According to the Swedish prosecutor's office, the request to question Assange at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London was filed under a bilateral Sweden-Ecuador agreement on legal cooperation, signed in late 2015.

Assange Lawyer Declines to Speculate on Questioning Schedule
STOCKHOLM (Sputnik) — The Swedish prosecutor's office has filed a request with the state prosecutor's office in Ecuador for permission to question the WikiLeaks whistleblowing website founder, Julian Assange, at the Ecuador Embassy in London, Swedish prosecutors said in a statement Wednesday.

"The prosecutor has sent a request to question Assange at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. The letter has recently been sent from the Ministry of Justice to the public prosecutor's office in Ecuador. It is hard to say when a reply will be received," the statement reads.

Assange launched the WikiLeaks website in 2006. He has been residing at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since 2012, out of fear of being extradited, first to Sweden where he has been accused of sexual assault, and ultimately to the United States where he could face espionage charges for publishing secret documents through his website.
