[Ed. – Recall the backstory that Assange has been living in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for several years now. The WikiLeaks organization claims Kerry asked the Ecuadorians to cut Assange off — although not for the reason you might think.]
Wikileaks said Tuesday that Secretary of State John Kerry asked Ecuador to stop WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, from publishing leaked emails that could disrupt peace negotiations with a guerrilla group in Colombia.
Assange, who has been in refuge in Ecuador’s embassy in London for more than four years, saw his access to the internet cut over the weekend.
WikiLeaks blamed the U.S. government, saying Secretary of State John Kerry had requested the move.
“The John Kerry private meeting with Ecuador was made on the sidelines of the negotiations which took place principally on Sep 26 in Colombia,” WikiLeaks tweeted.
But the State Department rejected the allegation.
