Julian Assange makes Run for Ecuador Embassy, Scotland Yard waits for him Outside

Jun 20 2012, 7:13am CDT | by

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange seeks asylum at Ecuador Embassy in London.

Julian Assange upped the stakes this week by fleeing into the Ecuador Embassy in London. He faces extradition to Sweden because of sexual assault charges. He denies these allegations and says that they are a setup to get him sent to the United States to face charges because of the WikiLeaks activities.

According to The Guardian , Assange chose Ecuador to apply for political asylum because of good relationships between him and the Ecuadorian president Rafael Correa.

If he gets asylum then the next problem is how to get to Ecuador without Scotland Yard taking him into custody.

Global Summit To End Sexual Violence In Conflict
Well well well. Amal Alamuddin got photographed in London today. Guess where she was? The Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict. The event co-hosted by UK Foreign Secretary William Hague and Angelina Jolie. And herein lies one of the big reasons that George Clooney finally chose someone “at his level” (how patronizing): George hasn’t dated any women in the past 15 years that would have ever attended an event like this legitimatel ...

Global Summit To End Sexual Violence In Conflict
I think the UK papers are getting gossip tips from my mom. Seriously. Ever since George Clooney announced his engagement to Amal Alamuddin, my mother has been theorizing that George is getting ready to run for office. I kept telling her that her theory made no sense. How would marrying a British-Lebanese lawyer – who coincidentally represents Julian Assange of all people – help with George’s woul ...
