Julian Assange is to be 'kicked out of the Ecuadorean embassy in London within hours and arrested' claim Wikileaks.

Wikileaks made the claim about its founder in a tweet last night and quoted a high-level Ecuadorean government source.



It also said that Quito has an agreement with the UK to arrest him.

Mr Assange took refuge in Ecuador's London embassy in 2012 to avoid being extradited to Sweden, where authorities wanted to question him as part of a sexual assault investigation.

In the tweet it said: 'A high level source within the Ecuadorean state has told that Julian Assange will be expelled within 'hours to days' using the offshore scandal as a pretext--and that it already has an agreement with the UK for his arrest.'

Around 2am today WikiLeaks replied to its original tweet to say that it 'has secondary confirmation from another high-level source within the Equadorean state' that Assange is to be booted out of the embassy.

Following the announcement calls were made on Twitter to fill the streets outside the building to protect Assange.

As of 2am protesters were seen setting up orange tents on the pavement outside the embassy. A police car is also parked outside the building.

Ecuadorean newspaper, El Comercio said in a Tweet that the country's government remained tight-lipped about Assange's possible expulsion.

It said: 'The Ecuadorian Chancellery says that it does not answer rumors, after Wikileaks publication on alleged expulsion of Julian Assange from the Embassy in London. Quito has demanded compliance with a protoco'.

Expulsion from the embassy would put Mr Assange at risk of extradition to the United States.

Mr Assange has long maintained the he faces charges under seal in the US for revealing highly sensitive government information on his website.

The news of his possible imminent expulsion from the embassy comes after Ecuadorean President Lenin Moreno said on Tuesday that Assange has 'repeatedly violated' the terms of his asylum in the Andean nation's London embassy.

Moreno told Ecuadorean broadcasters that 'Assange cannot lie or, much less, hack into private accounts or private phones' under the terms of his asylum.

The president said that photos of his bedroom, what he eats and how his wife and friends dance had been shared on social media.

But he did not accuse WikiLeaks of circulating hacked photos of his family and wiretapping his phone calls and private conversation.

The president said: 'We should ensure Mr Assange's life is not at risk but he's violated the agreement we have with him so many times'.

But the Ecuadorean government has previously said it believes WikiLeaks of sharing the photos, some of which show photos which date back several years to when Moreno and his family live in Geneva.

Moreno said the terms restrict him from 'intervening in the politics of countries, or worse friendly countries'.

The Ecuadorean government has directly referred to WikiLeaks in a complaint to a special rapporteur for the right to privacy.

On Tuesday WikiLeaks tweeted that Moreno would take a decision about Mr Assange's fate 'in the short term' after it reported on an 'offshore corruption scandal wracking his government'.

The sexual assault probe in to Mr Assange was later dropped, but he fears he could be extradited to face charges in the United States, where federal prosecutors are investigating WikiLeaks.

Mr Assange denied their claims but refused to travel to Sweden to face them.

He said travelling to the country was part of a ruse to extradite him to the US due to his involvement in the leaking of a huge amount of classified documents in 2010.

He says Ecuador is seeking to end his asylum and is putting pressure on him by isolating him from visitors and spying on him.

Ecuador has said its treatment of Mr Assange was in line with international law, but that his situation 'cannot be extended indefinitely.'

In February Assange was issued with a new Australian passport clearing the way for him to leave the Ecuadorian Embassy.

Good. The dude was a pretentious faggot and for all his claims of wanting to free global information he focused his efforts entirely on America and did so in a way that actually put people's lives at risk.
we don't needs Assange, because drumph jailed all those pretentious faggots from NSA who spy on American people already, and Hilary, he also jailed her.

I think that info was already sold to Chinese long time ago, anyway.

-It's that lack of cleanliness, among other things, that fueled Ecuador's recent attempts to end his five-year stand-off at the Knightsbridge embassy, the International Business Times reported.
-Staff at the Ecuador Embassy in London grew tired of the whiffing WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who reportedly does not attend to his own personal hygiene.

Assange has posted encrypted "insurance files" in the past. Presumably, if anything were to happen to him, the keys to the files will be posted. It's gonna be an interesting next couple of months if that's done. Given how damning files he's posted in the past have been, I wonder how much more damning these files have to be in order for him to keep them as insurance.

I hope he burns a bunch of shit to the ground.

This is a really idiotic move. A leader of worldwide information leaks is not somebody you should form animosity with. Ecuadorian government likely has a lot of secrets, same as any other country. If he's booted from the embassy, that will do nothing but ruin goodwill with the country. I wouldn't be surprised to see a lot of top-level information leaked in the coming months if this goes through.

Ironically, the pretext they're using for expelling him is leaks of private data by Wikileaks.

At best he has a bunch of shit that will be of interest to historians. He's been holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy for a looooong time. Standard declassification window for Top Secret level intelligence is 25 years, and the time gap to his glory days cover more then half that time. Enough cushion that what he does have behind those encryption keys is most likely more dead Iraqis and shady business dealing by the Bush Administration. Woop dee do.

Ecuador will be fine. Most people can't even find it on a map, and the people who live there already know their government is corrupt. The only shocking thing Wikileaks could tell them was that they were honest brokers all this time.

Maybe that's part of the reason why they're kicking him out, he leaks confidential, how do they know with certainty that he'll not leak something that they don't want out there? For example when countries receive traitors it's not uncommon for them to distrust them, because why should you trust them if they've already betrayed their country of origin, I could see something like that being plausible.

He didn't betray his country of origin, though. He "betrayed" the United States, which he isn't a citizen of and has no obligations towards.

I think its more the changing political tides in South America. Assange was given asylum by Ecuador because it was pretty clear that he was an enemy of the imperialist Yankee Americans. It was a good PR move for the Ecuadorian politicians to stick it in the eye of the Diablo del Norte. Thing is, since then Assange and Wikileaks very publicly became best buddies with Russia. And the times they do change. Venezuela has gone to hell in a hand basket and is exporting misery to its neighbors on the continent. And who is helping to prop up that failed state and insure a steady export of misery to other South American Countries? Russia. Suddenly America doesn't seem so bad anymore, especially to a rising generation of voters where the excesses of Americas colonial and cold war past are historical notes and not lived experience. As opposed to the lived experience of Russian shenanigans in Venezuela causing huge problems.

Probably for most files, he did post an 83gb torrent to more insurance files in 2016, so who knows what he has. If anything the info could contain sensitive military information, like strategy, location of bases, names of spies, blueprints, general intel on enemy forces, maybe more, maybe less. Either way, I'm extremely curious to see what's in those files. Info maybe not interesting to the larger public, but would be interesting to foreign governments.
