Wikileaks released the tweet about his sentencing, though Assange’s Australian lawyers are yet to confirm details.
His sentencing was initially set for May 22, when he first fronted court last month.
Though it’s believed it might be rushed through now, before he’s due in court again tomorrow over the US attempt to extradite him.
