Julian Assange remains inside the Ecuadorean embassy after three nights. Assange, 40, faces extradition to Sweden on allegations of sexual assault, after Britain's Supreme Court rejected his final appeal last week. A 10-day period of extradition begins on June 28. His arrival at the embassy was confirmed 19 June by Ricardo Patino, Ecuador's Foreign Minister, in Quito. He said Assange, an Australian citizen, had requested political asylum.
