(NaturalNews) Eager to get their warmongering hands on one of the few men in this world that is still willing to speak truth in a sea of lies, officials in the U.K. are contriving ways to covertly arrest Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, and extradite him back to Sweden to face conveniently suspicious allegations of sexual assault. But according to BBC News, the South American nation of Ecuador has stepped in and granted political asylum to Assange, and is now sheltering him at the country's U.K. embassy where he is inaccessible to British law enforcement officials.

The subject of much controversy for blowing the whistle on government corruption and corporate misconduct for several years via his Wikileaks cables, Assange has been a particular target of the U.S., which actually wants to try him for espionage. If American officials have their way, Assange could even face the death penalty, an absolutely astounding predicament considering he has never even been formally charged with committing any crime that would warrant such a punishment.

And yet in the midst of all this, Assange has also had to face numerous sexual assault charges from women who claim that he had non-consensual sex with them. Though he vehemently denies the legitimacy of such claims, having even referred to them as "dirty tricks" hatched by his opposition; Assange would still have to be transferred to Sweden for questioning about the matter. And in the process, he could end up getting abducted, so to speak, and permanently silenced for blowing the lid off global government corruption.

Assange had originally tried to set up a home base in Sweden for Wikileaks because of the country's vital legal protections for whistleblowers. Because of this, he would have to return there to face the sexual assault charges, which seem to be nothing but a ploy to get him into the hands of the police state where he will likely be dealt with outside the formal and proper legal system.

Ecuador proves itself to be a human rights leader in a world of tyranny

Facing continued threats of arrest by U.K. police, which would mean extradition to Sweden and potentially even execution in the U.S., Assange has really had no safe place to lay low other than the Ecuadorian embassy, which he first took refuge in back in June. And if it were not for Ecuador, the lone voice of reason in the entire matter, continuing to stand by Assange and his free speech rights, he surely would already have been thrown to the dogs.

"It was not Britain or my home country, Australia, that stood up to protect me from persecution, but a courageous, independent Latin American nation," said Assange, as he watched the recent press conference in Quito about his asylum with embassy staff. "While today is a historic victory, our struggles have just begun. The unprecedented U.S. investigation against Wikileaks must be stopped."

It is unclear how long Assange plans to stay at the Ecuadorian embassy, and British authorities are now working overtime trying to find some kind of legal loophole that will give them the excuse to swoop in and arrest him. But the world is watching this all play out, and the people of the world are standing strongly behind Assange and his important work, which will make it difficult for the powers that be to try to pull a fast one without incurring the wrath of public outcry and opposition.
