Ecuador partly restores internet access for WikiLeaks founder Assange

Julian Assange has been living in Ecuador's embassy for more than six years. AP

Ecuador's embassy in London says Julian Assange can have his Internet access restored, but if he wants to carry on staying under their roof, he's going to have to behave himself-and do his chores.

In one instance, the document orders Assange to keep the bathroom clean.

The section headed "Communications" stated that Assange would be liable for any additional Wi-Fi costs and that he may only use his own devices - barring exceptional cases and only with written permission from the Head of the Diplomatic Mission.

The cat - which was given to Mr Assange by his children - often appears at the embassy window to watch the journalists gathered outside.

While stating that he is allowed to exercise his "right of communication and freedom of expression", a nine-page document forbids the journalist from engaging in political activity or doing anything to interfere in the affairs of other states, among other stipulations.

The article made a decision to focus on the cat rather than the larger story: famed-online activist Assange being reportedly given back his access to the internet.

The alleged plot involved smuggling the WikiLeaks founder in a diplomatic vehicle from the Ecuadorian embassy and moving him to another country by boat or plane.

But the British government refused to give him diplomatic status so the plan was cancelled.

Moreno on Wednesday said that he was negotiating with Britain to find a way for Assange to leave the embassy without being arrested.

Mr Assange has not left the Ecuadorian embassy for six years after losing a legal battle against extradition to Sweden over rape and sexual assault allegations.

Sweden dropped the case against Assange a year ago but he remains subject to arrest in the United Kingdom for jumping bail.

He alleges that the accusations were politically motivated and could lead to him being extradited to the United States over the publication of secret U.S. military documents and diplomatic cables in 2010.
