The move to start legal proceedings comes just days after Ecuador issued Assange with a list of rules to obey if he wanted to continue living in the embassy.
Lawyers for the Wikileaks founder said yesterday that they would begin legal action against Ecuador over an alleged violation of Mr Assange's "fundamental rights and freedoms".
WikiLeaks, the organisation founded by Mr Assange that published the military documents, has sent its lawyer Baltasar Garzon to Ecuador to launch the case. It is due to be heard in a domestic court next week.
Wikileaks said the country's government had threatened to remove the protection Mr Assange has had since being granted political asylum.
It said Ecuador's government had refused to allow a visit by Human Rights Watch's general counsel Dinah PoKempner and stopped several meetings with Assange's lawyers.
In a statement, Wikileaks said: "Ecuador's measures against Julian Assange have been widely condemned by the human rights community".

"The protocol makes Assange's political asylum contingent on censoring his freedom of opinion, speech and association", the organization continued.
The WikiLeaks Twitter account stated on Thursday that "after U.S. pressure", moves had accelerated to grant Assange Ecuadorian citizenship.
