Equador gave up foolish Julian Assange to teach him a hot lesson after he failed to show due reverence to guards at their embassy in London and also undertook actions to undermine the country that had offered him asylum.
Ecuador’s president Lenin Moreno said the sovereign decision of his country to withdraw the asylum status to Julian Assange related to his repeated violations to international conventions and daily-life protocol
Mr Moreno said that Ecuador’s patience had run out over Assange’s behaviour inside the embassy which included blocking security cameras, installing electronic equipment, mistreating guards and accessing security files. On Wednesday, Wikleaks accused the Ecuadorian government of spying on Assange, raising tensions with his hosts whilst holding refuge in their embassy.
Wikleaks editor-in-chief, Kristinn Hrafnsson, told reporters that Assange’s meetings with lawyers and a doctor had been secretly filmed by Ecuadorian authorities. Assange’s foolishness clearly knew no boundaries as his decision to bite the hand that was feeding him led to the acceleration of his downfall.
.He said in a video: “Today, I announce that the discourteous and aggressive behaviour of Mr Julian Assange, the hostile and threatening declaration of its allied organisation, against Ecuador, and especially the transgression of international treaties, have led the situation to a point where the asylum of Mr Assange is unsustainable and no longer viable.
The United States has now charged WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange with one count of conspiracy to hack a computer related to his role in the 2010 release of reams of secret American documents, according to a criminal complaint unsealed Thursday just hours after British authorities arrested him in London.
Among the charges facing Mr. Assange is his organization’s release during the 2016 presidential campaign of stolen mails from the computer systems of the Democratic National Committee that led to a series of revelations that United States investigators have said that the systems were hacked by Russian agents.
Prosecutors say Assange was complicit in arrangements to break a password to a classified United States government computer. Other allegations of interfering with the internal affairs of other states all contributed to the fast tracking of his arrest. An allegation of rape which was eventually drop because Sweden’s top prosecutor lost hopes of obtaining justice because of his asylum is to be re-opened.
