The Met website says " Julian Assange, 47, (03.07.71) has today, Thursday 11 April, been arrested by officers from the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) at the Embassy of Ecuador, Hans Crescent, SW1 on a warrant issued by Westminster Magistrates' Court on 29 June 2012, for failing to surrender to the court. "

With the cabal we must look at the words – remember they are wizards and spelling is their power

Dangers need to be neutralised.

I had a look at the official release from Ecuador: https://www.presidencia.gob.ec/ecuador-retira-asilo-diplomatico-a-julian-assange/

What we are seeing is Assange being escorted out of the Embassy by the Diplomatic Service of the Metropolitan police. "El señor Assange ha abandonado la Embajada escoltado por la Policía diplomática inglesa." The arrest must then have taken place outside the embassy.

Ecuador is not aware of any extradition requests. "El señor Assange [...] no tiene al presente ningún pedido de extradición del que tenga conocimiento el Estado ecuatoriano.

Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection (PaDP) is a branch of Protection Command within the Specialist Operations directorate of London's Metropolitan Police Service.

The unit provides protection for foreign missions in London, such as embassies, high commissions, consular sections and official residencies in accordance with Article 22 of the Vienna Convention 1961.

Article 22

1.The premises of the mission shall be inviolable.The agents of the receiving State may not enter them, except with the consent of the head of the mission.

2.The receiving State is under a special duty to take all appropriate steps to protect the premises of the mission against any intrusion or damage and to prevent any disturbance of the peace of the mission or impairment of its dignity.

3.The premises of the mission, their furnishings and other property there on and the means of transport of the mission shall be immune from search, requisition, attachment or execution.

So that explains all that - the ambassador rings the cops - says there is a disturbance here come sort it out - the cops arrive escort the man (Assange or whoever it is) out of the embassy to prevent the disturbance and arrest him on the steps for breech of bail.

I think this wraps it up nicely. The rest is his story, as they say.

Let's go a bit further down the rabbit the hole - 😲 'or maybe it just one big act'

It is interesting that Dan Peña - a multi-multi-billionaire says he knows 'the guy' behind Bitcoin - not he knows 'who' is behind it - if it were a 'group' you could disguise that by saying 'who' - which could be one person - a group - an organisation - the NSA - CIA or whatever. He says the guy so it is one man and when it is known that  this guy is behind Bitcoin, it will go to zero - this guy must be someone well known - someone famous - someone infamous. i am not clear that knowing Assange were behind BTC should necessarily send it to zero but Dan Peña thinks it will. If i knew the NSA were behind it that would not give me confidence - it would suggest the motives behind BTC were not good and there were many back doors to steal my coins - but Assange? Is Assange an evil genius? i'm not sure. He might be to CNN viewers, to many he is a hero - it might boost the value of the coin.

One thing that struck me with his court hearing is that the Judge in his closing statement called Assange a narcissist. This is problematic in a few ways:

  • It's a subjective opinion
  • It's an unqualified opinion
  • It has nothing to do with law - the judge's only purpose for being there

The courts allow judges to give these non-law speeches at the end of trials, and it's like a PM giving a subjective speech, in that they are for public consumption rather than an academic objective conclusion. The whole Assange episode feels like a political whitewash.
