Julian Assange Gets Citizenship in Ecuador

The Ecuadorian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) says they have granted naturalization to Julian Assange. The reaction of the MFA comes one day after Quito reportedly granted an ID card to Assange.

The passport could obtain his first step to obtaining diplomatic immunity, as Ecuador wants to resolve Assange’s indefinite embassy stay.

The WikiLeaks founder has been holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy for five years.

The UK Foreign Office reportedly rejected a request from Quito to grant the whistleblower diplomatic status.

The passport was reportedly granted to him on December 12.

Ecuador’s foreign minister says the country is seeking a “dignified and just” solution with the UK government over Assange’s case.
