LONDON–The British government has rejected a request from Ecuador to grant diplomatic status to Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks co-founder who has been living in a tiny room in the South American country’s embassy in London since 2012 after seeking political asylum.

“Ecuador knows that the way to resolve this issue is for Julian Assange to leave the embassy to face justice,” the Foreign Office said in a statement, adding that Britain was not in talks with Ecuador about the matter.

Diplomatic status might provide legal immunity for Mr. Assange, allowing him to leave the embassy, where he initially sought refuge after Sweden sought to have him arrested in connection with allegations of rape and assault.

That, in turn, could allow him to travel to Ecuador, where there is speculation that he has been granted citizenship. The Ecuadorean Embassy in London would not comment on the matter.

Sweden is no longer seeking his extradition, but his bigger concern is whether the United States would try to have him extradited for his role in the release of documents that officials have called damaging to national security.

The United States attorney general, Jeff Sessions, has said that arresting Mr. Assange is a priority.

“We have professionals that have been in the security business of the United States for many years that are shocked by the number of leaks, and some of them are quite serious,” he said last year.

When Swedish prosecutors dropped their effort to have him extradited last year, they said it was not for reasons of guilt or innocence but because they saw no hope of compelling Mr. Assange to leave the embassy.

However, the British police say that he is still subject to arrest on charges of jumping bail, and Mr. Assange faces the strong possibility that the United States has issued a secret arrest and extradition warrant in connection with his assistance to Chelsea Manning, the Army private who was later convicted of revealing state secrets.

The request comes amid a flurry of activity suggesting that the Ecuadorean government had ramped up efforts to find a solution for Mr. Assange, a polarizing figure in Ecuador and around the world.

The country’s foreign minister, María Fernanda Espinosa, said on Tuesday that Ecuador was looking for a third-party mediator that could broker a deal to allow Mr. Assange to leave the embassy.

“We’re considering, exploring the possibility of a mediation,” she said, according to Reuters. “No solution can be reached without international cooperation and without cooperation from the United Kingdom, which in addition has shown interest in finding a solution.”

Greg Barns, a lawyer who advises both Mr. Assange and WikiLeaks, said in a telephone interview from New Zealand that the situation was “intolerable” for both his client and for Ecuador.

The embassy is in the affluent Knightsbridge section of London, but Mr. Assange, he said, has been effectively “imprisoned with no access to natural light and fresh air for a period of five and a half years.”

Mr. Barns suggested that the Australian government would be an obvious candidate to step in as a third-party mediator, given that Mr. Assange is a citizen of Australia, which has excellent relations with Britain.

Five years. That’s how long it’s been since Wikileaks founder Julian Assange sought asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy in the UK.

Now Ecuadorian officials have announced that Assange has been granted citizenship following a request for naturalisation in December.

Assange, a controversial figure who moved into London’s Ecuadorian embassy to evade extradition to Sweden back in 2012. Assange alluded to the citizenship status with a Twitter post depicting him in an Ecuadorian football jersey.

Sweden has since abandoned its intention to bring Assange back to the country to face allegations related to sexual assault. Still, Assange remained in the Ecuadorian embassy for fear of being extradited to the United States for his role in releasing classified U.S. intelligence and military documentation, including a video that depicted U.S. troops gunning down a number of non-combatants in Baghdad, including two Reuters journalists and children.

At the time of his work with whistleblower Chelsea Manning, many viewed Assange as a champion of government transparency, though his legacy now is considerably more mixed. Since that time, Assange has taken to openly peddling widely debunked conspiracy theories and lashing out at journalists who revealed that WikiLeaks concealed documents that showed massive payments between Syria and Russia.

Assange’s newfound citizenship has again escalated tensions with Britain, though it’s likely that he’ll leverage the status to make a move out of the Ecuadorian embassy once and for all.

Julian Assange has been a thorn in the side of the global elite for over ten years, and now it’s about to get worse for them.

Assange, who’s been falsely accused of numerous disgusting crimes, has been holed up inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London for nearly half of a a decade. Despite being a virtual prisoner in the embassy, he’s inflicted much damage upon people like Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and other globalists intent on destroying America.

The reason he’s taken refuge inside the embassy is that as soon as he steps foot outside of the building, there will be law enforcement waiting to take him into custody so he can be tried in a kangaroo court and silenced forever. However, he just caught the break of a lifetime, and it has to have globalists panicking.

According to RT, Ecuador has granted citizenship to the founder of Wikileaks as a means to finally resolve his fouled up situation. Further, the Ecuadorian Foreign Ministry has requested that the U.K. give him diplomatic status, which would also give him diplomatic immunity from whatever crimes he’s accused of.

However, for the time being, Ecuador isn’t allowing Assange to leave the embassy because they can’t guarantee his security.

More from RT:

The UK Foreign Office reportedly rejected a request from Quito to grant the whistleblower diplomatic status after the passport was issued to him on December 12.

Ecuador’s foreign minister, Guillaume Long, says the country is seeking a “dignified and just” solution with the UK government over Assange’s case. He added that Assange will not leave Ecuador’s embassy while there are no security guarantees.

A UK Foreign Office spokesman said, according to the Express: “The government of Ecuador recently requested diplomatic status for Mr Assange here in the UK. The UK did not grant that request, nor are we in talks with Ecuador on this matter.

“Ecuador knows that the way to resolve this issue is for Julian Assange to leave the embassy to face justice.”

It comes after Assange posted a picture of himself in an Ecuadorian football shirt amid unconfirmed reports he had been issued an Ecuadorian passport.

Regardless if the UK complies with Ecuador’s request or not, this is huge for Assange, as it places him one step closer to obtaining the freedom that was wrongly stolen from him by the world’s most powerful people. Look at the damage he did while virtually being under arrest, just imagine what he could do as a free man.

The global elites are probably wetting themselves right now.
