Ecuador President Says Assange Must Go, Not To Be Executed

The Ecuadorian embassy that has been harboring whistleblower Julian Assange has declared the dejected WikiLeaks founder must finally leave after his five-year stay. However, the Ecuador President Lenin Moreno says he must be assured that Assange "won't be executed" upon his release back into the open world. Assange's legal team says Ecuador is seeking assurances that the WikiLeaks founder won't be executed. Well, that's a start. How about extradition to a CIA black site? Is his legal team also negotiating a truce with the Deep State as well?

Multiple reports are surfacing that Ecuadorian and British officials are currently discussing an end to his asylum at the Ecuadorian embassy. Ecuadorian president Lenin Moreno was adamant when he spoke with reporters in Madrid that the "only thing" he wanted was a guarantee that Assange would not be executed. This is a seriously dark prospect for Assange because if they are negotiating the death penalty, it can only be assumed that all sides agree that life imprisonment is almost guaranteed for the whistleblower.

Assange initially sought refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy to avoid extradition to Sweden over a rape case which he adamantly denied. The Sweden case has since been dismissed, but Assange is facing legal repercussions of his alleged "abuse" of the embassy by using it as a means of evading the law and skipping bail. Assange refuses to surrender himself to British authorities because he believes he will certainly face retribution from the American government for his website's role in leaking classified documents.

The whole mess started in August 2010 when Assange visited Sweden to speak at a conference. While in the country, he met two women and had a sexual relationship with them both. The two women later accused Assange of rape and molestation and Assange was questioned but never faced formal charges. He was then told he was free to leave Sweden but later in the year Interpol issued a Red Notice for his arrest. He surrendered a week later and appeared in a Westminster court where his supporters helped raise his £240,000 bail. When Swedish prosecutors called for Assange's extradition, he skipped out on bail and fled to the Ecuadorian embassy in Knightsbridge, London.
