Timing of IMF loan to Ecuador
NOTICE ARCHIVE - 19/04/2019

April 2019, Ecuador expelled Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, from its embassy in London. He had been living there with asylum since 2012, fearing extradition to the United States. Assange helped leaked top secret information exposing US war crimes in the Middle East. Now he will be extradited to the “Land of the Free” to face charges related to computer hacking.


The timing of Ecuador's revocation of his asylum raises some suspicions. Less than two months before Ecuador expelled Julian Assange from its embassy, it secured a $4.2 billion dollar loan from the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The last time the IMF gave a loan to Ecuador was 2016. That was only $364 million, and it was to help them rebuild after a devastating earthquake.


The USA is the largest shareholder in the IMF (and is known to use cash to exert international pressure). The timing seems a little too perfect to be a coincidence.
