Julian Assange, ecuadorian citizens, got political asylum in Ecuador in 2012 when he was suspected of, inter alia, rape in Sweden. Since then he has lived in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, according to his own statement, for fear of being extradited to the united states.
"the State has the ability to assign and review this political asylum, therefore, we can carry out certain investigations," says Valencia.
Lenín Moreno recently accused Assange of having bugged the telephone calls and the spread of private pictures from his phone. Wikileaks has dismissed the allegations and said that it reported on the leadership contest against Moreno and Ecuador use the information as a pretext to do away with Assange.
Wikileaks has alleged that Ecuador is about to throw out the Assange from the embassy, something that Ecuador has denied.
