The response of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to the statements of President Lenin Moreno demand a direct call of attention from the Ecuadorian Foreign Ministry, which demands respect for the political will and the asylum granted by the country.
Santiago Orbe, a lawyer specializing in international law, holds that “because it can not be possible for an asylee to contradict the word of the President, who has been elected in the country.” The Australian wrote on Twitter: “who is ill advising Lenin? Who says that I am not allowed to talk about the politics of any country and slanders me calling me a hacker?”
That was his response to statements by President Moreno, who said that Ecuador will continue granting him asylum, although he criticizes the fact that Assange is a hacker. He also asked him to respect his status as an asylee and “do not intervene in Ecuadorian politics or that of friendly countries.” (I).
