Julian Assange: Ecuador grants Wikileaks founder asylum

Post by justme3 on 16.08.12 13:58

I wonder what other nuggets of gold he'll release, now that he has had asylum?

So they have moved quickly to give him assylum after this story appeared earlier today...............

[snipped from article]

'Improper' threat

At a news conference in Quito on Wednesday, Ecuador's Foreign Minister, Ricardo Patino, said a letter from the UK government had been delivered through a British embassy official.

"Today we received from the United Kingdom an express threat, in writing, that they might storm our embassy in London if we don't hand over Julian Assange," he said.

And this is the story just appeared..............

Julian Assange: Ecuador grants Wikileaks founder asylum


[snipped from article]

Ecuador has granted asylum to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange two months after he took refuge in its London embassy while fighting extradition from the UK.

It said there were fears Mr Assange's human rights might be violated.

Foreign minister Ricardo Patino accused the UK of making an "open threat" to enter its embassy to arrest him.

I am delighted JA has been granted asylum, I do not understand how he could be granted fair treatment if questioned in Sweden when as far as I know all the documentation he has received has been in Swedish, a language he neither speaks nor understands.
I cannot see the UK revoking the Ecuadorian embassy's diplomatic status, thereby having to expell all the staff. There would be a major diplomatic incident.
Why can't the Swedish detectives come to the UK to question him? Maybe because they have little or no evidence against him ?
As long as there have been remarks re- treason made in public by the neo-cons in the USA, as unlikely as that would stand up in a court, if the man thinks he is in danger he is entitled to asylum if he believes the Swedes might agree to extradite him to the USA.
He is eccentric and a maverick and more than a little weird, but good on him for having the guts to expose corruption.

eta. The UK is becoming more and more the USA's " bitch" [excuse my French].
Maybe the embassy can get him out in a diplomatic bag ! The police can't afford 24 hour surveillance indefinitely. I hope he stays a while to let the dust settle and then is sneaked out to a private airfield.

Discussion on The Wright Stuff about the cost of 'guarding' Assange. They are not guarding anyone are they, just lurking outside in order to arrest him if he emerges? It's a stakeout!!



Julian Assange: Costs of policing Wikileaks founder reach £10m
Scotland Yard has spent about £10m providing a 24-hour guard at the Ecuadorean embassy in London since Wikileaks founder Julian Assange claimed asylum there, figures show.

Why can't our Government ask USA and Sweden to pay the cost of policing?

You got to be joking.

USA want their hands on him ! 

What better way to demand that this government hand him over instead, rather than meet demand !
