Actually, they say he has asylum at the Ecuadorian embassy. Ergo he is not gone from those premises, has not been kicked out, removed, smuggled away
with a bag over his head, or by other means found himself elsewhere. In order that their responsibilities where non-interference are concerned are
met, the Embassy has elected to prevent Mr Assange from using the net until the end of the election process, but have not prevented Wikileaks from
doing its normal business, since Mr Assange does not publish direct from there anyway, and is not running a one man show.
Wikileaks is an organisation comprised of many people, from contributors to editors, fact checkers and researchers. It will continue to perform its
necessary, vital functions perfectly well without his having access to the Internet, and he will return to the web once the election is over.
Seems pretty cut and dry to me.
