Ecuador says it cut WikiLeaks founder’s internet access to prevent U.S. election interference
Ecuador’s embassy in the U.K. says it alone was responsible for cutting WikiLeak’s founder Julian Assange’s internet connection, stating that the country doesn’t want to interfere with the U.S. elections.
“The government of Ecuador respects the principle of non-intervention in the affairs of other countries,” it said in a Tuesday statement. “It does not interfere in external electoral processes or support a particular candidate.”
As result, the government has temporarily cut access to some private communications at the embassy, where Assange has resided for four years.
