The whistleblower website ‘Wikileaks’ has released a video claiming that the British government has mounted CCTV cameras to spy on Julian Assange’s East Anglia apartment where he has been kept under ‘house arrest’ since the last six months.

In the five-minute video, titled “House Arrest”, Assange’s supporters have claimed that three cameras have been placed to watch who enters and leaves his temporary home, The Telegraph reports. It has also shown one of the cameras mounted outside the entrance to Ellingham Hall, Norfolk.

“This is one of the three cameras that is outside each entrance of the property. We suddenly noticed them appearing since we have been here. We believe they are monitoring everything that goes in and out of the property,” Sarah Harrison, one of the WikiLeaks' team, claimed in the video.

The video further claimed that all the cameras have been installed since Assange moved there in mid-December.
