Sunning Assange

Section:

Does a fugitive have the right to sun?

 

Ecuador’s foreign minister Richard Patino has called for his country’s enforced guest, Julian Assange, to be allowed the right to sunbathe and have a bit of “intimacy”. Instead, he would do well to do the decent thing by telling him to hand himself in.

 

Masks with the face of Wikileaks' founder Julian Assange were distributed by two Brazilian journalists at Ipanema Beach in Rio de Janeiro in December 2010... In June 2013, the Brazilian foreign minister claimed the fugitive had a "right to sunbathe"

Mr Patino, who will have been in the Ecuadorean embassy in London for exactly one year on 19th June 2013, told the Evening Standard:

 

“We believe he has a fundamental right to sunbathe. His right to intimacy, mobility, a normal life and health is being restricted”.

 

“I will be asking the British government to allow Mr Assange to sunbathe and enjoy the warm weather and sunshine because unfortunately, at this moment in time, he hasn’t been able to do so for a year”.

 

Patino has a point however. If Assange won’t go to Sweden, can’t someone just put him on a boat to the sunnier climes of Australia?
