Swedish interrogators will question WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London on October 17, the Ecuadorian Public Prosecutor’s Office announced Monday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The interrogation is scheduled for 10 a.m. local time (9:00GMT). It will be attended by Sweden’s chief prosecutor Ingrid Isgren and police interrogator Cecilia Redell.

"Further proceedings will depend on what information Assange will provide," the statement on the Ecuadorian prosecution’s website read.

Assange has been residing at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since 2012 for fear of being extradited to Sweden where he has been accused of rape.

He denies the allegations, claiming they are a ruse organized by Washington to hand him over to the United States where he is wanted for leaking thousands of top-secret military documents and embassy cables detailing US war crimes in Iraq.

A UN body, the working group on arbitrary detention (WGAD), ruled last February that Assange's de factor incarceration was unlawful. The whistleblower lodged an appeal with a Swedish court on August 9, calling on the country to comply with the UN ruling.
