Assange expects to be in Ecuadorian embassy 'for up to a year'

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange expects to wait up to a year for a deal to free him from Ecuador's embassy in London.

I think the situation will be solved through diplomacy. The Swedish government could drop the case. I think this is the most likely scenario.

Maybe after a thorough investigation of what happened they could drop the case.

I think this will be solved in between six and 12 months, that's what I estimate.
