Since late October, concerns have been growing about WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange’s safety.
WikiLeaks, in a tweet, wrote: “Please stop asking us for ‘proof of life’. We do not control Assange’s physical environment or internet connection. @MashiRafael does,” referring to Rafael Correa, the president of Ecuador.
Assange, 45, has been holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London for more than four years, and he’s staying there out of fear that he might be extradited to the United States for his WikiLeaks-related activities.
There were rumors that Assange’s Internet access had been compromised after WikiLeaks was releasing emails sourced from Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.
