Police Guarding Julian Assange at London's Ecuadorian Embassy Are Withdrawn

Police officers who have been stationed for more three years outside London's Ecuadorian Embassy to arrest WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange were withdrawn Monday, officials said, reports NBC News.

London's Metropolitan Police had stationed officers 24 hours a day outside the building, ready to arrest him if he left.

On Monday, the force said it was "no longer proportionate to commit officers to a permanent presence."

In a statement, it added that officers remained "committed to executing the arrest warrant and presenting Julian Assange before the court" and vowed to "deploy a number of overt and covert tactics to arrest him."

The cost of the police guards stationed outside the embassy earlier this year was estimated at £10 million (around $15 million).




  1. Absolutely criminally minded thugs. And the sheeple cannot even appreciate the gift that people like Assange and Snowden handed them.

  2. Do police really spend millions of dollars to arrest someone wanted for questioning in a foreign country. I don't think so.
