The Ecuadorian government will “partly restore” Wikileaks publisher Julian Assange’s internet access and other communication abilities after it cut him off in March. ITV reports the government denied Assange access to internet, phones, or visitors (other than his legal team) because he violated a written commitment not to give “opinions on the politics of friendly nations like Spain or the United States.” Assange’s isolation will come to an end after two U.N. officials met with Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno on Friday, Wikileaks said in a statement. “It is positive that through UN intervention Ecuador has partly ended the isolation of Mr Assange although it is of grave concern that his freedom to express his opinions is still limited,” the website’s editor-in-chief Kristinn Hrafnsson wrote. Assange has lived in the embassy for over six years where he has been given political asylum. He reportedly believes that if he leaves the embassy, he will be arrested and extradited to the U.S. for questioning for his WikiLeaks activities.
