Julian Assange on the balcony of the Ecuadorian embassy in London.
It's that lack of cleanliness, among other things, that fueled Ecuador's recent attempts to end his five-year standoff at the Knightsbridge embassy, the International Business Times reported. The passport was reportedly granted to him on December 12.

The passport could obtain his first step to obtaining diplomatic immunity, as Ecuador wants to resolve Assange's indefinite embassy stay.
It is still no guarantee, however Assange has been living inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London since 2012, when he was accused of sexual assault in Sweden. The case in Sweden was dropped after prosecutors questioned him at the embassy.
When Julian Assange, mastermind behind Wikileaks, leaked tens of thousands of classified documents revealing the United States government's false and misleading information about its war in Afghanistan his life has been in jeopardy.
The British government continued its hard-line stance against Assange, with a Foreign Office spokesperson saying that the only solution was for Assange to "face justice".
