April 2019: Julian Assange being dragged out of the Ecuadorian embassy in London and arrested.
In January 2019, while Julian Assange was still under siege in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, OpEdNews published a report, titled: "Julian Assange, Lord Carlile of Berriew, and the UK justice system".

BBC report of Assange's arrest three months later, in April 2019, explicitly states: [ii]
