Julian Assange is still in the embassy,
Ecuador’s foreign minister Ricardo Patino has said requests by Swedish prosecutors to question WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will be accepted, so long as Ecuador’s law is respected.
Patino said in an interview on Ecuador’s Radio Publica on January 15 that Swedish prosecutors could provide Ecuadorian authorities with questions for Assange. These conditions are to ensure “the sovereignty of the Ecuadorian state and the laws in the constitution are respected.”
Ecuador’s foreign minister Ricardo Patino stated, “If they don’t charge [Assange], he can leave.”
