Ecuador officials are planning to withdraw asylum protection for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and hand him over to British authorities.
Lenin Moreno, Ecuador’s president, met with British officials in London Friday to finalize the agreement, according to the Intercept.
Assange has been at the embassy since 2012 and will be handed over to the British government within a few weeks. He may be kicked out of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London as early as this week, the Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald reported.
The article goes on to state the following:
Assange first came to the embassy when he faced a warrant for arrest following allegations of sexual assault and rape from the Swedish government. He has denied the allegations, and the investigation was closed last year.
He has stayed in hiding out of concern that he would be sent to the U.S. to be prosecuted for publishing classified documents that were leaked by Chelsea Manning.
