The meeting could help to solve this case which has come to a deadlock.The Diplomatic Mission of Ecuador is now under tight guard of the police, which is waiting for an opportunity to arrest the Australian publisher and journalist.
In 2010, the Public Prosecution Office of Sweden opened an investigation into sexual harassment of two Swedish females that Assange allegedly committed. Assange denies these accusations.
Despite the fact that the arrest warrant was issued on December 2, 2010, the charges against Julian Assange still haven’t been pressed. In accordance with the Swedish law a suspect must be questioned fist during preliminary investigation.
Assange fears that the Swedish police will deport him to the United States, where he is facing a prison term of up to 35 years on charges of espionage and unauthorized publishing of US military and diplomatic documents.
