The Ecuadorian government has had it up to here with Julian Assange.
The government has laid out strict house rules for Assange to follow or risk losing his diplomatic asylum, according to a Tuesday Guardian report.
They range from the important — don’t post political comments online — to the mundane — clean your bathroom and feed your cat.
“It’s virtually a prison regime,” Assange lawyer Carlos Poveda told the Guardian. “This new regime goes against his basic human dignity as an asylee.”
Poveda reportedly added that Assange could not understand the government’s directives, as they were written in Spanish, and currently does not have access to the internet.
Per the Guardian, the government also stated that come December, Assange will be on his own to pay for food and laundry.
