The Julian Assange Show: Moncef Marzouki *ARCHIVE* *PARTNER CONTENT*

United Kingdom, London
May 20, 2019 at 15:34 GMT +00:00 · Published

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who is currently serving a 50-week sentence in London's Belmarsh prison, interviewed the then Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki for his third episode of 'The Julian Assange Show' in 2012. The twelve-episode series originally aired on RT from April to July 2012.

Marzouki served as the Tunisian president from 2011 till 2014, but is also known as a human rights activist and a doctor. Together with Assange he goes on to discuss the Arab Spring, human rights violations in Tunisia and “the West’s double standards on the issue”.

In his show, Assange interviewed "iconoclasts, visionaries and power insiders." Speaking at the time of the filming of his show, Assange said that the mainstream media is labelling him as an "enemy combatant, a traitor, who interviews terrible radicals from around the world."

The Ecuadorian Embassy in London was the home of Assange for almost seven years, after he entered the property on 19 June 2012 claiming diplomatic asylum.

He was arrested by British police on 11 April 2019 after Ecuador officially revoked his asylum status and allowed UK police to escort him from the embassy and into custody.

A British court sentenced Assange to 50 weeks in prison on May 1 for jumping bail when he took refuge in the embassy in 2012.
