Swedish authorities has confirmed that a legal agreement with Ecuador that would allow Swedish prosecutors to question WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange over alleged sexual offenses at the Latin American country’s embassy in London could be adopted as early as this week.
The Ecuadorean Foreign Ministry said the agreement would clear the way for “the interrogation of Mr. Assange in the Embassy of Ecuador in London”, the Wall Street Journal reports.
"The agreement guarantees, among other things, the application and respect of the national legislation and principles of international rights, particularly those related to human rights, and the full exercise of national sovereignty, in any case of legal assistance between Ecuador and Sweden", he said.
Assange fears Sweden would extradite him to the United States.
