The government of Ecuador says it disconnected the internet connection used by Julian Assange after WikiLeaks “published a wealth of documents, impacting on the US election campaign.”
Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, has been living in the Ecuadorian embassy in London since 2012, under granted political asylum.
“The Government of Ecuador respects the principle of non-intervention in the internal affairs of other states,” the official statement reads. “It does not interfere in external electoral processes, nor does it favor any particular candidate.”
“Ecuador’s foreign policy responds to sovereign decisions alone and does not yield to pressure from other states,” the statement concluded.
