Assange supporters gather at embassy

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange may be expelled from the embassy. No embassy official or any British authorities have commented.

Police said in a statement there is an active warrant for Assange's arrest and that the police are "obliged to execute that warrant should he leave the Embassy". "It is imminent. That is according to our sources", he said.

On Tuesday, Moreno blamed WikiLeaks for recent allegations of offshore corruption that appeared in local media outlets and the publication of family photos to social media.

Supporters of WikiLeaks and Assange rapidly called for an increased presence at the Ecuadorian Embassy, located at Number 3, Hans Crescent in London.

President Lenin Moreno of Ecuador told radio stations on Tuesday that Assange has "repeatedly violated" the terms of his asylum in the Andean nation's London embassy, where he has lived for almost seven years.

WikiLeaks, in a statement, called Moreno's charges "completely bogus", saying it reported on accusations of corruption against the president only after Ecuador's legislature investigated the issue.

Speaking to the Ecuadorean Radio Broadcasters' Association, the president said: "Assange has violated the agreement we reached with him and his legal counsel too many times".

Replacing Obamacare is still a Republican duty
Sisters and Tea Party members of Atlanta, Georgia, Judy Burel (L) and Janis Haddon (R), protest the Obamacare in front of the U.S. He says Republicans are working on a replacement plan, but Congressman Peter Welch says that simply isn't true.

Ecuador a year ago posed new rules for Assange's behaviour while in the embassy, which required him to pay his medical bills and clean up after his pet cat.

"It is not that he cannot speak freely, it is not that he cannot express himself freely, but he cannot lie, let alone hack into accounts or intercept private telephone calls" under the terms of his asylum agreement, Mr Moreno said.

WikiLeaks believes Mr Assange will be extradited to the United States if he leaves the building. Moreno, speaking in a nationwide broadcast February 27, denied any wrongdoing.

The INA papers are the cache of documents published in February 2019, allegedly uncovering the operations of INA Investment Corp, an offshore tax haven created by the brother of Ecuadorian President.

In the same year, the United Kingdom was on the verge of extraditing Assange.

In October, Assange sued Ecuador for violating his "fundamental rights" by limiting his access to the outside world after his internet and mobile phone access were blocked back in March.

But a judge rejected his request to loosen the new living requirements, and among other stipulations, Assange was warned that if he did not properly feed and take care of his cat, the animal could be sent to the pound.
