The Ecuador embassy chapter for Wikileaks founder Julian Assange seems to wrap up after almost about a decade and could be detained by United Kingdom.
It is learned the country is preparing to expel Assange from its embassy in London and development could take place within hours to days.
Wikileaks tweet read Thursday, “A high level source within the Ecuadorian state has told WikiLeaks that Julian Assange will be expelled within ‘hours to days’ using the INAPapers offshore scandal as a pretext – and that it already has an agreement with the UK for his arrest.”
Two days before Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno accused Wikileaks founder of repeatedly violating asylum terms and said talks are in process with Britain to allow Assange leave embassy.
In a radio broadcast to the nation the president said, “Assange has too often repeatedly violated the agreement we have with him and his legal team.”
The nation also suspects Assange may have been behind the private photographs sharing of Moreno on social media.
To avoid arrest and extradition to Sweden the founder has been seeking asylum in the embassy. He is alleged in rape case.

The Swedish judiciary later dropped the case but Britain said Assange will be arrested when he leaves the Ecuadorian embassy.
Assange meanwhile said he fears being extradited to US and could thereafter face charges related to publication of hacked government documents.
