People have died because of their affiliation with secrets website WikiLeaks, according to founder Julian Assange.
In a little-noticed interview with BBC’s John Humphrys, Assange claimed that WikiLeaks is not just facing financial and legal attacks. People associated with the website have actually been assassinated, he said.
Unfortunately, the interviewer did not follow-up and Assange did not provide any evidence.
Assange made the startling claim while Humphrys was questioning him about returning to Sweden to face sexual assault accusations.
