The Equadorian government revoked his internet and phone access in March after he breached an agreement “not to issue messages that might interfere with other states”.
Only members of his legal team have been allowed to visit during this period.
However, Wikileaks yesterday announced that his “isolation regime” was over after talks between UN officials and Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno on Friday.
The UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi and UN Special Rapporteur for Freedom of Expression David Kaye met with President Moreno and agreed to partially alleviate the ban on communications.
Editor-in-chief of Wikileaks Kristin Hrafnsson said: “It is positive that, through UN intervention, Ecuador has partly ended the isolation of Mr Assange although it is of grave concern that his freedom to express his opinions is still limited.
“The UN has already declared Mr Assange a victim of arbitrary detention.
“This unacceptable situation must end.
“The UK Government must abide by the UN’s ruling and guarantee that he can leave the embassy without the threat of extradition to the United States.”
