Ecuador cuts Julian Assange's internet access after 'interference'

Ecuador Cuts Off Julian Assange's Outside Communication. Here's Why

aECUADOR has stripped WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange of his internet connection after he discussed issues which the government claims could damage the country's diplomatic relations on social media.Mr Assange has been living in the Ecuadorean embassy in London since June 2012.

They added that the Ecuador government had only recently granted Mr Assange citizenship, saying it must have been "leaned on mercilessly" to stop attempting to provide a diplomatic route to safety and even drive the WikiLeaks founder out of the embassy.

"Assange's behavior, with his messages on social networks, puts good relations with the United Kingdom, the European Union and other nations at risk", Ecuador President Lenin Moreno's office said in a statement announcing the decision to cut Assange's internet access.

The embassy reportedly installed electronic jammers to block all communications on its premises hours after an individual representing Assange's interests was informed of "strong discomfort and concern that his declarations have caused in Ecuador's government", the source told RT.

Staub was a six-time All-Star and the only player in major league history to have at least 500 hits with four different teams. He was initially admitted with pneumonia, dehydration and an infection and had spent the last eight weeks in the hospital.

In a statement, the Quito authorities explained that Assange's recent posts jeopardise Ecuador's good relations with nations throughout Europe which led to the interrution of his internet access "in order to prevent any potential harm".

The embassy chose to cut off Assange's internet connection after breaking a promise he made.

Last year, Sweden announced that it was dropping the rape investigation.

Ecuador suspended his internet access in 2016 after a WikiLeaks dump targeting Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. Sweden eventually dropped the charges against him, but if he leaves the embassy he could be arrested by British authorities for jumping bail. "So why is there a warrant for my arrest?"

Accumulations of several centimetres are possible, especially over hills, and there is a chance of drifting in strong winds. High snow drifts loomed over many roads including those alongside Pottal Pool Road on the Chase.

He also chimed in a decision by the United States and more than a dozen European nations to kick out Russian diplomats on Monday following Moscow's alleged poisoning of an ex-spy in Britain.

The country says that Assange's behavior could jeopardize its relationship with other countries, though it doesn't point toward any specific tweet as the reason for its decision.

British Foreign Office Minister Alan Duncan described Assange on Tuesday as a "miserable little worm" who should leave the embassy and give himself up to British justice.

Assange, who after six years in confinement is reportedly in ailing health, was granted asylum by former president Rafael Correa.

Americans on Tuesday night were reintroduced to the Conners, a blue collar family living in the fictional IL town of Lanford. The guest who, without hesitation, checked Williams on her own show is pro-Trump actress Roseanne Barr .

Moreno issued a warning reminding Assange not to meddle in politics - he has also called Assange a hacker.
