Ecuador president says Wikileak’s Julian Assange MUST leave embassy but wants assurances he won’t be executed

JULIAN Assange's legal team says Ecuador is seeking assurances he won't be EXECUTED if he is forced to leave its embassy in London.

Speculation about Assange's future has grown in recent days, amid reports that officials from Ecuador and Britain are discussing how to remove him after revocation of his asylum.

Ecuadorian president Lenin Moreno today told reporters in Madrid the "only thing" he wants is a guarantee Assange will avoid a death penalty.

He added that the "only person" he hasn't spoken to regarding the Wikileaks founder's plight "is Mr Assange" himself.

It comes as a source close to Assange today told Reuters his embassy standoff situation was coming to a head.
