Tweet which lost Assange internet and visitor access

“In 1940 the elected president of Catalonia was captured by the Gestapo, at the request of Spain, delivered to them and executed. Today, German police have arrested the elected president of Catalonia at the request of Spain, to be extradited.”

Wikileaks has confirmed that Ecuador demanded Julian Assange delete the above tweet.

Wikileaks editor @julianassange has been gagged and isolated by order of Ecuador’s new president @Lenin Moreno. He cannot tweet, speak to the press, recieve visitors or make telephone calls. Ecuador demanded that he remove the following Tweet

The amount of diplomatic pressure being put on Ecuador is a testament to the potential that the USA has a secret warrant out for his arrest, a terrifying prospect.
