Julian Assange in Embassy's Doghouse Over His Cat

Wednesday, 17 October 2018 12:59 PM

Julian Assange, Wikileaks founder, was formally ordered to steer clear of topics that could harm Ecuador's diplomatic interests and warned to look after his cat, according to a media report.

The nine-page memo published Monday by the Ecuadorean website Codigo Vidrio says Assange is prohibited from "interfering in the internal affairs of other states."

The document also orders Assange to keep the embassy clean, threatening to confiscate Assange's pet cat if he does not look after it.

The Associated Press could not immediately authenticate the document, but Codigo Vidrio has a track record of publishing inside material from within the London embassy. Messages left with Ecuador's Foreign Ministry and WikiLeaks representatives were not immediately returned.

Assange has been living at the embassy since 2012, when the Australian ex-hacker applied for asylum to avoid extradition to Sweden.

Ecuadorean government documents made public late Tuesday by Ecuadorean opposition lawmaker Paola Vintimilla have laid bare an unorthodox attempt to extricate Assange from his embassy hideaway in London by naming him as a diplomat to Moscow.
