One of the biggest government auditors, whether you agree with him or not has finally left the Ecuadorian embassy in London.
He will definitely be staying at her majesty's pleasure for at least six months for jumping bail. The big question is will he then be extradited to the US to face charges?

In your opinion, what charges should Julian Assange face and why? Has the political climate changed in the United States since Julian Assange fled and sought refuge in the embassy? Do you on a personal level agree with or disagree with Julian Assange?

Is there anything in English law that would require his presence for the full six months? If the United States government requested Julian Assange's extradition back to the United States, could or should England honor it upon the request?

I would have to presume that this could be classed as a test case to create law for his bail sentencing. Assange could agree to be extradited so his prison stay in the U.S. would count be deducted when he is sentenced.
also the court case could be held in the U.K. if similar U.K. laws exist, though the U.S. legislators don't like the shorter sentences that are given in all other countries.
