WikiLeaks Founder Leads Online Poll for Time’s ‘Person of the Year’


wikileaks-assangeEmbattled WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange leads an online people’s choice as Time magazine’s ‘Person of the Year’ with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and a pop singer well behind him.

The ‘Person of the Year’ will be selected by Time’s editors next Wednesday; and the issue with the winner on the cover will appear in the last week of December.

Lawyers of the founder of WikiLeaks website, Julian Assange (39), said they will fight his extradition to Sweden, arguing that the case against him was politically motivated. Indeed, in what could be a dramatic, full court hearing on Tuesday next, Geoffrey Robertson, a high profile human rights lawyer is expected to defend Assange.
