JULIAN ASSANGE'S PLANE LEAVES BANGKOK FOR US-CONTROLLED PACIFIC ISLAND

Julian Assange's flight from Bangkok to a US-controlled Pacific Island has taken off - as the WikiLeaks founder prepares to plead guilty to a single spy charge in return for his freedom after 14 years.

Assange, 52, was released from Belmarsh Prison in London on Monday after reaching a plea deal with the US authorities.

The Wikileaks founder arrived in the Thai capital early Tuesday where he departed the plane and was driven away.  

He was driven to Stansted Airport yesterday, where he boarded a private jet that 'left the jurisdiction of England and Wales at 6.36pm' and landed in Bangkok, Thailand, on Tuesday morning. 

His flight, under the call sign, VJT199 left Bangkok around 9:20pm local time, bound for Saipan, part of the US-controlled Northern Mariana Islands in the south Pacific. 

His wife, Stella Assange, asked supporters to follow along with Assange's flight on 'in case something goes wrong.'
