A Metropolitan police officer was snapped by the reporters when holding the clipboard saying Assange’s name.
The clipboard held by a uniformed officer last week outside the Ecuadorian embassy featured a sheet of paper titled “Restricted” and saying “EQ Embassy brief – Summary of current position re. Assange. Action required – Assange to be arrested under all circumstances”.
Further, the paper detailed all ways that Julian Assange could exit the building of the embassy, including in a diplomatic bag or car. The document also warned of the possibilities of “distraction” – for instance, the supporters of Assange could arrange a riot outside the embassy.
In response, representatives of the Metropolitan Police claimed in the interview that the document in question wasn’t related to the Julian Assange case, although everyone would be surprised if there were any other fugitives from justice hiding in the embassy named Assange.
In August, Ecuador has officially offered Julian Assange asylum in the country, but the United Kingdom said they wouldn’t let Assange out of the embassy. According to the Foreign Office, the country has to hand Assange over to Sweden after every court in the land rejected his legal efforts to avoid extradition.
The dispute arose when the British Foreign Office wrote an official letter to Ecuadorian officials saying that under a little known legislation they could temporarily suspend the embassy's diplomatic protection in order to allow authorities to enter and arrest WikiLeaks founder. Ecuador's resident has dismissed any steps in that direction as “suicidal”.
In the meantime, Assange’s lawyer Baltasar Garzon explained that Julian was willing to answer Swedish prosecutors’ questions, but only if he was provided some guarantees. According to Assange’s supporters, a secret American grand jury has been empanelled to consider charges against the WikiLeaks founder. However, it is unclear why the United States didn’t ask the United Kingdom to hand him over.
Julian Assange claims that the allegations against him in Sweden are politically motivated. He also believes that Sweden will transfer him to the US, where he could face the death penalty for running WikiLeaks.
In the meantime, Sweden is getting more hacked off with WikiLeaks founder and the local press is starting to wonder why the rest of the world continues ignoring Swedish victims in favor of his tin foil hat defenses.

|Terrible how we treat true heroes today.........|
|Ever watched the original UK TV series Rough Justice by any chance? The Bobby on the beat may well be 'OK' but the 'other departments' have carte blanche powers. Tin foil really doesn't come into it.|

Assange a "true hero?....You must really get out more and associate with real people....The sooner this parasite faces up to his responsibilities like the rest of the human race has to the better....This parasite is costing the British taxpayer enough already and should never have been allowed into the UK in the beginning...All this "clap-trap" about being packaged off to America, if he returns to Sweden, is just a smoke-screen laid down by the parasite to justify him not returning to Sweden for the sake of his moronic "followers"....Ecuador are welcome to him but they to will soon grow to learn that he is all "smoke and mirrors"....At the moment it's good publicity for the Government of Ecuador and takes away from public view some of the Human Rights which their country doesn't practice!
Sorry mate but that's all a bit naive IMHO.
1. How (or why) is Assange a parasite exactly? He did a job that many applauded and in doing so he took a big risk - and knew it.
2. He has offered to meet with Swedish authorities but they say no - yet he has not been charged with any offence: if they want to question him he is available.
3. The US went into OZ (if you remember) and created hell for a certain website 'owner' not long ago - then after the fact (conveniently) a judge rules US actions illegal but they still got what they wanted: Assange knows fine well he won't get a fair shake if he goes to Sweden ostensibly to answer allegations, he'll be off to the US where he'll get a political trial trial before they hang him.
4. How exactly is he costing the British taxpayer anything? What crime is he accused of committing in the UK - none that I know of - so why does the Brit 'legal system' spend money to get him out to ummm Sweden?
The whole thing stinks of politics and if anyone believes that this is a simple case ... well ... I have a nice bridge to sell them too
My opinion costs nothing - same as everyone else's - and like all opinions that's all it's worth. We don't know the full facts of the case and (IMHO again) I seriously doubt that the mainstream media can be trusted to report them. Now there's a bunch of true parasites that's worth worrying about and going after.

1. He's never held or done a "proper" job and paid taxes
2. They have placed charges against him and issued a warrant for his arrest.
3. It was New Zealand not Australia
4. Who do you think pays for all the police and taking a UK courts time up?
It's got absolutely nothing to do with politics...It's a simple case of someone fleeing a country, that has an extradition treaty with the UK, to answer charges of an alleged sexual assault against two women.
|@robin_hood i totally agree well said|
|@robin_hood Well said|
@Boghound ... Do you even know who julian Assange is? Or what he does?
The Guy that leaked 100,000's of documents from world government's that prove that the "Tax Payers" Have been Lied to & what government/millitary agendas really are...
Why do you think the Americans are so desperate to get hold of this guy
i suggest you have a download of this, watch it, make a opinion then take into account no-one would know anything thats in this documentary if he hadn't leaked the files

|With all do respect to the U.K the U.S.A isn't always honest and that is an under statement so one who lives in the U.K shouldn't just trust the U.S.A Government but do their own research.|

|Congrats @Robin_Hood, Boghound was sounding like one of the 'sheeple'. Reading his message affirmed to me that he has no idea what he's talking about. It did not make any sense which is reflective of idiots who believe their government. Thanks to Topaz for the quote, boghound the idiot needs to read this over and over so he can understand what's happening.|
|1. He hasn't been "charged" with anything, so far, in Sweden|
2. He didn't "leak" anything - he published what an American soldier leaked
3. International newspapers like The Guardian, New York Times, etc also published the material
4. He skipped out on his bond in London, and that's against British law
5. US governments have had a string of war-mongering presidents
6. George W Bush, Jr, Tony Blair, John Howard, etc, should face charges in The Hague over the invasion Iraq
7. When will B.Obama close down Guantanamo Bay (like he promised)?
I'm not a fan of Julian Assange. I'm even less a fan of lying western governments, and I guess that's most of them.

|Why won't Sweden just guarantee not to extradite him to USA ?|
It's a very simple solution, or has a deal already been done with the USA ?
|Sweden has a multi billion pound arms industry selling the Saab Grippen fighter, guess where they get the engine?|

|We need to free Julian Assange, if they do him right in front of our eyes... they can do any of us.|
Nothing wrong with information, also @crakis would you trust these governments that have cried wolf thousands of times.

|"where he could face the death penalty for running WikiLeaks"|
Complete nonsense. Under american law he's not even liable. Only the person leaking the information in the first place is....
In my eyes he crossed the line when he published information that directly cost lives in Afghanistan. That's simply unforgivable.
