(FILES)- A March 23, 2015 file photo shows WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange seen on a screen speaking via web cast from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London during an event on the sideline of the United Nations (UN) Human Rights Council session in Geneva. Assange took refuge in June 2012 in the Ecuadorian Embassy to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he faces allegations of rape and sexual molestation, which he strongly denies. The French government rejected an aslyum request from Wikileaks’ Julian Assange on July 3, 2015, saying he did not face “immediate danger”. AFP PHOTO / FABRICE COFFRINI
