Ecuador is about to seek refuge from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and evacuate him from the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he has lived for six years, journalist Glenn Greenwald said Saturday.
Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno traveled to Britain on Friday to meet with officials to close a deal under which Assange is being withdrawn and handed over to the British authorities, Greenwald wrote on his website The Intercept
The Australian He has been living in Ecuador's London Embassy since 2012 after he has paid bail on sexual assault in Sweden. He can not be arrested inside the embassy.
Sweden has since dropped its case against him, but Assange believes that he will be extradited to the US to question WikiLeaks activities when he leaves the building.
