Assange ... listed key areas of the Ecuadorian constitution to protest the government’s gag order against him:

“Article 16.2, which says “all persons have the right to universal access to information and communication technologies.”

Article 66.2, which says “the following rights of persons are guaranteed: the right to voice one’s opinion and to express one’s thinking freely in all its forms and manifestations”.

Article 20, which says “the State shall guarantee the confidentiality of journalists’ sources.”

Article 41, which says “persons who have been granted asylum or sanctuary shall benefit from special protection, guaranteeing the full exercise of their rights” and that “the State shall respect and guarantee the principle of non-return,” meaning that refugees and asylum-claimants cannot be expelled.

Article 79, which says “in no case shall the extradition of an Ecuadorian be granted.”(Assange became an Ecuadorian citizen in 2017).”
