More details emerged later, when Foreign Minister José Valencia
told Congress that Assange had been using a mobile phone not
registered with the embassy, repeatedly insulted the mission’s
workers - reportedly calling them US spies - and damaged the
facilities by riding his skateboard and playing football, despite
being told not to do so.
Cleaning staff, Mr Valencia said, had described “improper hygienic
conduct” throughout Assange’s stay, an issue that a lawyer had
attributed to “stomach problems”. One unnamed senior Ecuadorean
official told AP news agency that other issues included “weeks
without a shower” and a “dental problem born of poor hygiene”.
Interior Minister María Paula Romo then complained that Assange
had been allowed to do things like “put faeces on the walls of the
embassy and other behaviours of that nature”.
Sounds like a lovely fellow.
