Julian Assange accused of setting up 'spy centre' in Ecuadorian embassy

Lenin Moreno said that no other country had an influence over the decision to revoke the Wiki Leaks founder's asylum

Assange was arrested at the embassy on Thursday after Ecuador gave him up, and is now also fighting a United States extradition warrant relating to the release by WikiLeaks of a huge cache of official documents.

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.

In a video announcement after Assange's arrest, Moreno accused Assange of "discourteous and aggressive behaviour" inside the embassy, and said that WikiLeaks made "hostile and threatening declarations" during Assange's time in the embassy.

Footage from Russian state broadcaster Ruptly shows Julian Assange, heavily bearded, being forcibly removed from Ecuador's London embassy on Thursday.

A photo of Ecuadorian President Lenín Moreno lounging in bed with a giant platter of lobster in front of him may have spurred Julian Assange's eviction from the country's London embassy.

Two far-left German MPs, Heike Hansel and Sevim Dagdelen of Die Linke, and a Spanish Green member of the European Parliament, Ana Miranda, had been due to meet their "friend" Assange in London's Ecuadoran embassy later on Monday.

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

"We can not allow our house, the house that opened its door to become a centre for spying".

Supporters of Assange protest outside the British Embassy in Washington, DC.

"The key issue at the moment is USA extradition, which we have warned about for many years", she added.

Robinson says Assange has had "a very hard time" since Moreno came to power in 2017.

"This activity violates asylum conditions".

On Sunday, however, a lawyer representing Assange alleged that Ecuador's government was spreading lies about his behavior.

After his arrest last week, Assange was taken to Westminster Magistrates' Court in London, where he was found guilty of breaching his bail conditions, and USA officials charged him with conspiracy.

"Ecuador has made these allegations to justify the unlawful and extraordinary act of letting police come inside an embassy", Robinson told the UK's Sky News. The charge is in relation to Assange's alleged work with Chelsea Manning, a former US intelligence analyst, in cracking a password that helped Manning infiltrate Pentagon computers.

Kevin Durant and Patrick Beverley ejected from Game 1
Quickly, an official jumped in the middle and gave both players a technical foul before ejecting them from the game. With 4:41 to play, the two got tangled up, with Durant pushing Beverley into the scorer's table.


The always-curious minds that populate USA and United Kingdom newsrooms have instantly accepted and promoted the notion that it was not extreme pressure from Washington that prompted Ecuador to finally push the eject button on Assange's stay, it was obviously this convenient "misbehavior" that got too much for them.
