WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, arrested in London Thursday after Quito withdrew his political asylum, will not be extradited to any country where he could face “torture or the death penalty,” Ecuador’s president said.
He worked with APJ Abdul Kalam for nearly eight years. Asked how Kalam was before he became President of the nation, Balasubramanian said, “He was a very straightforward person. He always pushed for making things in India. He preferred indigenous production and wanted India to be self-reliant.”
