Three years on from the day WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was forced into the Ecuadorian embassy in London seeking political asylum, security remains as high as ever, Friday. According to a Metropolitan Police estimate, the cost of securing Assange's stay in London currently stands at around £11.1m including £6.5m (€9.1) spent paying officers who may have had other engagements and £2.7m (€3.8) on 'additional costs' such as overtime. Assange was due to meet Sweden's Deputy Prosecutor Ingrid Isgren and quizzed over allegations of rape, sexual molestation and illegal coercion, but the meeting was cancelled on Wednesday because Ecuadorian officials did not grant permission for prosecutors to enter the embassy. Some reports indicate that Isgren remains in London, but Assange purportedly said that Ecuador's decision making process could take weeks. Assange recently spoke about the release of 17 secret documents during a video conference in the European Parliament in Brussels on Thursday June, 4. The documents are related to the ongoing TiSA (Trade in Services Agreement) negotiations by online whistle-blower groups and a massive trade agreement between the US, Europe and various multinationals involving 75 percent of the European economy.
