Wikileaks and Assange's defense team say they are trying to block the effort, telling The Guardian and other media outlets that neither Assange's lawyers nor independent United Nations watchdogs have been asked to be present at the turnover of Assange's belongings, and that the effort by Ecuadorian officials to supply the us with Assange's personal effects amounts to an illegal search and seizure.
It goes on to state that it is an "an aggravating circumstance" that he allegedly did not use protection despite being aware that "a condom was the plaintiff's express will and prerequisite for sexual intercourse". Assange has denied wrongdoing, claiming the allegations were politically motivated and that the sex was consensual. WikiLeaks' Editor-in-Chief Kristinn Hrafnsson has previously said of Sweden's case, "Since Julian Assange was arrested on 11 April 2019 there has been considerable political pressure on Sweden to reopen their investigation, but there has always been political pressure surrounding this case".

"In the event of a conflict between a European Arrest Warrant and a request for extradition from the US, UK authorities will decide on the order of priority", Perrson said. Reports also indicate the Ecuador may be willing to back the United States in its battle to extradite Assange, so that Assange can stand trial in the US, ostensibly for facilitating espionage and publishing state secrets.
