Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa says a Swedish prosecutor will interview Wikileaks founder Julian Assange inside the South American country’s embassy in London.

Assange has been holed up at the mission for four years since Swedish officials sought to question him over sexual assault allegations. He denies the charges.

Correa said Wednesday that the questioning will occur in the next few weeks with an Ecuadorean prosecutor present, but did not say exactly when.

The document archive website Wikileaks has published anonymous submissions of huge dumps of documents over the past decade.
