Assange decisive to continue disclosures

LONDON. December 17. KAZINFORM WikiLeaks' founder Julian Assange, who was released on bail on Thursday after spending nine days in a London jail over alleged sex crimes in Sweden, said solitary confinement did not alter his position and gave him "enough anger for a hundred years" to continue disclosures on his website; Kazinform refers to ITAR-TASS.

"Clearing my name is not the highest work I have. Continuing my work is the highest work I have," he told Sky News.

Assange, who has angered the U.S. authorities through the release of secret diplomatic cables, said he is also expecting charges in the United States.

"We have heard today from one of my US lawyers that there may be a US indictment for espionage for me coming from a secret grand jury investigation," he said adding the American legal action "had yet to be confirmed" but was "extremely serious"; Kazinform cites ITAR-TASS.
