Ecuador says the British government has warned that it would raid its Embassy in order to arrest Julian Assange the Wikileaks Founder
Maybe the English Government should read about International law and that Embassies located on its soil have rights and these Rights should be respected. Britain is no longer an Empire and will never be one again. They should stop living on its past glory and move ahead as a small tiny Island and focus on tourism promoting sight seeing of its joke of a Monarchy.
QUITO (Reuters) – Ecuador said on Wednesday the British government had threatened to raid its embassy in London ifWikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is not handed over, and that Quito would make its decision on his asylum request on Thursday.
“Today we’ve received a threat by the United Kingdom, a clear and written threat that they could storm our embassy in London if Ecuador refuses to hand in Julian Assange,” Ecuadorean Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino told reporters.
“We are not a British colony,” he added in an angry statement after a meeting with President Rafael Correa.
Ecuador will announce its decision regarding Assange’s asylum request on Thursday at 7 a.m. (1200 GMT), he added, amid media speculation that the government has already decided to grant Assange asylum.
