  • Assange appears in Ecuador database

Assange has been at the embassy since June 2012 to avoid a Swedish extradition request on a case of alleged rape.

It is a stand-off that should never have begun. Concerns have been raised over whether Assange could soon be forced out of the embassy, as Ecuador reportedly looks to end the "unsustainable" standoff with the United Kingdom authorities. It has cost British taxpayers more than £11 million in wages and overtime for extra police assigned to the embassy, and it has outlasted the tenures of two ambassadors.

"A person can not live in those conditions for ever", Ecuador's foreign minister Maria Fernanda Espinosa has been quoted as saying.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Espinosa said officials were looking for a third country or a prominent worldwide figure to help extricate Assange from the embassy and move him somewhere else. President Lenin Moreno has described Assange as a "hacker", while stressing he would not be kicked out of the embassy.

Weeks before the USA 2016 presidential election, embassy officials cut his internet access over his involvement in leaking documents damaging to US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton while more recently his support for Catalonia's secession has provoked Spain's ire. Mr Assange has been inside the embassy since 2012.

However, Tatchell says "the Ecuadorian government has made it very clear that it wants a resolution [of this whole situation around Assange] and they are prepared to negotiate [to give] a way for Julian Assange [to leave] the embassy". He has limited space in the embassy and faces arrest were he to leave the small apartment in London's Knightsbridge neighborhood.
