+ - Ecuador grants Assange political asylum-> 3

Submitted by NSN A392-99-964-5927
NSN A392-99-964-5927 (1559367) writes "Ecuador has granted political asylum to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who requested it after the British Supreme Court refused to reopen his appeal against extradition to Sweden where he is wanted for questioning over alleged sex crimes.

Ecuador took a long time to assess the request, but finally announced that asylum had been granted on August 14th.

WikiLeaks founder has been holed up in the country’s London embassy since June 19.

The asylum guarantees him safe passage from the UK to Ecuador, says Professor Donald Rothwell from the Australian National University College of Law."
