Australian hacktivist Julian Assange stayed 2,487 days in Ecuador’s London embassy. The ordeal began in August 2012 when former socialist President Rafael Correa granted him asylum as a way to build his own global stature.
On April 10, 2019, the Ecuadorian government stopped protecting Assange and UK police arrested him the next day. On May 1, he was sentenced to 50 weeks in prison for breaching the conditions of his bail and on May 2 he will face a hearing on his extradition to the United States.
