Is Julian Assange About To Be Abandoned By Ecuador?

According to Glenn Greenwald, writing in today’s Intercept, Ecuador’s president Lenin Moreno is to meet this weekend with British officials to formalise his country’s withdrawal of political asylum from Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks and a player in the Mueller investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election.

Julian Assange – about to be ejected from Ecuadorian embassy?

According to the Intercept, Moreno, who is confined to a wheelchair, is using an international conference on disability in London as a cover for his meeting with British officials which would see Assange ejected from the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he has been given shelter since 2012, and handed over to the Metropolitan police.

A move like this could eventually see Assange extradited to the United States where he could face charges, and a lengthy prison term, for publishing secret US documents, including thousands of State Department cables.

According to Greenwald: ‘A source close to the Ecuadorian Foreign Ministry and the President’s office, unauthorized to speak publicly, has confirmed to the Intercept that Moreno is close to finalizing, if he has not already finalized, an agreement to hand over Assange to the UK within the next several weeks. The withdrawal of asylum and physical ejection of Assange could come as early as this week.’

  1. How is it ‘secret meetings’ when you are broadcasting it !? Come on Ecuador …. times up !! Out out and face it Assange

    • You are obviously a supporter of government secrets. You’ll be pleased with this news then…? and you are obviously right, government knows what is good for us and we have no right to know what they are doing…..and people who insist otherwise and especially those who do something about it should go to jail for a long time.

  2. UK government should welcome Assange, and provide him with secure accommodation to then use his unique ‘whistleblowing’ ability to expose Trumps incompetence and expose him as a Russian spy!
