The Leaked Photo That Got Julian Assange Kicked Out Of The Embassy

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

The Latin American country has claimed Assange's actions deteriorated before his arrest last week and included putting excrement on walls, leaving soiled laundry in the bathroom, and not properly looking after his cat.

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

There are a lot of rumours doing the rounds, perhaps the most interesting of which has to do with lobster and Ecuadorian President Lenín Moreno.

President Moreno - who came to power in 2017 - said of the decision to end Assange's seven-year stay in the embassy: "Any attempt to destabilise is a reprehensible act for Ecuador, because we are a sovereign nation and respectful of the politics of each country".

Assange skateboarded inside the embassy to "kill time", El País said, citing security guards at the embassy.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is seen in a police van after was arrested by British police outside the Ecuadorian embassy in London, Britain April 11, 2019.

Assange's lawyer, Jennifer Robinson, has denied the "outrageous" claims made by Ecuador about his behaviour at the embassy, including that he had to reminded to flush the toilet, didn't clean his dishes and left the cooker on. This man has been inside a room with no outside access.

"It is unfortunate that, from our territory and with the permission of authorities of the previous government, facilities have been provided within the Ecuadorian embassy in London to interfere in processes of other states", Lenin Moreno told The Guardian newspaper on Sunday.

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

The Australian had spent seven years at the embassy fighting extradition to Sweden, where he is wanted over sexual assault allegations made against him.

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". Assange is being held at Belmarsh Prison in London and 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.

Just hours later, the U.S. Justice Department released documents saying Assange had been charged with "conspiracy to commit computer intrusion", and were requesting his extradition to the country.
