Ecuador raises Julian Assange case with Labour

• The Guardian
 

Ecuadorean diplomats have raised the case of Julian Assange with the Labour party as part of attempts to lay the groundwork for a resolution of the diplomatic standoff between Britain and the South American state over the WikiLeaks' founder.

As part of its continuing search for an end to the impasse, Ecuador has been seeking a commitment from the coalition that it would not support Assange's onward extradition to the US should he choose to go to Sweden to face allegations of rape and sexual assault.
 
In an indication that the Ecuadoreans are now also setting their sights on a possible change of government after the 2015 election, Ecuador's ambassador, Ana Alban, raised Assange's case during a meeting with the shadow foreign minister, Kerry McCarthy.
