WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange may be handed over to British authorities very soon, according to reports.
Ecuador is reportedly in talks to eject him from its embassy in London in the coming weeks or days.
Assange has been holed-up in the embassy since 2012, after he fled from Sweden over rape accusations.
While the investigation regarding those charges has since been closed, he still faces British charges over fleeing bail.
Investigators have also called for his extradition to the U.S. over his release of classified government documents and leaked DNC emails.
WikiLeaks came under fire after releasing a set of alleged CIA hacking codes the agency used to hack everything from cell phones to internet connected smart TV’s.
