We can state that there is a risk that he will be persecuted politically...

We trust the UK will offer the necessary guarantees so that both governments can act adequately and properly respect international rights and the right of asylum.

We also trust the excellent relationship the two countries have will continue.

“Ecuador wanted to have an interview with Sweden because we didnt want to intervene with what was happening there, but they refused our request. They wanted guarantees that Assange would not be extradited to the US, but they refused to give us guarantees”


I am glad that Ecuador has made the morally correct decision. I will post the updates as they come in.

Just watching it now on BBC News, they are talking about the possibility of breaking into the embassy to arrest him, which would open up a whole messy situation for embassys all over the world.

I would like to know where the woman who got assulted/raped is in all this....
