#Assange lawyer Carlos Poveda: "We sent 2 letters to the Foreign Ministry of #Ecuador, one about 10 days ago, the other about 5 days ago... They haven't responded to us." #FreeAssange #Unity4J…
Poveda said the letters "indicated precisely the concerns we have over withdrawal of nationality and asylum." So @Lenin Moreno is also planning to withdraw citizenship? He has to if he wants to legally evict #ASSANGE: #Ecuador's constitution protects citizens from extradition.
Poveda said #Assange's lawyers have been "keeping an eye on UK newspapers" and seeking to meet @Lenin Moreno "but at the moment there seems no possibility of doing so."
Poveda said that if #ASSANGE were being evicted he could still appeal to a higher level: "he has the right to meet state representatives and establish real evidence that he will be extradited to a third state."
Poveda said there is a lot of speculation but at this stage the only thing they can be sure of is the letters #Assange's defence team sent and Ecuador's refusal to meet with them.
Moreno is attending a disability forum at London's Olympic Park today Tues 23 July at 6:30pm then Hotel Intercontinental 8:45pm. He flies to Spain tomorrow. Edinburgh is also on his itinerary but I'm not sure when/where/why.
Also worth noting that Ecuador FM @ValenciaJoseEc previously said #Assange situation was in President @Lenin's hands, which may explain why nobody has responded to lawyers' letters.
Finally: the govt in Spain has changed since Julian was silenced months ago. But the new Socialist govt also took a hard line against #Catalonia. They would welcome Moreno evicting #Assange while on Spanish soil. Stay alert, folks!
