Ecuador gives up Assange. Wikileaks founder arrested in London

Ecuador’s president Moreno withdrew the asylum of Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was taken out of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London by authorities where he has spent the last six years in asylum.

RT reports that’s only a day after WikiLeaks Editor-in-Chief Kristinn Hrafnsson claimed that an extensive spying operation was conducted against Assange in the Ecuadorian Embassy. During an explosive media conference Hrafnsson alleged that the operation was designed to get Assange extradited.

In the end, the EU27 agreed to a six month extension of Article 50. May and her EU counterparts agreed to an extension of Article 50 until October 31st, with a “review” in June, where, as Zerohedge reports, UK’s compliance with conditions (holding EU elections) will be determined.

French President Emmanuel Macron, who had been insisting on a shorter extension so as to not allow the UK to hold EU elections, in the end folded in line with Merkel.
