Ecuador Ratifies Support for the Human Rights of Julian Assange


The statement, issued through the Twitter account of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Human Mobility, responds to comments on the networks about an alleged decision of the executive to remove the WikiLeaks founder's status.

'Attention! Given the rumors circulating in social networks, the Foreign Ministry reiterates that there is no change in the status of asylum for #JulianAssange. Ecuador will maintain protection as soon as his human rights are endangered,' the Foreign Ministry reported on Twitter.

Assange, whose web portal became worldwide known after spreading thousands of classified documents, especially from the Washington administration, remains unable to leave the Ecuadorian offices, before the threats of the British authorities to apprehend him and extradite him to the United States.

The Australian had a pending process in Sweden for alleged sexual crimes, with charges never formulated, which was filed by the judicial system of that European country.

Quito asked London to grant safe conduct to the cyber-activist, taking into account the Swedish decision, but to date the petition has not been executed. With that permission, Assange could travel to Ecuador.
