Equador president Rafael Correa will grant WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange asylum, according to an article in The Guardian.
“Government sources in Quito confirmed that despite the outstanding legal issues Correa would grant Assange asylum – a move which would annoy Britain, the US and Sweden. They added that the offer was made to Assange several months ago, well before he sought refuge in the embassy, and following confidential negotiations with senior London embassy staff.”
