WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange lost his internet access and visitor privileges Wednesday at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.
In a statement from the Ecuadorian government, Assange is accused of breaching a written commitment signed at the end of 2017 concerning interference with other nations.
“The Government of Ecuador warns that the behavior of Assange, with its messages through social networks, puts at risk the good relations that the country maintains with the United Kingdom, with the rest of the States of the European Union and other nations,” a translated section of the announcement says.
The statement, which claims the action is intended to “prevent potential damage,” does not detail how long Assange’s privileges will be revoked.
