Britain acted like empire over Julian Assange: Ecuador

• Rawstory
Britain behaved like it was still an empire in its threat to raid Ecuador’s embassy and arrest WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, the Ecuadoran ambassador to London said in an interview broadcast on Sunday.

Ana Alban told BBC radio that the threat, made in August just before Ecuador granted asylum to Australian-born Assange, was “the biggest mistake” committed by Britain since she became ambassador.
