British authorities have “warned” Ecuador that they could raid its embassy and arrest Julian Assange if he is not handed over. The Ecuadorian Foreign Minister responded by saying such a move would be a “flagrant violation” of international law.
Ecuador received a “direct” threat from the authorities in London that they are prepared to storm the Ecuadorian Embassy and arrest Assange if he is not delivered to their custody. Ricardo Patino, Ecuador’s Foreign Minister, said the “written threat,” an aide memoire, was delivered to Ecuador’s Foreign Ministry and ambassador in London.
