Assange asks for political asylum in Ecuador
2012 06 19

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has requested political asylum and is under the protection of the Ecuadorian embassy in London, according to the site’s Twitter.

Ecuador’s foreign minister Ricardo Patino says Assange has taken refuge in the South American nation’s embassy in London and is seeking political asylum.

The Minister also said Ecuador is weighing the request.

Julian Assange, the founder of whistleblower website WikiLeaks, has been under house arrest in the UK since 2010, after Sweden issued an international arrest warrant over allegations of sexual assault.

Swedish authorities accuse him of raping one woman and sexually molesting and coercing another in August that year, while on a visit to Stockholm to give a lecture. He claims both encounters were consensual, and maintains that the case is politically motivated.
