Ecuador Deputy Foreign Minister Kintto Lucas has announced that Ecuador will give refuge to Julian Assange, now that he is on the US most wanted list more than ever.
His welcome speech goes like this:
We are going to invite him to come to Ecuador so he can freely present the information he possesses and all the documentation, not just over the Internet but in a variety of public forums.
In a vague attempt to arrest Assange, Sweden released an arrest warrant against him in a rape case. The US has started a criminal investigation against the released tapes. However, they have not charged him with any allegation in the new case yet.
Ecuador has no intent to be a part of this. However, it has shown concern regarding the released information.
