Here are key dates in Julian Assange's extradition battle after Ecuador on Thursday announced it had granted the WikiLeaks founder citizenship.

Shortly before the 2016 United States election, WikiLeaks accused Ecuadorian officials in the London embassy of temporarily cutting off the former computer hacker's internet access for publishing an array of emails belonging to Democratic nominee Hilary Clinton's campaign in a bid to impact the vote. Although Swedish prosecutors have since dropped the charges, British police remain outside the embassy ready to arrest the WikiLeaks co-founder for breaking his 2012 bail conditions.

Moreno issued a warning reminding Assange not to meddle in politics. WikiLeaks said that by staying as long as he had in the embassy, he had served more than 14 times the maximum sentence under United Kingdom law.
