Julian Assange's war of words with Ecuadorian government

Julian Assange's war of words with Ecuadorian government

Moreno also reiterated the claim made by the Ecuadorean government that Assange's hygiene and behavior constituted an "aggressive campaign against Ecuador" from inside the embassy.

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

Earlier Sunday, Assange's lawyer said his client would cooperate with Swedish authorities if they reopen a rape case against him but would continue to resist any bid to extradite him to the United States.

Leaked security footage shows WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange try to skateboard in a room in London's Ecuadorian embassy, where he lived for nearly seven years.

Assange was forcibly removed from the embassy last week by British police after Ecuador revoked his political asylum and was quickly found guilty by a British court of breaching his bail conditions related to allegations of rape he faced in Sweden in 2012.

"We can not allow our house, the house that opened its doors, to become a center for spying", he added.

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

Over the weekend Ecuadorian president Lenín Moreno accused Assange of using the embassy to interfere with the internal affairs of other states - including the Vatican.

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.

"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", she said.

He also decried what he said was Assange's behaviour inside the embassy: "He mistreated our officials in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, abused the patience of Ecuadorians".

One particularly controversial piece, consisting of gun camera footage leaked to Assange's organization by former US army soldier Chelsea Manning, appears to show US Apache gunships firing on civilians in Iraq in 2007.
