Ecuador: Assange's seized devices reviewed in Quito private hearing

Эквадор, Quito

Julian Assange's lawyer Carlos Poveda attended a private hearing at Quito's Criminalistics Department on Wednesday, where the WikiLeaks founder's seized electronic devices were to be extracted and reviewed.

Poveda said, "We asked for copies of the devices, and the judge declined it." According to Poveda, the judge's refusal was "against the Inter-American [Convention] on Criminal Assistance, the Ecuadorian constitution and law."

Assange's lawyer noted that his defendant's health status remains "complicated," adding that "it looks like" the US extradition hearing will take place in February despite the defence team's request to postpone it due to the defendant's poor health.

Poveda also noted that "there is a possibility to sue the Ecuadorian state," which he said they would proceed with "in the next few days."

Assange will face a US extradition hearing in February on charges of espionage. Assange was forced to reside in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for almost seven years, after he entered the property on June 19, 2012, claiming diplomatic asylum.

He was arrested by the UK police on April 11, 2019 after Ecuador officially revoked his asylum status and allowed the UK police to escort him from the embassy and into custody. Assange was sentenced to 50 weeks in prison on May 1 for breaching his bail conditions, when he took refuge in the embassy in 2012.
