Assange used Ecuador's embassy for 'spying'- Ecuador

Assange was seized by plain clothes police officers on April 11 during dramatic scenes that saw him expelled from the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

If Stockholm makes a formal extradition request, the British government will have to decide whether to consider it before or after that of the United States.

The footage, obtained by Spanish newspaper El País, shows Assange, wearing a tank top and shorts, try to balance on the skateboard and move across a small room in the embassy, where he lived in a 330-square-foot space and developed a tense relationship with staff.

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. He also kicked a ball around the embassy's corridors to entertain himself, the newspaper reported.

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.

The first thing that everyone wanted to know was why the embassy had terminated their protection of Assange after seven years.

Assange pleaded not guilty to the charge of breaking the terms of his bail in 2012 when he sought refuge at the embassy in London, but was convicted nevertheless.

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

The president also made references to Assange's apparently poor hygiene following allegations made by Ecuador's interior minister, Maria Paula Romo.

Assange is now in custody in London while Swedish officials weigh up whether to reopen an investigation into rape allegations against him.

After he was arrested on Thursday, US officials announced that he was charged with conspiracy to commit computer intrusion over WikiLeaks' release of sensitive military US documents, paving the way for his extradition.

"The politics of the case with respect with Ecuador's change of government with Lenin Moreno coming to power and ever since then inside the embassy it's become more and more hard to the point where Human Rights Watch said was akin to solitary confinement", she said. "Julian Assange is somebody who has done a lot to shine a light on real abuses of state power and the war crimes that we saw in Iraq, so it's really key, I think, to ensure that we give the public the information so that we can hopefully ensure that politicians, at least in this country, don't ever take us into an illegal war again as we saw in Iraq in 2003", Williamson said.

"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.
