Ecuador said that the WikiLeaks founder - who has been holed up in its London embassy since 2012 - had broken a 2017 agreement by disputing the UK's claim that Russian Federation poisoned former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter on March 4.
As part of an agreement between Mr Assange and the Ecuadorean government, he is not permitted to send any messages that could interfere with the South American nation's relations with other countries.
Assange compared the decision to the one made by Nazi Germany when it arrested Catalan leader Lluis Companys and handed him over to the regime of Spanish dictator Francisco Franco. He has hidden away claiming he could be extradited to the United States to face charges over WikiLeaks revelations, but he is also wanted by British police for skipping bail.
