BUT HIS ASYLUM STATUS REMAINS INTACT.
Having lived at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since 2012 when he was granted asylum by the nation, the founder of WikiLeaks recently said that he had lost internet access. Assange found himself cut off after his organisation published emails containing speeches Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton made to investment firm Goldman Sachs. In a statement, the Ecuadorian Government said it “...respects the principle of non-intervention in the internal affairs of other states. It does not interfere in external electoral processes, nor does it favour any particular candidate.” That said, it reaffirmed the asylum granted to Assange four years ago.
