Ecuador says it cut Assange in­ter­net link

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Ecuador said it had cut the in­ter­net ac­cess of Wik­iLeaks founder Ju­lian Assange, who is holed up at its London em­bassy, due to leaks by the an­ti­se­crecy web­site that could im­pact the US elec­tion. Wik­iLeaks has in re­cent weeks pub­lished a dam­ag­ing trove of hacked emails from Hil­lary Clin­ton’s pres­i­den­tial cam­paign, which ac­cuses it of try­ing to sway the elec­tion in favour of Repub­li­can Don­ald Trump. “The govern­ment of Ecuador 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,” the Ecuado­ran for­eign min­istry said.
