Ecuador Will Cooperate with Sweden over Assange's Interrogation

QUITO - Ecuador will cooperate with Swedish prosecutors during WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's interrogation.

Assange, accused in Sweden of sexual assault, has been living in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for over three years.

Ecuador's foreign minister Ricardo Patiņo told news website Ecuadorinmediato that since Assange is under Ecuador's protection, the questioning will be conducted according to the country's laws.

The Swedish judicial authorities will present the questions and Ecuadorian prosecutors will take Assange's statements in their presence after which Swedish authorities will decide if there is sufficient cause for a trial against Assange, Patiņo explained.

Swedish prosecutors announced Wednesday they had filed another formal petition with Ecuador to question Julian Assange at the Ecuador embassy in London following the one in June last year, when the two countries had started negotiations.

On June 19, Assange completed three years in the embassy, having sought refuge there after UK courts ruled in favor of his extradition to Sweden.

Assange, 44, is trying to avoid extradition to Sweden as he fears he could be sent to the United States, where he is wanted for one of the largest information leaks in U.S. history.
