"We are faced with a humanitarian imperative now that Assange is in United Kingdom custody and a USA extradition request is out for him, after high ranking officials of the U.S. - including President Donald Trump - have threatened the publisher with death", said Miranda.

Assange has yet to be extradited from the United Kingdom, and leaked footage obtained by El Pais and published by CNN has shown a glimpse at how the 47-year-old spent his time inside the embassy.

Julian Assange has been accused of trying to create a "centre for spying" in the Ecuadorian embassy that sheltered him.

German and Spanish lawmakers protested against Julian Assange's detention on Monday, gathering outside a London prison to urge Britain and the European Union to prevent his extradition to the United States.

"We can not allow our house, the house that opened its doors, to become a centre for spying", added Moreno, who was elected in 2017. He said he regretted that Assange had used the embassy to interfere in other country's democracies.

President Moreno of Ecuador said in an interview that Assange had "bothered and threatened guards; [and] hit and mistreated employees of the embassy".

Moreno, who was less sympathetic to Assange's cause than his left-wing predecessor Rafael Correa, had requested that he limit his online political presence, stop riding his skateboard in the embassy hall's and clean up after his cat.

Moreno, who became president in 2017, said his nation's previous government provided spying facilities within the embassy.

Belmarsh has frequently been used in high-profile national security cases, including that of former Finsbury Park Mosque hate preacher Abu Hamza, who now resides in a USA "supermax" prison following extradition.

"This activity violates asylum conditions".

"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.

The US has also requested his extradition, charging him with conspiracy to hack government computers.

The Wikileaks founder is now expected to fight extradition to the U.S. over an allegation that he conspired with former army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to break into a classified government computer.
