- Julian Assange smeared feces, according to Ecuador's interior minister
- The message was forced by the Wikileaks founder to tolerate other unimaginable behaviors
- Assange faces up to 12 months in prison after the judge found him guilty of skipping the bail
Julian Assange smeared feces over the walls of the Ecuadorian embassy in London before being taken out of his seven-year-old hiding place.
The unveiling was made by the Ecuadorian Home Secretary after the Wikileaks founder was dramatically arrested by British police officers today.
The country's president, Lenin Moreno, accused the Australian of "rude and aggressive behavior" when he confirmed that the South American country had withdrawn its asylum status.

Rafael Correa, President of Ecuador when Assange was granted asylum, described Moreno as a traitor.
But the country's interior minister, Maria Paula Romo, struck back by claiming Correa allowed the 47-year-old to get away with unimaginable behavior.
She said, “During his stay at the Ecuadorian embassy, under the government of former President Rafael Correa, they tolerated things like Mr. Assange, who put feces on the walls of the embassy, and other behaviors that are far from the embassy Minimum respect that a guest should have in a country that has received him generously. & # 39;
She didn't make it clear whether he had used his own droppings or someone else's.

Assange, with a neglected beard and hair, was handcuffed out of the embassy by a group of seven men after his asylum status was withdrawn.
He has been in a British prison for up to 12 months after being found guilty before the Westminster Magistrates Court for skipping bail in 2012 to take refuge at the embassy for rape allegations that led to Sweden's arrest to search.
He is now facing a fight against extradition to America, where he is sought for espionage and the publication of sensitive government documents.
His lawyers fear he will face the death penalty, an allegation that President Moreno rejected today. He said Britain had confirmed that Assange would not be extradited to a country where he could face the death sentence.
Ecuadorian Foreign Minister Jose Valencia said after the arrest: “Britain has given guarantees that if a third country makes an extradition request, Mr Assange will not be given to a country that could face the death penalty or where he could be tortured. & # 39;
