(ANSA) - BUENOS AIRES, NOVEMBER 29 - The president-elect of Brazil, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva met yesterday with the editor-in-chief of the WikiLeaks platform, Kristinn Hrafnsson, asking that Julian Assange "be released from his unjust imprisonment.


    Via Twitter Lula, who will take office at the presidency of Brazil on January 1, announced that he had met with "Hrafnsson, and with the journalist Joseph Farrell, who informed me about the health situation and Julian Assange's fight for freedom".


    "I asked them - he underlined - to send (to Assange) my solidarity". I hope, he concluded, that "Assange is freed from his unjust imprisonment".


    Lula's stance comes the day after the circulation by five newspapers (New York Times, Guardian, Le Monde, Der Spiegel and El Pais) of an open letter asking the United States to drop the charges against Assange in the name of freedom of the press.
