Assange ‘can stay in embassy indefinitely’: Ecuador
London: Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa has said Wikileaks founder Julian Assange can remain in its embassy in London as long as Britain refused to give him safe passage.
“The problem is that they aren`t going to give him the safe conduct,” Correa said in a radio interview.
“Assange can stay indefinitely in our embassy,” he added.
According to news.com.au, about 20 British police were stationed outside the embassy, ready to arrest Assange if he leaves the premises.
British Foreign Secretary William Hague had said his government was obliged under its own laws to extradite Assange to Sweden, where he is wanted for questioning over alleged sex crimes.
“No one, least of all the government of Ecuador, should be in any doubt that we are determined to carry out our legal obligation to see Assange extradited to Sweden,” Hague said.
