Julian Assange, WikiLeaks boss, turned Ecuador embassy into "center of spying" president Lenin Moreno claims

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has effectively made his escape from the London embassy and allowing for his arrest. Ecuadorian officials, including the nation's president, have found it pervasive of crude behavior and poor pet ownership to turn their property into a "center for spying."

A lawyer for the Australian hacker, who remains jailed in London pending a ruling on possible extradition to the U.S., has accused Ecuador of hurling "outrageous allegations" to distract from their "unlawful" abandonment of her client.

Why was Julian Assange arrested?

In an interview published by The Guardian newspaper, Ecuadorean President Lenin Moreno claims that he has been arrested for his purportedly leaking for his WikiLeaks purportedly leaking documents, including claims of secret bank accounts and hidden wealth.

Moreno insisted it was Assange's actions against other democratic countries, taken while he was living in Ecuador's embassy for seven years, that had led to the eviction.

"Any attempt to destabilize is a reprehensible act for Ecuador, because we are a sovereign nation and respectful of the politics of each country," Moreno told The Guardian. "We can not allow our house to open its doors, to become a center for spying."

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

In one part of the video, El Pais says Assange can be seen arguing with embassy staff who tried to prevent him from meeting with associates in the rooms.

Assange is now in custody at Belmarsh prison in southeast london, awaiting sentencing in Britain for skipping bail to avoid being sent to Sweden as part of an investigation of a rape allegation. Sweden is considering reviving the investigation.

The United States is thus seeking its extradition after charging it with a contract to break into a Pentagon computer system, which could lead to competing extradition demands. The U.S. Bills carry a possible five-year sentence.

"Outrageous allegations?"

Lawyer Jennifer Robinson told British TV network Sky News the Ecuadorian government was spreading all the falsehoods to divert attention from its decision to revoke his asylum and allow his arrest at its British Embassy,

"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 wrong and extraordinary act in allowing British police to come to embassy," Robinson said.

Ecuador's Moreno ends Assange's protected status after 6½ years and opened the way for his arrest. Moreno gas said Assange abused Ecuador's goodwill, mistreated embassy staff and used it to try to interfere in other country's political affairs.

Assange has had "a very difficult time" since Moreno took office in Ecuador in 2017, Robinson said.

What happens next?

U.K. Home Secretary Sajid Javid would have to say the final say in which extradition claim takes priority. More than 70 British Legislators have urged to give priority to a case involving rape allegations ahead of the U.S. request.

He would not be expected to enter a plea to the Department of Justice case unless he loses his extradition case and is brought to a courtroom in the United States.

Assange, who appeared in August 2012, has denied the Swedish rape allegation, asserting the sex was consensual.

He has not formally responded to the U.S. conspiracy charge. His indictment was made public hours after his arrest, but Assange's lawyers say he is a legitimate journalist whose prosecution would have a chilling effect.

The extradition court in Britain does not want to judge the evidence against him, but he does not want to compromise the crime.

Assange's next court appearance is scheduled for May 2. In the meantime, WikiLeaks has said.
