Embassy of Ecuador, London

Supporters of the WikiLeaks founder claim coronavirus is spreading through Belmarsh prison, where Assange is being held.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been sentenced to 50 weeks in jail for skipping bail in June 2012, when he sought refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy. He stayed in the embassy for seven years to avoid an extradition order to Sweden over rape allegations. Assange still faces extradition to the U.S. over the distribution of government documents.
Julian Assange was removed from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London after making the building his safe haven for seven years. The Ecuadorian government revoked his asylum status, which allowed the UK government to arrest him for skipping bail on an extradition charge. The US followed up with their own charges of alleged conspiracy with Chelsea Manning “to break a password to a classified US government computer”. Assange had some high profile visitors over the years, including Pamela Anderson and Noam Chomsky, as well as a feline companion affectionately known as “embassy cat”.
Including the time Nigel Farage 'couldn't remember' what he was doing in the building.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been arrested by the Metropolitan Police inside the Ecuadorian Embassy. The police were carrying out an arrest warrant issued in 2012. Assange took refuge in the embassy in the same year to avoid extradition to Sweden on sexual assault charges which were eventually dropped. Assange remained in the embassy fearing he would be arrested by British authorities and extradited to the United States where federal prosecutors were investigating WikiLeaks.
The WikiLeaks founder was also arrested for breaching his bail conditions.
