Ecuador’s Foreign Relations Ministry said Wednesday that Mr.Assangehad violated a written agreement with Ecuador preventing him to give opinion in political affairs of other nations.“The government of Ecuador warns that Assange’s behavior, through his messages on social networks, put at risk the country’s good relations with the United Kingdom, the other states of the European Union, and other nations,” a statement from the government says. As of January, Assange is officially a citizen of the South American country.

He was first offered asylum in the embassy by Ecuador’s former President Rafael Correa. The WikiLeaks founder  Is been hiding in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for the past six years. His Internet was also cut off during October of 2016 in the lead up to the US presidential election. Last month, a British court ruled that the warrant for his arrest was still valid despite the fact that Sweden had suspended its investigation into sexual assault charges against the WikiLeaks founder. Assange fears extradition to the United States. It’s unclear how long Assange will have his internet cut off. The Executive also keeps open the way to the adoption of new measures in the face of breach of commitment by Assange,” the Ecuadorian statement said. The president of Ecuador, Lenin Moreno, has previously called Assange’s presence a “nuisance” and an “inherited problem.”
