Ecuador's Prez talking to UK about Assange's six-year London Embassy stay – reports


Re: So much hostility

@The Original Steve: "That'll be the rape accusations that he was interviewed about in Sweden at the time, case was closed and they said he could leave the country.

Nope, he ran out the clock on the statute of limitations for the "minor" offences he was accused of.

The statute of limitations on the rape charge doesn't run out until 2020.

The Swedish prosecutor cancelled the European Arrest Warrant on the basis that Assange wouldn't become available in the near future, but has stated previously that another will be issued post haste should Jules become available.

Which could happen sooner rather than later...
