The publisher of top-secret information addressed the mounting concerns over the brown-and-white tabby's well-being following Assange's expulsion from the Ecuadorian embassy in London.
Footage of Assange messing around on a skateboard has travelled around the world quicker than a historic WikiLeaks document dump (back when the media was interested in cashing in off the back of Assange's work).
Police in London arrested WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange at the Ecuadorean embassy Thursday for failing to surrender to the court in 2012, shortly after the South American nation revoked his asylum.
U.S. District Judge Claude M. Hilton ordered the unsealing of the criminal complaint against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on Monday, revealing that federal prosecutors in the Eastern District of Virginia have had charges at the ready since December 21, 2017.
Or perhaps it was the leaked pictures of Ecuador's President Lenin Moreno eating lobster in a fancy hotel room bed that finally did it. WikiLeaks denies having anything to do with the leak, but they are indeed the kind of photographs that might anger a corruption scandal-plagued president who imposed austerity measures on his citizens while apparently living the high life himself; just the kind of man journalists ought to be cherrily assisting in the shameless smearing of a whistleblower who is desperately fighting for his freedom.
Reports surfaced in October that Ecuador threatened Assange that the cat would be dropped off at an animal shelter if he didn't look after it.
The leaked video footage shows Assange clashing with a security guard as he holds a meeting with visitors who allegedly refused to leave.
"Ecuador has made these allegations to justify the unlawful and extraordinary act of letting police come inside an embassy", Robinson told the UK's Sky News. "The politics changed when Ecuador's political situation changed with a new leader".
Ecuador's president, Lenín Moreno, was assured by two British foreign secretaries that Julian Assange would not be extradited to a country where he could face the death penalty, according to letters seen by the Guardian.
He added: "This activity violates asylum conditions".
The US indictment charges Assange with "conspiracy", alleging that he worked with former US Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to crack a password stored on Department of Defence computers in March 2010.
After his arrest last week, Assange was taken to Westminster Magistrates' Court in London, where he was found guilty of breaching his bail conditions, and United States officials charged him with conspiracy.
He made the move after losing his battle against extradition to Sweden where he faced allegations including rape.
