Julian Assange to be Granted Asylum In Ecuador (Updated)
Aug 15, 2012 13:20
A recent report says that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will be granted asylum to Ecuador. An Ecuadorian official who has been described as “familiar with government discussions” told The Guardian that Ecuador’s government will approve Assange’s request for asylum.
Ecuador’s president, Rafael Correa, previously said that he would announce his decision about Assange’s asylum request before Friday.
Assange is facing extradition from the United Kingdom to Sweden, where he’s wanted to stand trial for accusations of sexual misconduct. He believes that these charges have been trumped as part of a United States backed plan to get him to a U.S. court to face the unannounced charges related to WikiLeaks' release of classified American diplomatic cables.
But according to BNO News, Ecuador’s Foreign Ministry has not yet made a decision about Assange:

Correa himself has rebuked the story via Twitter:
Rafael Correa @MashiRafael Rumor de asilo a Assange es falso. Todavía no hay ninguna decisión al respecto. Espero informe de Cancillería.
