Ecuador Says It Has Been “Infiltrated From All Sides” By Surveillance

Ecuador’s heavy involvement with Julian Assange and WikiLeaks as well as their relatively tentative involvement with the NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, has reportedly left them being “infiltrated from all sides” according to their Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino. He stated that they found a bugged microphone at their embassy in London where Julian Assange is currently residing. Ricardo Patino refused to state which nation the bugged microphone belonged to but he did mention that Ecuador would contact the appropriate nation to ask for an explanation.

Ricardo Patino went on to further state that he believed the bugged embassy in London showed a:

“loss of ethics at an international level in the relations that we have with other governments”

This loss of ethics towards Ecuador is probably in part due to their decision to offer Julian Assange a rite of safe passage and give him a safe place to stay in the Ecuador’s London embassy. Apparently the bug had been found 3 weeks ago but was kept quiet to avoid causing a stir as the Ecuadorian Foreign Minister visited the UK to discuss Julian Assange. This discovery comes in the wake of the EU calling for a search of all diplomatic ministeries and buildings to remove American surveillance bugs.

    He doesn’t have to state who bugged the offices, we can all hazard a ‘right on the money’ guess.
