    He's been holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy for six years.

    In March, the Ecuadorian government cut Assange’s phone and Internet contact with the outside world and barred his friends and supporters from visiting him.

    The Ecuadorian authorities explained their action by stating that “Assange’s behavior, through his messages on social media, put at risk good relations this country has with the UK, the rest of the EU and other nations.”

    Putting Assange on trial for espionage is a priority according to AG Sessions.

    The vigil coincides with the sixth anniversary of the WikiLeaks founder's self-imposed exile in London's Ecuadorian Embassy.

    Ecuador gives Assange citizenship, seeks end to embassy stay

    Alexandra Valencia, Mark Hosenball

    QUITO/LONDON (Reuters) - Ecuador has given citizenship to Julian Assange as part of its efforts to allow the WikiLeaks founder to leave the country’s London embassy where he has been holed up for more than five years.
    Ecuador made the move hours after the British government refused a request from the South American nation for Assange to be given diplomatic status, which could give him immunity from arrest should he try to leave the embassy.
    After a year in which Ecuador’s president has spoken out against Assange, Ecuador’s Foreign Minister Maria Fernanda Espinosa said she hoped to find a solution to his dilemma.
    “Ecuador is currently exploring other solutions in dialogue with the UK, like good offices of renowned authorities, other states, or international organizations that could facilitate a just, final and dignified solution for all parties,” Espinosa told a press conference in Quito.
    Britain saw only one resolution to the diplomatic standoff.
    “Ecuador knows that the way to resolve this issue is for Julian Assange to leave the embassy to face justice,” said a British Foreign Office spokesman.

    Aust officials pay visit Julian Assange

    WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been visited by officials from the Australian High Commission.

    Two officials on Thursday went to the Ecuadorian embassy in London where Mr Assange has been living for almost six years.

    His internet and phone connections were cut off by the Ecuadorian government six weeks ago and he was denied visitors.

    The Australian-born campaigner fears being extradited to the US if he leaves the embassy and being questioned about the activities of WikiLeaks.

    It is believed to be the first time officials from the Australian High Commission in London have visited him.

    Jennifer Robinson, a member of Mr Assange's legal team, said: "I can confirm we met with Australian government representatives in the embassy today.

    "Julian Assange is in a very serious situation, detained without charge for seven-and-a-half years.

    "He remains in the embassy because of the risk of extradition to the US.

    "That risk is undeniable after numerous statements by Trump administration officials, including the director of the CIA and the US attorney-general.

    "Given the delicate diplomatic situation we cannot comment further at this time."
