Julian Assange hit embassy staff, says president of Ecuador

Julian Assange following his arrest

There's little concern either from Assange's fellow journalists that Ecuador was seemingly spying on him while inside the embassy.

Assange had been in the embassy since 2012, where tensions rose with staff as he was accused of poor hygiene and of riding a skateboard and kicking a ball to entertain himself.

A war of words has broken out between the Ecuadorian government and Wikileaks' founder Julian Assange.

Belmarsh has frequently been used in high-profile national security cases, including that of former Finsbury Park Mosque hate preacher Abu Hamza, who now resides in a U.S. "supermax" prison following extradition. The letter to Moreno is dated 10 April 2019 - a day before Assange was taken from the country's London embassy.

Assange spent nearly seven years in the nation's London embassy where he sought asylum, until he was dragged out by police in dramatic scenes on Thursday.

While Assange awaits the very likely possibility of extradition to the United States and prosecution for reporting on the sins of the world's most powerful, mainstream media "journalists" are doing humanity another great service - by posting irrelevant videos and pictures taken inside the embassy in an effort to assist Quito in its smearing efforts.

That stint ended on Thursday when Ecuador revoked his asylum and he was arrested by British police.

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.

Ecuador's president, Lenín Moreno, was assured by two British foreign secretaries that Julian Assange would not be extradited to a country where he could face the death penalty, according to letters seen by the Guardian.

On Thursday, the country revoked that asylum, leading to Assange's arrest by British police on a US hacking charge.

The letters, which are virtually identical, read: "You have expressed concern that, should Julian Assange be extradited from the United Kingdom, there would be a risk that he could be subject to the death penalty".

Assange is now expected to fight extradition to the USA over an allegation that he conspired with former army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to break into a classified government computer.

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

"He maintained constant improper hygienic behaviour throughout his stay, which affected his own health and affecting the internal climate of the diplomatic mission", he said.
