More a case of Ecuador behaving like a banana republic.
Ecuador IS a banana republic, just slightly better than Bolivia.
And I live like next door to the country so trust me, I've been there quite a bit lately and I know how much of a clown Correa is.
Now, Assange is just trying to avoid the justice, I don't know about the motivations behind the case but if he was innocent he wouldn't go to all this trouble to escape the law, conspiracy theories out of the question.
UK should never try to go to another country's embassy 'cuz it would be a violation of sovereignity but Ecuador shouldn't have given the guy asylum in the first place, this isn't a political case (legally speaking) but common law.
The fun part is that Correa is bitching about something he did himself when the "El Comercio" director requested asylum in the Panama embassy in Quito, guy was nearly crazy about that and now he's saying the opposite
And the plot thickens 'cuz Anonymous is tweeting a link to encripted info, the password will be given if Assange is captured, Lord knows what's in there
