on social media

Assange has been taking refuge in the Ecuadorean Embassy in
London since June 19. The Australian anti-secrecy campaigner,
who enraged Washington in 2010 when his WikiLeaks website
published secret U.S. diplomatic cables, is wanted for
questioning in Sweden over sex crime allegations.

Assange broke his bail terms and requested asylum in
Ecuador. He denies any wrongdoing in Sweden and says he fears
that if extradited there, he could be sent on to the United
States, where he believes he could face criminal charges
punishable by death.

The Ecuadorean government has said it will take as long as
needed to make a thorough analysis of Assange’s asylum
application before making a decision.
