'Outrageous' claims Julian Assange smeared faeces on embassy walls

Julian Assange following his arrest

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".

A lawyer representing jailed WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says the Ecuadorian government has been spreading lies about his behaviour inside its embassy in London.

The Wikileaks founder faces up to twelve months in prison after being found guilty of breaching his bail conditions.

Ecuadorean President Lenin Moreno accused him of abusing his country's goodwill, mistreating embassy staff and using his perch to try to interfere in the political affairs of other countries.

As part of his opening segment on Last Week Tonight Sunday, Oliver stated it's "easy to dislike Julian Assange for a number of reasons" - which he proceeded to tick off.

"We can not allow our house, the house that opened its doors, to become a center for spying", he added.

He faces up to 12 months in jail in the United Kingdom over breaking bail conditions., and possible extradition to the U.S. over WikiLeaks' release of sensitive USA military documents.

Dubbed "Collateral Murder", the footage prompted worldwide concern over the conduct of USA forces stationed in the Middle East, something supporters of WikiLeaks argue remains behind Washington's renewed drive to extradite Assange to face charges in the United States.

UK Home Secretary Sajid Javid would be expected to have the final say in which claim takes priority.

A longtime associate of the whistleblower, however, told ABC News that he had not seen any evidence of lack of hygiene while visiting Assange, casting doubt on the Ecuadorean government's version of events.

More than 70 MPs have also urged the Government to ensure Assange faces Swedish authorities if they request his extradition.

"He first fled to the embassy to escape extradition to Sweden on rape charges - charges he denied", Oliver said.

Extradition to the United States would set "a unsafe precedent" for journalists worldwide, said Miranda, adding: "this threatens to criminalise journalism globally".

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.

He took refuge at the Ecuadorian embassy in 2012 and had been "in hiding" there until last week when he was forced to leave by the United Kingdom police.

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