By Alessandra Prentice andEduardo GarciaLONDON/QUITO| Thu Aug 16,2012 11:02am EDT(Reuters) - Ecuador has grantedpolitical asylum to WikiLeaks'founder Julian Assange, ForeignMinister Ricardo Patino said onThursday, a day after the Britishgovernment threatened to stormthe Ecuadorean embassy inLondon to arrest the formerhacker.Britain has said it is determinedto extradite him to Sweden, wherehe is accused of rape and sexualassault, but Assange fears he willultimately be sent to the UnitedStates which is furious that hisWikiLeaks website has leakedhundreds of thousands of secretU.S. diplomatic and militarycables.Ecuador's decision is likely todeepen a political dispute overAssange's extradition with Britain,which said it was "disappointed"with the ruling, and sets the stagefor possible further confrontationbetween the two countries.Patino said Ecuador feared forthe safety of the Australian, whohad lodged an asylum requestwith President Rafael Correa, aself-declared enemy of "corrupt"media and U.S. "imperialism"."Ecuador has decided to grantpolitical asylum to Julian Assangefollowing the request sent to thePresident," Patino told a newsconference in Quito.Patino said Assange's extraditionto a third country without properguarantees was probable, and thatlegal evidence showed he wouldnot get a fair trial if eventuallytransferred to the United States."This is a sovereign decisionprotected by international law. Itmakes no sense to surmise thatthis implies a breaking of relations (with Britain)," Patinoadded.Assange has been holed up insideEcuador's embassy in centralLondon for eight weeks since helost a legal battle to avoidextradition to Sweden.Even after Thursday's decisionhis fate is still far from clear:Britain has promised to extraditehim and the removal of theEcuadorean embassy's diplomaticstatus would expose him toimmediate arrest by the Britishauthorities."We are disappointed," a ForeignOffice spokesman said."Under UK law, with Mr Assangehaving exhausted all options of appeal, the British authorities areunder a binding obligation toextradite him to Sweden.
