Ecuador wants Julian Assange out of London embassy

12 January 2018

The UK did not grant that request, nor are we in talks with Ecuador on this matter.

The Ecuadorian initiative was meant to confer legal immunity on Assange, allowing him to slip out of the embassy and Britain without being arrested for breaching his former bail conditions.

He had been wanted on assault claims in Sweden, which have been dropped, but now fears extradition to the US.

In New York, Patricia would work with newly hired GM Dave Gettleman, who most recently helped revive the Carolina Panthers. If the Giants elect to hire Patricia , they will need to have a plan in place for offensive coordinator.

Assange has been living in the Ecuador embassy since 2012, after he was accused of many charges during his stint at WikiLeaks, which include purportedly leaking several classified documents.

But he can only leave the embassy by submitting himself to the judiciary, the British news agency PA quoted a Foreign Office spokesman as saying. The passport was reportedly granted to him on December 12. While Swedish prosecutors dropped extradition requests related to sex crime allegations in May 2017, Assange fears that if British police detain him, United States prosecutors will immediately issue an extradition request over Wikileaks' decision to publish troves of secret U.S. military documents. You also can't blame the man for trying to get out in a way that would make it harder for him to be extradited to the United States of America, particularly after US Attorney General Jeff Sessions said his arrest was "a priority" last April. If he was granted diplomatic immunity with the help of this document, Tatchell said, he would be free to leave and travel to Ecuador without arrest.

Assange's life could be under threat from other states, she warned, adding that she was seeking a "dignified and just" solution to his situation with Britain.

In a picture posted Wednesday on his personal Twitter account, Assange appears wearing a jersey from Ecuador's national football team. Instead, the government released a statement today that did not mention that passport, but said that Ecuador has been complying with global laws while also protecting human rights, and has been seeking alternatives to Assange's situation. The Ecuadorian government has granted him political asylum. The entry shows that the country issued the passport on December 21st, nearly three weeks ago - and more than two weeks before Espinosa asked for assistance in getting Assange out of their embassy.

In addition to the aforementioned crimes, Assange was also charged and tried for the rape of two Swedish women. It would have enabled him to walk out of the embassy without fear of arrest. Assange's legal team has called on United Kingdom and Swedish authorities to end his "deprivation of liberty, respect his physical integrity and freedom of movement, and afford him the right to compensation".

This sparks speculation that Assange is about to end his self-imposed exile.
