Citing an alleged breach of an agreement to refrain from interfering in other states' affairs, the Ecuadorian government has cut off Julian Assange's internet access preventing his communication with the outside world.
London — (RT) The Ecuadorian government has suspended Julian Assange's communication privileges with the outside world. The move was sparked by Assange's alleged breach of an agreement to refrain from interfering in other states' affairs.
The Ecuadorian government specifically cited Assange's activity on social media, claiming that his recent posts may have jeopardized Ecuador's relationship with the UK, the EU and other nations.
"The action was taken following Assange's breach of a written agreement signed with the Ecuadorian government at the end of 2017, in which he vowed not to send messages interfering in the affairs of other sovereign states," the government said in a statement Wednesday. "The Executive remains open to the possibility of further sanctions in cases of future breaches of the agreements by Assange."
