Finally WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange was granted an Ecuadorian identity card which is required for receiving the country’s citizenship, according to reports of the country’s media.
The information appeared after Assange published a photo of himself on Twitter wearing a national Ecuadorian football shirt. Footage shows the exterior of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London where Assange remains holed up.
However, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange’s whereabouts have been shrouded in mystery since he posted a cryptic tweet on New Year’s Eve and seemingly disappeared afterward. Many his followers feared it may be a “dead man’s switch” which could be a sign he is in danger, while others believe it’s a hint towards an imminent Wikileaks drop.
Assange was granted asylum by Ecuador in August 2012 and has remained in the Embassy of Ecuador in London since then.
That’s why Assange has been residing in the Ecuadorean embassy in London since 2012, with British police waiting outside, ready to arrest the WikiLeaks founder for breaking his 2012 bail conditions.
Now, the infamous whistleblower has suddenly reappeared by posting a photo of himself looking more tanned than usual and wearing an Ecuadorian soccer shirt.
