WikiLeaks Says Julian Assange’s Internet Access Has Been Cut by “State Party”
WikiLeaks says that founder Julian Assange’s internet access has been cut by an unidentified state actor. Few other details were immediately available.
Assange has been up holed up at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London for more than four years after skipping bail to avoid being extradited over sex crimes allegations.
The cramped quarters haven’t prevented the Australian transparency activist from working and WikiLeaks continues to deliver scoops, includingfor president as the U.S. election enters its final stretch.
Calls, texts and emails left with WikiLeaks weren’t immediately returned Monday. A woman who picked up the phone at the embassy said: “I cannot disclose any information.”
An email to Ecuador’s ambassador wasn’t immediately answered. London’s Metropolitan Police declined comment.
