Wikileaks founder Julian Assange will leave the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he took refuge in June 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden, on Friday and accept arrest if a UN panel investigating his case rules against him, he said in a statement on Thursday posted on the Wikileaks Twitter account.

Assange took refuge in the embassy building in June 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he is wanted for questioning over allegations of sexual assault and rape against two women in 2010. The Australian denies the accusations.
