The Ecuadorian government has removed its ambassador to the UK, sparking speculation over Julian Assange’s future at the diplomatic mission there.

厄瓜多政府已將派駐英國的大使解職,引發對滯留於該外交使館的朱利安.阿山吉的未來的猜測。

The 47-year-old founder of WikiLeaks moved into the Ecuadorian Embassy in central London in 2012 while wanted for questioning over sexual assault allegations in Sweden. Assange maintained his innocence and claimed the charges were nothing more than an attempt to extradite him to the United States.

這名47歲的爆料網站「維基解密」創辦人2012年時因在瑞典被控性侵而遭通緝以便接受偵訊時,搬進位於(英國)倫敦市中心的厄瓜多大使館。阿山吉堅稱無辜,並稱這些指控不過是企圖要將他引渡到美國。

Ambassador Carlos Abad Ortiz was forced to leave his post, according to an executive decree signed by Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno and published Wednesday. The envoy had been in charge of the diplomatic mission since 2015 and had been an influential figure regarding Assange’s future.

根據厄瓜多總統利寧.莫雷諾簽署、週三(譯註:2018年11月21日)發布的一項行政命令,(厄瓜多駐英國)大使卡羅斯.阿貝德.歐提茲被迫去職。歐提茲自2015年起帶領厄國駐英外交使節團,在攸關阿山吉的未來的決策上具有舉足輕重的影響力。
