ecuadorian embassy: In this Friday May 19, 2017 file photo, Wiki Leaks founder Julian Assange greets supporters outside the Ecuadorian embassy in London, according to Toronto Star. Ecuador's President Lenin Moreno said on Tuesday, March 2, 2019, that he wants to reach an agreement for Assange to leave the Embassy in London as soon as possible, as long as his life is not in danger. In a speech to the Ecuadorian Broadcasting Association on Tuesday, Moreno accused Wiki Leaks of intercepting phone calls and private conversations as well as photos of my bedroom, what I eat, and how my wife and daughters and friends dance. Frank Augstein, File / AP Photo Moreno provided no evidence, but the speech reflected ongoing tension between Wiki Leaks founder Julian Assange and his hosts at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. If President Moreno wants to illegally terminate a refugee publisher's asylum to cover up an offshore corruption scandal, history will not be kind, Wiki Leaks said in a statement. Wiki Leaks in a statement called Moreno's charges completely bogus, saying it reported on the accusations of corruption against the president only after Ecuador's legislature investigated the issue.
