Journalists willing participants in Ecuador’s attempt at Assange character assassination

Journalists willing participants in Ecuador’s attempt at Assange character assassination”

In a third letter dated 3 April 2019, the British embassy in Quito assures the country's foreign ministry in Spanish that Assange can not be subjected to "inhuman or degrading punishment", according the 1998 Human Rights Act under article three of the European convention on human rights, to which the United Kingdom adheres. Correa had granted Assange asylum in 2012.

Security footage has surfaced from inside the Ecuadorian embassy Julian Assange spent seven years, showing the Wikileaks founder skateboarding through a room in bare feet.

"The key issue at the moment is USA extradition, which we have warned about for many years", she added.

"The European Union must take action to protect a politically-persecuted publisher and journalist", said the German politician, calling on Spain and her home country to grant Assange asylum. He also kicked a ball around the embassy's corridors to entertain himself, the newspaper reported.

I was a bit surprised when I was in free air - not surprised but I was struggling a bit to put the laps together. Hamilton agreed with Bottas that the start made all the difference in the result.

The kitty companion, who came to live with the WikiLeaks founder in 2016 amid his almost seven-year stay, was often photographed perched in the embassy window wearing a tie.

Assange has had "a very hard time" since Moreno took office in Ecuador in 2017, Robinson said.

That stint ended on Thursday when Ecuador revoked his asylum and he was arrested by British police.

He was arrested at the embassy on Thursday after Ecuador revoked his asylum, and is now also fighting a U.S. extradition warrant relating to the release by WikiLeaks of a huge cache of official documents.

The WikiLeaks founder is in custody in London awaiting sentencing for breaching his British bail conditions in 2012 by seeking refuge in the Ecuadoran embassy to avoid extradition to Sweden.

The letters, which are virtually identical, read: "You have expressed concern that, should Julian Assange be extradited from the United Kingdom, there would be a risk that he could be subject to the death penalty". Assange is being held at Belmarsh Prison in London and is now expected to fight extradition to the USA over an allegation that he conspired with former army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to break into a classified government computer.

Assange's lawyer, Jennifer Robinson, said her client would cooperate with Swedish authorities if they reopen the rape case against him but would continue to resist any bid to extradite him to the US.
