Ecuador: No set date for Assange to have access to internet

Ecuador's foreign minister says there's no set date for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to regain access to the internet at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London where he has been in asylum since 2012.

Maria Fernandez Espinosa said Monday that Assange hasn't complied with his agreement to avoid intervening in the politics of other countries. "So for the time being, he is not allowed to have access to the internet."

Ecuador's government cut Assange's internet connection in March after social media posts decrying the arrest of a Catalan separatist politician.

Ecuador gave Assange asylum to avoid extradition to Sweden for investigation of sex-related claims. Sweden dropped the case, but Assange remains subject to arrest in Britain for jumping bail. He also fears a possible U.S. extradition request.
