Make it a dignified, a conclusive and a just solution to the case of Australian former hacker, refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since June 19, 2012, said the Foreign Ministry.
Based on international law, the diplomatic office said in a statement that it has “spared no effort” to solve Assange’s asylum “in a dignified manner for both parts.”
It also said it has had to face the stubbornness of the position of the affected countries, which reject any validity of the granted diplomatic asylum and insist on the extradition of the refugee to appear before Sweden judges.”
Assange, through Wikileaks, leaked U.S. diplomatic documents, which is why he is requested at Sweden, where he would be processed for alleged sexual offenses that he denies having committed.
Ecuador granted asylum to Assange by considering that an extradition to a third country, particularly the U.S., could endanger his life, and also because Assange has claimed to be victim of political persecution.
