Ecuador's president says Assange tried to use its embassy to spy

Ecuador's president says Assange tried to use its embassy to spy”

Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno withdrew Assange's political asylum this week, opening the way for his seizure by British police.

Parents across the world would be cursing at the sight of a skateboard being used inside the house.

"It's really important that we demonstrate our solidarity with Julian Assange..."

Wearing a tank-top and shorts, Assange tries twice to build momentum before losing his balance and falling off his board.

Moreno insisted it was Assange's actions against other democratic countries, taken while he lived in Ecuador's embassy for seven years, that had led to the eviction.

Mr Moreno, who became president in 2017, said his nation's previous government provided facilities within the embassy "to interfere in processes of other states".

Romo admitted that Assage's mental and physical state had deteriorated during his long spell holed up at at the embassy, with his increasingly erratic behaviour damaging relations with staff in the building.

Assange skateboarded inside the embassy to "kill time", El País said, citing security guards at the embassy. Assange's guests finally left after the ambassador reportedly arrived in the early hours of the morning.

"I think the first thing to say is Ecuador has been making some pretty outrageous allegations over the past few days to justify what was an unlawful and extraordinary act in allowing British police to come inside an embassy".

"I've been visiting him for the last seven years".

The comments in an interview with The Guardian newspaper show the degradation of Assange's relationship with Ecuador, which allowed him to stay in the London embassy for almost seven years.

Why was Julian Assange arrested?

In an interview with The Guardian, Moreno said Assange's actions "violate asylum conditions" and the country's decision to evict him was "not abitrary but based on global law".

Should Stockholm make a request to extradite Assange, the UK government will have to consider whether this should be done before or after that of the United States, where the 47-year-old is fighting a U.S. extradition warrant relating to the release by WikiLeaks of a huge cache of official documents.

Assange is being held at Belmarsh Prison in London and is now expected to fight extradition to the U.S. over an allegation that he conspired with former army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to break into a classified government computer.

Assange, who appeared much older when he emerged from the embassy than when before he sought refuge there in August 2012 - perhaps owing partly to the presence of a lengthy, white beard - is in custody at Belmarsh Prison in southeast London awaiting sentencing in Britain for skipping bail to avoid being sent to Sweden as part of an investigation of a rape allegation.
