Lawcast 209:  Francis FitzGibbon QC on the Assange asylum bid

Julian Assange walked into the  Ecuador Embassy in London on Tuesday evening to claim political asylum.  The President of Ecuador is shortly to make a statement on Assange’s application.  Today I am talking to Francis FitzGibbon QC about the law relating to asylum and the legal consequences of Assange’s extraordinary decision to seek asylum – a decision which surprised several of his supporters who put up the bail money and which they are possibly in danger of forfeiting.
