British police are reviewing a policy to maintain a 24-hour watch on Julian Assange, more than 2 years after the WikiLeaks founder fled into the Ecuadorean Embassy in London to avoid extradition for a sexual assault case in Sweden.
Metropolitan Police Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe said in a radio interview that the constant surveillance of Assange was “sucking our resources,” the Associated Press reports.
Posting police outside of the embassy had cost upwards of $15 million a year, according to official estimates released last week.
