Spanish judge José de la Mata takes a statement this Friday by videoconference from London to the founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, about the alleged espionage he and his environment were subjected to at the embassy of Ecuador in the British capital, where he was held to avoid being extradited.
Assange, who is being held in London while waiting for his extradition to the United States, will go to the Westminster Court to hear the questions that the magistrate will ask via videoconference at the National Court.
The interrogation takes place in the framework of the investigation of the Spanish company Undercover Global – responsible for the private security of the Ecuadorian embassy in London – for its participation in that alleged spying plot.
