Is Julian Assange About to Be Expelled From London’s Ecuadorian Embassy?

Is Julian Assange About to Be Expelled From London’s Ecuadorian Embassy?by 👩‍💻 Alice Monroe

Claims reverberate over whether or not the controversial WikiLeaks founder will be removed from his long-term domicile

Julian Assange, the founder and main face of document-leaking website WikiLeaks, may be facing expulsion from his safe house of the London Ecuadorian Embassy, with it being suggested that the figure may be removed within ‘hours to days’.

Assange has been resident at the Embassy since 2012, where he sought asylum from Ecuadorian officials while avoiding allegations of sexual assault. The charges would have meant that he would have been extradited to Sweden, where said allegations supposedly took place. However, such a case has been dropped – but six years in, Assange remains a permanent guest at the Embassy.

Assange’s tenure in London has continued as a result of his ongoing concerns over extradition to US, according to CNN. It has recently been reported that the US was pursuing routes to charge the whistleblower on a number of criminal counts. WikiLeaks gained notoriety over the past decade for sharing previously confidential files pertaining to US intelligence and army documentation, among many other dossiers.

However, WikiLeaks remain concerned, it seems, that Assange will be removed from his domicile. The ball was set rolling via Twitter on Thursday 4th April, as the official WikiLeaks account advised that their figurehead would be on the block for expulsion.

“BREAKING: A high level source within the Ecuadorian state has told @WikiLeaks that Julian Assange will be expelled within “hours to days” using the #INAPapers offshore scandal as a pretext— and that it already has an agreement with the UK for his arrest [sic]”, their announcing tweet reads.

If such an expulsion is to go ahead, WikiLeaks has confirmed that it will be a violation of refugee law on an international scale.

“It will be a sad day for democracy if the UK and Ecuadorian governments are willing to act as accomplices to the Trump administration’s determination to prosecute a publisher for publishing truthful information,” an official statement issued on Friday 5th reads.

At the time of writing, Assange remains very much in place. However, the Foreign Ministry for Ecuador has failed to comment on such matters allegedly set to transpire. Jeremy Hunt, British Foreign Secretary, has also re-iterated that Assange is technically a ‘free man’. “(Assange) can leave the Embassy whenever he wants to,” the minister confirmed.

London Metropolitan Police, too, refused to comment on matters – and on whether or not police knew of forthcoming expulsion plans.
