WikiLeaks: Assange’s Internet ‘Intentionally Severed’ by State PartyAccording to a statement released at 12:33 a.m., the “appropriate contingency plans” were taken shortly after.
The announcement came only hours after three cryptographic hashes, used in verifying the integrity of data, were also sent out on WikiLeaks’ Twitter account.
The hashes – which concern US Secretary of State John Kerry, Ecuador and the UK’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office – led to widespread speculation over potential issues with Assange’s asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy in London.
The police refused to comment on the incident and the embassy was also quiet for a very long time until an inside source is claiming now that Ecuador is maintaining their political asylum for Assange that he was granted back in 2012.
Ecuador Foreign Ministry source: "Ecuador will continue to protect Julian Assange and uphold the political asylum granted to him in 2012."
