QUITO - The government of Ecuador asked the United Kingdom on Friday to give WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange a liberation to leave the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. Assange could then get asylum in the South American country.
Assange took refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London in June 2012 to prevent extradition to Sweden. In the Scandinavian country he was accused of rape, but Sweden freed Friday to withdraw the international arrest warrant against the Australian and stop the investigation of allegations. The British police informed that he would be arrested as soon as he left the embassy because he was released on bail five years ago but did not go away.
