- Julian Assange has been living at the embassy in London since June 2012
- Swedish authorities have dropped their investigation into Mr Assange
- But he believes he will be extradited to the United States for questioning over the activities of WikiLeaks if he leaves the building
Ecuador’s government is cutting off WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s communications outside the nation’s London embassy.
Officials announced on Wednesday they were taking the measure in response to Mr Assange’s recent activity on social media.
As part of an agreement between Mr Assange and the Ecuadorean government, he is not permitted to send any messages that could interfere with the South American nation’s relations with other countries.
He has been living at the embassy since June 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden to face questioning over allegations of sex crimes, which he always denied.
