WikiLeaks Replaces Julian Assange With Kristinn Hrafnsson as Editor-in-Chief

WikiLeaks on Wednesday replaced Julian Assange as editor-in-chief with onetime spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson.

The ramifications of the move are unclear.

“I condemn the treatment of Julian Assange that leads to my new role,” Hrafnsson said, as The Daily Dot reported, “but I welcome the opportunity to secure the continuation of the important work based on WikiLeaks ideals.”

The organization was founded and has been led for more than a decade by Assange, but the silver-haired Australian has been isolated in legal limbo at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London since 2012.

WikiLeaks tweeted that Assange will stay on as the group’s publisher.

Assange had his communications cut in March by Ecuador’s new president, Lenín Moreno, and Wednesday’s statement said the 47-year-old ex-hacker remained “incommunicado.”
