In the wake of Wikileaks publishing of email archives from Hillary Clinton s campaign manager John Podesta, the global transparency organization is now claiming that its founder Julian Assange is being denied internet access by a state party .
Assange is currently holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, as he has been since August 2012 when he was granted asylum there by the South American nation.
Wikileaks hasn t yet said exactly who it suspects to be behind the disruption of Assange s internet connectivity, but has stated that it s activated contingency plans in response.
Julian Assange's internet link has been intentionally severed by a state party.
We have activated the appropriate contingency plans.
