Julian Assange's embassy skateboarding caught on tape, with skills less than ill

Belmarsh Prison

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange arrives at the Westminster Magistrates Court after he was arrested in London on April 11.

Hacking attempts on Ecuadorean government institutions have doubled since the country revoked WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's asylum at its London embassy last week, an official said on Monday.

"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.

During his time at the Ecuadorian embassy, reports emerged that Assange's hygiene had become an issue of annoyance for staff in the building, while Ecuador's president Lenin Moreno claimed he "repeatedly violated" the terms of his asylum via his online activities.

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. Sweden is considering reviving the investigation.

Should Stockholm make a request to extradite Assange, the UK government will have to consider whether this should be done before or after that of the United States, where the 47-year-old is fighting a USA extradition warrant relating to the release by WikiLeaks of a huge cache of official documents.

The lawyer condemned as "outrageous" claims made by Ecuador about Assange's behaviour in the embassy, including that he smeared his faeces on the wall, saying: "That's not true".

Redacted Mueller report to be released Thursday, DOJ says
The bureau started the investigation as early as July 2016 and handed it over to the special counsel in May 2017. Barr's comments were criticized by Democrats, already sceptical of how he has handled the report's release.

Iran Will Iraq reemerge as battleground between US, Iran?
Despite Larijani's confidence that the USA would not impose the declaration on Iran, President Trump made the designation Monday . US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton, both Iran hawks, championed the decision.

Ecuador's Moreno ended Assange's protected status after more than 6½ years and opened the way for his arrest.

Britain's Home Secretary Sajid Javid would be expected to have the final say in which claim takes priority. More than 70 British legislators have urged Javid to give priority to a case involving rape allegations ahead of the US request.

Moreno's move against Assange has proved controversial in Ecuador.

Police dragged him from the building last week and arrested him on two warrants from the US and the UK.

Patricio Real, Ecuador's deputy minister for information and communication technologies, said the attacks, which began on Thursday, had "principally come from the United States, Brazil, Holland, Germany, Romania, France, Austria and the United Kingdom", as well as from the South American country itself. The rape charge in Sweden has been dropped, but charges in the United Kingdom remain and charges against him in the USA have also been unsealed.

Assange's next court appearance is scheduled for May 2.
