Jennifer Robinson (centre) says Ecuador has made "outrageous allegations" against Julian Assange.

Julian Assange used the Ecuadorian embassy in London as a "centre for spying", the country's leader has said.

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

"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.

"We can not allow our house, the house that opened its doors, to become a centre for spying", Mr Moreno has told the newspaper.

He made the move after losing his battle against extradition to Sweden where he faced allegations including rape.

"This activity violates asylum conditions".

The president also made references to Assange's apparently poor hygiene, which include Assange "putting faeces on the walls".

"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".

Ms Ridge also said Assange's fears of a U.S. extradition threat were proved correct this week after allegations were made that he conspired to hack into a classified Pentagon computer.

Mr Moreno, who inherited the problem of the Assange residency when he took office two years ago, added that the founder of Wikileaks had breached a "list of rules of behaviour" that included penetrating "the security apparatus of the mission. put up a security camera and electronic apparatus which was not authorised; and maintained improper hygienic conduct which went on constantly during his stay in the embassy".

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.

British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has joined Assange's supporters in saying he should be protected against extradition to the U.S. because he exposed evidence of "atrocities" in Iraq and Afghanistan.
