Ecuador’s embassy in the United Kingdom revealed on Tuesday (18) that was responsible for cutting on Saturday (15), access the founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange, the internet . As serve for the country was not involved in any way with the results of the United States elections, since Assange is secured in place for four years.
“The government of Ecuador respects the principle of non-intervention in the affairs of other countries,” said the agency in a statement. “He does not interfere in foreign elections or support a particular candidate.” As a result, the Ecuadorian government decided to suspend access to some private communications at the embassy.
WikiLeaks blamed the US Secretary of State, John Kerry, to ask Ecuador to cut Assange access to the World Wide Web. But the State Department revealed that it was not that. “It’s not true. He did not ask that,” said spokesman Mark Toner. “We have no involvement of any type, with Mr. blocking access attempts Assange internet.”
Ecuador argues that the decision was unilateral and corroborates the fact that it was not pressed by any nation to accomplish the feat. It just points out that while Assange was no internet, WikiLeaks has not been unable to conduct its investigations.
Assange and the US
The founder of WikiLeaks had promised to release a series of e-mails stolen from an aide to Hillary Clinton, a candidate for the US presidency, which could hurt their victory chances . And in fact, WikiLeaks has never stopped to report such types of documents, regardless of Assange is connected or not to the web.
But the US government suspects that WikiLeaks is helping hackers linked to the government of Russia to influence the results of the presidential elections. Even now there is a strong rumor circulating on the Internet about White House and the CIA are in favor of a cyberwar initiated by the US against Russia precisely because of the elections.
WikiLeaks never gave names to their sources, but Assange has denied any attempt to sabotage the Clinton campaign.
