The Foreign Minister of Ecuador, Ricardo Patino, reported that the regime is considering going to international courts for Julian Assange, founder of the information site WikiLeaks, who for exposing confidential cables of many governments sought asylum at the embassy of Ecuador in London, UK. Assange has not left the Ecuadorian headquarters since June 19, 2012.
“It’s been over a year that Mr. Assange is in our embassy. We’ll see, we are seriously considering what we must do in the coming months to use other diplomatic entities because we have been reinforcing our, carrying out proposal after proposal,” said Patino to the seized channel GamaTV.
During the interview, Patino was questioned for the type of entities to be used, given that the foreign minister of Ecuador said “international judicial bodies.” While he said that they could go, for example, the Constitutional Court of Justice to address this issue. “In this entity we might consider the approach, it is not arbitration tribunals that deal with issues between private companies and states.”
Patino ended the topic by saying they have not received any response from the United Kingdom for professional designation to “find legal, political and diplomatic a way out” for Assange. Although Patino said there “is the will to meet” by Great Britain, fail to reach a solution and for him is “absolutely unacceptable” that Assange has almost a year and a half “locked“.
