Julian Assange is given Ecuadorian citizenship to leave embassy

Ecuador Grants Julian Assange Citizenship

It comes after Britain's Foreign Office said on Thursday that it had rejected Ecuador's request to grant diplomatic status to Assange, which would give him immunity from arrest. The WikiLeaks founder has been holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy for five years.

Once the information becomes public, the government focuses on the source of the leaks while ignoring their subject matter, those who provided or circulated false or distorted information, often to hide war crimes. The passport was reportedly granted to him on December 12.

"It is for the government of Ecuador, not the United Kingdom, to determine who is an Ecuadorian citizen", Mr Murray said in an emailed statement. He added that Assange will not leave Ecuador's embassy while there are no security guarantees.

The Vienna convention on diplomatic relations states that someone who holds a diplomatic passport is immune from prosecution.

The captain's comment is interesting given that Rahane's selection in the playing XI had not been called into question even once. The likes of Philander and Rabada stole the show but Indians were not far behind in the full utilization of the conditions.

Ecuador gave Assange political asylum after he sought refuge in its London embassy in 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden to face a rape allegation, which he denies.

Despite the fact Swedish authorities have since dropped their questioning the British police have said that if Assange should leave the embassy he would be arrested for a breach of bail conditions.

The move came as the minister said there were credible threats to Assange's life from third-party states.

When Julian Assange, mastermind behind Wikileaks, leaked tens of thousands of classified documents revealing the USA government's false and misleading information about its war in Afghanistan his life has been in jeopardy.
