's document leaks of 2010-11 Iraq and Afghanistan wars. For which he has been alleged of plotting to computers  for obtaining and disclosing national defense information.Prosecutors say Assange helped US defence analyst Chelsea Manning breach the Espionage Act in unlawfully.

Assange however has denied of plotting the hack, since the very begining and he has been firm on that. There is neither any evidence to prove that every one's safety was put in risk.

He is set to appear at the Old Bailey on Monday, where District Judge Vanessa Baraitser will deliver her judgment on whether he should be extradited to face the charges in the US.

Assange's lawers say, if he is extradited to face charges in US, he has a potential of 175 years in jail.

A lot of people are protesting the allegations as an act against freedom of speech and freedom of press.

Kristinn Hrafnsson, WikiLeaks editor-in-chief, said: “The mere fact that this case has made it to court let alone gone on this long is an historic, large-scale attack on freedom of speech."

“The US Government should listen to the groundswell of support coming from the mainstream media editorials, NGOs around the world such as Amnesty and Reporters Without Borders and the United Nations who are all calling for these charges to be dropped."
