Michael Moore has also tweeted to his followers of this historic event. Foreign Minister Ricard Patino said Britain had earlier in the day issued “a written threat that it could assault our embassy” if Assange is not handed over.
Patino also said he would be announcing whether Ecuador would grant the request of the Assange, who took refuge in Ecuador’s embassy on June 19 to avoid extradition to Sweden. Assange faces questioning there for alleged sexual misconduct.
