Wikileaks: Assange To Be Expelled From Embassy

Agence France-Presse reports:

Julian Assange’s stay at the Ecuadorean embassy will reportedly end within “hours to days.” WikiLeaks tweeted today that its founder would be turfed out of the embassy in London where he has lived for more than six years.

“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,” the tweet said.

The news comes after the INA Papers website published allegations of corruption involving Ecuadorean President Lenin Moreno. WikiLeaks has told AP: “If President Moreno wants to illegally terminate a refugee publisher’s asylum to cover up an offshore corruption scandal, history will not be kind”.
