Blackmailers threaten release of Julian Assange's embassy 'sex secrets'

He said the protocol imposed in October has allowed the country to cut its budget for maintaining Assange, which officials had estimated at $1 million a year.

A police spokesperson said: "Julian Assange, 47, has today, Thursday 11 April, been arrested by officers from the Metropolitan Police Service at the Embassy of Ecuador, Hans Crescent, SW1 on a warrant issued by Westminster Magistrates' Court on 29 June 2012, for failing to surrender to the court".

The comment sparked huge worldwide interest, with hundreds of Mr Assange's supporters going to the embassy to protest.

During an explosive press conference, which is still underway, Hrafnsson alleges that the operation was created to get Assange extradited.

It claimed a "high-level" source had told the organisation that Assange would be booted out of the embassy in London.

The Wikileaks Twitter account posted: "Ecuador has illigally [sic] terminated Assange political asylum in violation of global law".

To some, Mr Assange is a hero for exposing what supporters cast as abuse of power by modern states and for championing free speech.

The OnePlus 7 Pro variant was also spotted on Bluetooth certification site, nearly confirming the arrival of this variant. It is pretty evident that the 5G variant will be featuring Snapdragon 855 SoC and Qualcomm's X50 5G modem as well.

Assange says that is all a plot to get him extradited to the U.S., although at the time he skipped bail there was no evidence that had happened at all.

But to others he is a rebel who has undermined the security of the United States. Reuters was unable to independently verify the allegations.

Mr Assange has been living inside the embassy for nearly seven years, believing he will be extradited to the United States for questioning over the activities of WikiLeaks if he leaves the building.

"We know that there was a request to hand over visitor's logs from the embassy and video recordings from within the security cameras in the embassy", Hrafnsson added.

Hrafnsson said the push to evict Assange from the embassy "has been escalating" over the past weeks and days.

Though a rape accusation was later dropped, there is still an active warrant for his arrest in Britain for failing to comply with his bail terms.

Later that year, the group released over 90,000 secret documents detailing the USA -led military campaign in Afghanistan, followed by nearly 400,000 internal US military reports detailing operations in Iraq.
