Julian Assange's war of words with Ecuadorian government

Adjust Comment Print

On Saturday, an Ecuadorean judge ordered a Swedish citizen close to Assange jailed pending trial for alleged involvement in hacking government computer systems.

"We can not allow our house, the house that opened its doors, to become a center for spying". "Our decision is not arbitrary but is based on worldwide law".

Moreno is blaming WikiLeaks for the damning set of photos that also include pics of the president and his wife on lavish European vacations.

Real did not attribute the hacking attempts to any group in particular, and said it would be hard to identify the hackers.

"Any attempt to destabilize is a reprehensible act for Ecuador, because we are a sovereign nation and respectful of the politics of each country", Moreno told the newspaper in an email.

U.S. House approves net neutrality bill but legislation faces long odds
The Trump administration said the bill would "return to the heavy-handed regulatory approach of the previous administration". In the meantime, a slew of state governments began writing and implementing net neutrality protections of their own.

In the interview, the foreign minister said that a Swedish citizen who lived in the capital of Quito and visited Assange multiple times in London was arrested recently "because there is suspicion about his possible participation in criminal activities in Ecuador, related to information technology".

The U.S. indictment, originally issued in secret by an Alexandria, Virginia-based grand jury in March 2018, said Assange in March 2010 engaged in a conspiracy to help Manning crack a password for a classified U.S. government network.

Julian Assange works on a new hobby while holed up in the Ecuadorean embassy in London.

But his lawyer, Jennifer Robinson, disputed the allegations when she appeared on Sky's On Sunday.

"I think the first thing to say is Ecuador has been making some pretty outrageous allegations over the past few days to justify what was an unlawful and extraordinary act in allowing British police to come inside an embassy", Robinson said.

Moreno's predecessor, Rafael Correa, called the decision to release Assange to authorities a "crime that humanity will never forget". It follows the unsealing last week of a USA indictment charging Assange with conspiring with Manning to gain access to a government computer as part of one of the largest compromises of classified information in US history.

Extradition to the United States would set "a unsafe precedent" for journalists worldwide, said Miranda, adding: "this threatens to criminalise journalism globally".

The WikiLeaks founder is in custody awaiting sentencing for breaching his British bail conditions in 2012 by seeking refuge in Ecuador's London embassy to avoid extradition to Sweden. Assange traveled to Britain, where a court ruled in 2012 to extradite him to Sweden.

On Thursday, the infamous Wikileaks founder was kicked out of the embassy in London that has been his home for several years.
