Julian Assange granted Ecuadorian ID

There have been many rumours flying around in recent days from a 'dead mans switch' over the New Year, to rumours of a pardon from Donald Trump. The British lamestream media has been full of reports that the Ecuadorians wanted to kлick him out of the Embassy.

Now there seems to be reliable information that the Ecuadorians have furnished him with an Ecuadoran  ID which, if there is any justice in this world, would allow him to leave the Embassy safely, perhpas with diplomatic status.

Julian Assange ‘granted Ecuadorian ID’ required for passport, citizenship

10 January, 2018

WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange has cryptically uploaded a picture of himself dressed in the national colors of Ecuador. The country’s media reports the whistleblower has been granted an Ecuadorian ID.

Assange’s ID was issued on December 21, Ecuadorian outlet El Universo reports, citing “reliable sources” and providing the civil registry number to check on the government website. The document number 1729926483, upon checking on the Internal Revenue Service, is indeed registered to one Julian Paul Assange.

Meanwhile, Assange uploaded a photo of himself on Twitter wearing a yellow, blue and red shirt, the colors of the Ecuadorian flag. The post was his first activity on the platform since his strange message on New Year’s Day, which featured a 60 character code and a link to the popular song ‘Paper Planes’ by British rapper MIA. The tweet sparked widespread speculation over what, if anything, the seemingly random string of letters and numbers meant.

RT is trying to verify whether the document in question is indeed related to Julian Assange and to determine the status of his alleged Ecuadorian citizenship.

It appears the Ecuadorian government has granted Julian Assange some kind of formal documentation such as an ID card, human rights activist Peter Tatchell told RT. If that’s the case, it could pave the way for giving him a passport and even diplomatic status, he added.

The granting of an identity card is of course potentially the first step towards being granted citizenship of Ecuador, and beyond that, the possibility that he could be granted diplomatic status, which would give him diplomatic immunity,” Tatchell explained.

And the suggestion might be that if he was granted diplomatic immunity he would therefore be free to leave the embassy and travel to Ecuador, and the British government would not be able to lay a finger on him. That is of course speculation, it’s a long way down the road yet, but clearly the granting of an identity card is a new development which may open the door to further things in the future.”

Earlier in the day, the Ecuadorian Foreign Ministry issued a statement reiterating it is seeking a solution to the problem with the British government, but did not mention anything about an official ID number, passport, or any changes to Assange’s asylum status.

Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London since 2012, when he was accused of sexual assault in Sweden. Although Swedish prosecutors have since dropped the charges, British police remain outside the embassy ready to arrest the WikiLeaks co-founder for breaking his 2012 bail conditions. Assange refuses to surrender to the British authorities, fearing they would extradite him to the United States where he will be prosecuted for his whistleblowing activities.

And the Daily Mail - 

Ecuador 'gives Julian Assange a passport' – just a day after it threatened to kick him out of London embassy in row over tweets

  • WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was issued passport in December, it's claimed
  • Yesterday, the talk was that he may be expelled from the Ecuadorian embassy
  • But it was claimed today that he was granted citizenship back on December 21
  • Assange, 46, posted a pictured of himself wearing an Ecuadorian football shirt

Whereas this report might be going a step too far by strongly  suggesting he's already in Ecudador. I wonder how they might have spirited him out of Britain,past the fascist police.

Just a couple of days ago this was dominating the British press

Ecuador may kick Wikileaks founder Julian Assange out of London embassy

JULIAN Assange may be forced to leave the Ecuadorian embassy in London after the South American country's foreign minister reportedly described his current situation as "untenable".

Dominating the largely pro-Trump You Tube there have been suggestions (that were always flights-of-fantasy) that Trump said Assange was free to walk and even talk that he had sent a mission to rescue him.
