Assange to Sue Ecuador Over Violating His Rights, 'Gagging' Him

  • Julian Assange is launching legal action against the government of Ecuador

The move to start legal proceedings comes just days after Ecuador issued Assange with a list of rules to obey if he wanted to continue living in the embassy.

Lawyers for the Wikileaks founder said yesterday that they would begin legal action against Ecuador over an alleged violation of Mr Assange's "fundamental rights and freedoms".

WikiLeaks, the organisation founded by Mr Assange that published the military documents, has sent its lawyer Baltasar Garzon to Ecuador to launch the case. It is due to be heard in a domestic court next week.

Wikileaks said the country's government had threatened to remove the protection Mr Assange has had since being granted political asylum.

It said Ecuador's government had refused to allow a visit by Human Rights Watch's general counsel Dinah PoKempner and stopped several meetings with Assange's lawyers.

In a statement, Wikileaks said: "Ecuador's measures against Julian Assange have been widely condemned by the human rights community".

Julian Assange remains inside the Ecuadorian embassy.

The embassy cut Assange's internet access in 2018 following his comments on the Skripal poisoning case.

He was given a set of house rules by the London embassy this week, including taking better care of his cat.

It goes on to state that the protocol requires journalists, lawyers, and anyone else seeking to see Assange to "disclose private or political details such as their social media usernames, the serial numbers and IMEI codes of their phones and tablets with Ecuador-which the Protocol says the government may "share with other agencies". "The protocol makes Assange's political asylum contingent on censoring his freedom of opinion, speech and association", the organization continued.

The WikiLeaks Twitter account stated on Thursday that "after U.S. pressure", moves had accelerated to grant Assange Ecuadorian citizenship.

Ecuador this month created the new protocol governing the Australian's stay at the embassy. "His citizenship status is a barrier to rendering him to another state as article 79 of Ecuador's constitution forbids extradition of citizens", it added.
