UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — The ex-president of Ecuador, Rafael Correa, was named executioner by those who decided to extradite the founder of the WikiLeaks portal, Julian Assange to the United States.
The US request for the issuance of Assange certified earlier by the Minister of Internal Affairs of Great Britain Sajid Javid. According to Correa, he always warned of such a development.
“All this was a great deception. Let the world and history never forget who these executioners were,” wrote the former president of Ecuador.
In late May, the United States announced that Assange was charged with new charges in 17 episodes of violation of the law on espionage and the disclosure of secret information. Earlier, the founder of WikiLeaks was accused on one point of conspiracy to hack. As a result, if Assange is issued by the United States, he faces a long-term imprisonment.
In 2010, in Sweden, Julian Assange was accused of sexual harassment and rape, since June 2012 he has been hiding in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. On April 11, 2019, he was detained on orders from Sweden and the USA. A London court found Assange guilty of violating the conditions of bail and sentenced him to 11 months in prison. On May 2, hearings on the extradition of Assange began.
