Assange interview at Ecuador's London embassy set for Nov 14

PanARMENIAN.Net - Julian Assange will be interviewed at Ecuador's London embassy on November 14, Swedish prosecutors said on Monday, November 7, in a move that could end a long diplomatic deadlock that has seen the WikiLeaks founder holed up in the London residence since 2012, Reuters reports.

"Ecuador has granted the Swedish request for legal assistance in criminal matters and the interview will be conducted by an Ecuadorian prosecutor," the Swedish Prosecution Authority said in a statement.

The Swedish assistant prosecutor, Chief Prosecutor Ingrid Isgren, and a Swedish police investigator have been allowed to be present at the interview. They will report the findings to Sweden.

Swedish authorities want to question Assange over allegations that he committed rape in 2010. Assange denies the allegations.
