Re: Statute of limitations
"No, the embassy is in the sovereign state of Ecuador."
Incorrect. The Embassy is on UK territory and is subject to UK law. However historic conventions mean that those laws are not applied. Legally there is nothing to stop the UK authorities from entering and arrresting Assange. However that is unlikely to happen for fear of setting a precedent which would be used by others against us. No-one wants the Koreans / Iranians / Saudis / Africans to think they have a legal right of entry at any time to western embassys
