Ecuadorean Foreign Minister Calls on British Prime Minister to Respect UN Ruling on Julian Assange

Quito, February 12 (RHC)-- Ecuador’s Foreign Minister Ricardo Patiño has criticized British Prime Minister David Cameron for his response to the recent ruling by the United Nations regarding WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

Last week, Cameron branded the UN ruling as “ridiculous.”  The United Nations declared that Assange’s three and a half year stay at the Ecuadorean embassy in London amounted to “arbitrary detention” by British and Swedish authorities.

The Ecuadorean foreign minister said: “Now, if Mr. Cameron believes the ruling is ridiculous, then to me, what I think is ridiculous is his reaction, which is disrespectful.”
