Exasperated Ecuador ends asylum for Julian Assange, the world's worst house guest

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison affirmed that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will not be receiving "special treatment" following his arrest and potential extradition to the US.

Announcing his decision to rescind Mr Assange's asylum, Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno cited the Australian's "violating of worldwide conventions and protocol".

Senators react on Capitol Hill Thursday after WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, was arrested at the Ecuadorean embassy in London where he's been seeking political asylum. He faces a USA charge of conspiring to reveal government secrets.

Speaking on Thursday Prime Minister Theresa May said Mr Assange's arrest showed no one is above the law.

While official International Monetary Fund statements make no specific mentions of Assange, the clear link between the two is likely to continue to loom large, particularly in any United States attempts to secure extradition for Assange after having bought his expulsion and ultimate arrest by Britain.

The U.S. Justice Department has charged WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in a computer hacking conspiracy, accusing him of helping former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning break into classified computers.

According to the court, the United States has until 12 June to submit all the papers necessary for extradition. He also said the action was taken after a USA extradition request. He refused to leave the embassy, fearing arrest and extradition to the USA for publishing classified military and diplomatic cables through WikiLeaks. "He will receive the same consular support as any other Australians would in these circumstances".

"When Australians travel overseas and the find themselves in difficulties with the law, they face the judicial systems of those countries", he told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC). "This and other publications have confirmed the world's suspicion that Mr Assange is still linked to WikiLeaks and therefore involved in interfering in internal affairs of other states", Moreno said.
