    Assange’s ID was issued on December 21, Ecuadorian outlet El Universo reports, citing ‘reliable sources’ and providing the civil registry number to check on the government website. The document number 1729926483, upon checking on the Internal Revenue Service, is indeed registered to one Julian Paul Assange.”

  • RT World News: Assange getting Ecuadorian ID could be ‘first step’ to diplomatic immunity – rights activist (10 Jan, 2018)

    ‘Granting an identity card is potentially the first step towards granting citizenship of Ecuador. And there is a possibility that he could be then granted a diplomatic status, which would give him diplomatic immunity,’ Tatchell, who is a human rights campaigner and the director of the Peter Tatchell Foundation, said. He added that diplomatic immunity would mean that the WikiLeaks co-founder would be ‘free to leave the embassy and travel to Ecuador and the British government would not be able to lay a finger on him.’
