The Ecuadorian government has reminded everyone that they still take care of Julian Assange, who has been effectively under house arrest in the embassy. The matter is that he refuses to go to Sweden to face sex charges, while the coppers outside the Ecuadorian embassy waiting to arrest him cost the British taxpayers £3 million annually. They must be well paid coppers, though.
Meanwhile, any hope that the Ecuadorians might have changed their mind after change of government in the country has been dashed – in the interview, the ambassador admitted that Julian is ready to stay at the Ecuadorian embassy for another 5 years. It was denied that Assange’s health was worsening – instead, the ambassador maintained he was “in good spirits” and assured that Ecuador will continue to provide political asylum.
The United Kingdom and Ecuador are in a legal stalemate over how to handle problem with Assange and have created a working group to hammer out a deal. However, the United Kingdom admitted that no substantive progress had been made and any resolution would need to be within the local law. Ecuador claimed that human rights of the Wikileaks founder to safe passage out of the United Kingdom were being violated by an intransigent British government.
As for Julian Assange, he has claimed that if he was extradited to Sweden, he will be sent to the United States and potentially face the death penalty relating to charges of disclosing confidential data, all because of his connections to his own whistleblowing service Wikileaks. The only question he doesn’t want to answer is why if the United States wanted to extradite him they didn’t do so when he was in the United Kingdom. Indeed, the British Secretary Teresa May would have loved to extradite Assange to the US, but the problem is that there is no warrant from the United States for the Wikileaks founder. So, any claims that if Assange didn’t face the music for the sexual offences he would be extradited seems to be only his own thoughts.
Anyway, the Ecuadorian government revealed that they had offered the Swedish legal authorities the opportunity to question Julian Assange about the allegations in their London embassy, but they didn’t get any reply.

I as a British tax payer think it is money well spent waiting to arrest him.If it was anyone else holed up in that embassy and wanted for sex crimes the hole world would be up in uproar wanting him out!. Just because its assange why should he be treated any different.

|Amazing! The biggest story of our lifetimes breaks about a worldwide surveillance state that captures EVERYTHING, and people still want Wikileaks shut down and its founder jailed.|
You people are a real piece of work. You download all your stuff here illegally and thumb your nose at authority. Then you side with the very same authority which wants Assange dead and Wikileaks shut down. You hypocritical motherfxckers.
|@8 i totally agree with you.people should have the right to know what the governments are up to do and this man showed us as for the sex charges what a joke .the condom broke and its a crime ffs|

|Agree with 8&9, if you watch "We.Steal.Secrets.The.Story.of.WikiLeaks" you see footage of murders of innocent civilians by an American helicopter gunner (I'm not Anti-America btw) nothing was done about that, and yet our Governments, US&UK want to destroy the life work of a man who freed us from Government cover-ups, corperate greed etc.... he has started levelling the playing field between those in control and everyone else, that's the reason he was set-up plain and simple.|

|Uhm.... maybe because he'll be rendered to a black site where he'll be put into solitary confinement for several years, subjected to "stress positions" for hours a day and later tried in a secret court with secret evidence, from which he'll be sentenced to death? Bradley Manning is still awaiting trial nearly 3 years after he was captured.|
The prosecutors were offered to fly to London to interview Assange personally, all expenses paid. They said no. They were also offered to interview him via teleconference. Again, they said no. "hmmm wonder why not"
