Wikileaks – Julian Assange Seeks Asylum Ecuador Embassy

Ecuador’s government has called on Saturday for consultations its ambassador in the UK, Ana Albán, to consider the application for political asylum from the creator of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, as confirmed by the Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa.

“We are calling for consultation with our ambassador in London because it is a very serious case of something really important,” said Correa. “We will take with all prudence, responsibility and seriousness here, but without accepting pressures absolutely no one” has topped Correa, as recorded by the BBC.

Assange took refuge this week in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London to avoid extradition to Sweden, which could mean also a deportation to the United States. In hindsight, the founder of Wikileaks, applied for asylum the Correa government.

This was confirmed on Friday Assange lawyer, claiming he knows that Ecuador “is a country that can not be manipulated by the U.S.” after the founder of Wikileaks itself ensure that it is prepared to live in Ecuador and that his people has provided “very supportive”.

“We hope that the asylum application is viewed favorably. It’s a matter of gathering sufficient evidence of what is happening in the U.S. and send it along with the formal request,” he argued.
