The US establishment is panicking over the release of Clinton’s emails while Ecuador is afraid its UK embassy may lose internet access, said Robert Steele, CEO of Earth Intelligence Network, on Ecuador’s decision to cut Julian Assange’s web access.
It is unlikely that Ecuador, supporting whistleblower Julian Assange, deprived him from the opportunity to use internet, says Peter Van Buren, former officer, US State Department's Foreign Service. The countries like the US have much more reasons for that, he added.
Through its publishing activities WikiLeaks allowed people to get recompense for violations of their rights, said Julian Assange’s attorney Melinda Taylor. It had a fundamental impact on people’s right to know what is happening in the world, she added.
As Julian Assange enters his fourth year of self-imposed detention at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London, Melinda Taylor, part of his legal team, says prosecutors must realize that the cost of keeping Assange in detention outweighs the need to release him.
The mainstream media has fallen in line with the governments of the UK and Sweden to dispute the legitimacy and significance of the decision by the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention in favor of Julian Assange, but their claims don’t stack up.
