Ecuador cuts ties with Assange
LONDON, 28 July. - (ANA) - Ecuador has rescinded the citizenship of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
The nation’s justice system claimed that the Australian’s naturalisation letter had multiple inconsistencies and different signatures, and also cited unpaid fees and the possible alteration of documents, among other issues.
The 50-year-old has been in the high-security Belmarsh prison in London since he was arrested in 2019 for skipping bail seven years earlier during a separate legal battle. - (ANA) -
