Ecuador president says Assange used London embassy for 'spying'

Ecuadorean President Lenin Moreno

Two left-wing German lawmakers, Heike Hansel and Sevim Dagdelen, along with Spanish MEP Ana Miranda were expected in London on Monday when they were originally set to meet Assange at the embassy.

Ecuador's attempted character assassination of whistleblower Julian Assange stepped up since his arrest last week, with officials offering various excuses to justify his expulsion - and the media has been eagerly lapping it up.

"The key issue at the moment is U.S. extradition, which we have warned about for many years", she added. But as entertainment has taken over what used to be television news, viewers are being handed partisan opinions about Assange that ignore WikiLeaks' revelations of prima facie evidence of USA war crimes, and the corruption of dozens of governments around the world.

The footage also shows Assange fighting with a security guard in the embassy, a sign of the increased tensions between Assange and his hosts during his nearly seven-year stint.

An image tweeted by WikiLeaks on May 9, 2016, shows founder Julian Assange holding a kitten given to him by his children to keep him company where he remains holed up in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London.

Assange has had "a very hard time" since Moreno took office in Ecuador in 2017, Robinson said.

Assange's relationship with his hosts collapsed after Ecuador accused him of leaking information about Moreno's personal life. Guards told the newspaper that he would give TV interviews while only wearing underwear on his bottom half, and he would leave the bathroom so messy that guards took photos and complained about it to the embassy.

Assange took refuge at the embassy after losing his battle against extradition to Sweden, where he faced allegations including rape.

He was arrested at the embassy on Thursday after Ecuador revoked his asylum, and is now also fighting a United States extradition warrant relating to the release by WikiLeaks of a huge cache of official documents.

Why was Julian Assange arrested?

The president also made references to Assange's apparently poor hygiene, which include Assange "putting faeces on the walls". Assange is being held at Belmarsh Prison in London and is now expected to fight extradition to the United States over an allegation that he conspired with former army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to break into a classified government computer.

He said that Assange "maintained constant improper hygienic behaviour throughout his stay".
