Julian Assange has assured this Monday morning that he will leave “soon” the Embassy of Ecuador in London, where he has taken refuge over two years in order to avoid extradition to Sweden.
“I can confirm that I will leave the embassy soon,” Assange said, before explaining that his departure will not be due to the reasons “published in the press (group) of Murdoch,” which recently published that he has alleged health problems .
The Sky network had said this morning that Assange was leaving the embassy for health reasons, a statement that particularly seemed the conclusion of one of its experts after a very pessimistic interview of Assange published this weekend.
The Wikileaks founder did not specify when and how he will leave the Ecuadorian embassy or if his departure obeys an agreement with the British authorities to leave the country without extradition.
Foreign Minister Ricardo Patiño accused again the British Government of not seeking a diplomatic solution to the situation of Assange.
