  • Julian Assange Rejects Deal to Leave Ecuadorian Embassy

"The suggestion that as long as the death penalty is off the table, Mr Assange need not fear persecution is obviously wrong", said Mr Pollack.

MailOnline has contacted the Home Office for comment.

The 251,000 classified cables from USA embassies around the world - released by WikiLeaks in 2010 and published by leading global newspapers - embarrassed the Bush administration in Washington and caused ructions in its bilateral relations with other countries.

He did not say he would force Mr Assange out, but said Mr Assange's legal team is considering its next steps.

There is speculation that the U.S. interest in Assange is connected to the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into Russian interference in the 2016 election that brought President Donald Trump to office.

Last month, an inadvertent court filing in a case unrelated to Assange revealed that he has been charged in secret.

"There is a path for Mr. Assange to take the decision to exit into near freedom", Moreno said in the local radio interview, while noting that the whistleblower still faces jail time in the United Kingdom for violating bail terms when he sought asylum to avoid being extradited to Sweden, where he was wanted for questioning in a sexual assault investigation.

And while Mr Assange remains protected in the Ecuadorian embassy, there have been indications that officials in that country are losing patience with him.

But he said Ecuador was not about to throw Assange out.

In a radio interview on Thursday, Moreno said Britain has provided sufficient guarantees that they would not extradite the Australian activist to any country where he would face the death penalty.

In November, WikiLeaks suggested that the USA authorities might have brought sealed charges against Assange, citing a filing in an unrelated case that used Assange's name in an "apparent cut-and-paste error".

"He will spend a few months in jail, after that, freedom", Moreno said.

Julian Assange has been holed up in the Ecuador embassy in London since 2012.
