Looks like Assange may go from the loving arms of the Ecuadorian Embassy to London's finest cell when he is evicted, which is now imminent.

Ecuador denies WikiLeaks claim it plans to release Julian Assange

The Ecuadorian government on Friday rejected claims by WikiLeaks that founder Julian Assange would be ousted from his sanctuary at the country's embassy in London "within hours to days."

Ecuador's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement released Friday that the allegation was "an attempt to stain the dignity of the country," according to an NBC News translation. Ecuador "has made significant expenditures to pay for his stay" and has "endured its rudeness," the ministry continued.

    Another way to look at it is that if Assange fails to keep his name out of the news, he gets forgotten by the public. It becomes relatively easier for a fortuitous "accident" or "suicide" to happen to someone like that.

    Dying would be very good way for him getting into news again.. Anyone who doesn't want that wouldn't want to kill him, even by "accident". Because nobody will believe even if it really was accident.
