"Mention of the cat is degrading": Assange sues over Ecuador terms

Among the conditions imposed by the Ecuadorian government, the embassy would decide who could visit Assange and when, while restricting his ability to comment on political issues. It also orders him to take proper care of his cat or risk having it handed to a shelter.

“Mention of the cat is degrading,” Garzon said, adding that Assange is ill due to his prolonged confinement in the embassy. He still lacks access to the internet, his lawyer said.
