INTERVIEW: Ecuadorian diplomat Fidel Navraez on Julian Assange extradition

Last Friday, the US extradition case for Julian Assange was officially opened at Westminster Magistrates Court in London, where formal proceedings  are expected to extend into late February or early March of 2020. 

The following interview was recorded after Julian Assange’s US extradition hearing in London on June 14, 2019, where SUNDAY WIRE host Patrick Henningsen met and spoke with diplomat and former Ecuadorian Consul for the UK, Fidel Navraez, who is also a close friend of Julian Assange and was with him throughout his application and asylum with Ecuador and during a six year  period in the Ecuadorian Embassy serving under the Correa government. This was a very informal and candid interview with Fidel who was able to give some key insights on the case and also on Assange as a person, his politics, his relationship with Ecuador, and also his commitment to WikiLeaks’ mission of transparency and speaking truth to power.
