London, Dec 17 (ANI): WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who was released on bail yesterday after nine days in solitary confinement in London for sexually abusing two women in Sweden, has said that his stay in jail has made him more angry and determined to continue his secret-spilling work.

"It has not altered my position, in fact it has confirmed my position to me personally that we are on the right path. It has given me enough anger about the situation to last me 100 years," quoted Assange, as saying.

His comments came just minutes before entering the Ellingham Hall, his place of "mansion arrest" in the British countryside, after being granted conditional bail at the High Court in London on Thursday.

Assange, who is fighting deportation to Sweden for sexual assault charges, said of the British justice system: "If justice is not always an outcome, it is at least not dead yet. I hope to continue my work and continue to protest my innocence in this matter."

Meanwhile has also said that he is preparing for indictment on US espionage charges.

The Australian was initially granted bail on Tuesday but his legal team had to successfully negotiate an appeal launched by Gemma Lindfield, who is acting on behalf of Swedish prosecutors. (ANI)
