Britain‚ Sweden criticise Ecuador for granting political asylum to Julian Assange
Britain and Sweden have criticized Ecuador for granting political asylum to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange
Assange took refuge at Ecuador's London embassy in June this year‚ as he faced extradition to Sweden in a criminal assault case‚ which he denies.
Britain has said it will not allow him safe passage out of the country.
