Leaked footage offers glimpse into Julian Assange’s life inside Ecuador embassy
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.

A judge found him guilty of breaching his bail conditions and said he could face up to one year in jail, the U.K. Press Association reported.

“His assertion that he has had not had a fair hearing is laughable. And his behaviour is that of a narcissist who cannot get past his own self-interest,” Judge Michael Snow said in his decision, according to the Guardian.

Just hours later, the U.S. Justice Department released documents saying Assange had been charged with “conspiracy to commit computer intrusion,” and were requesting his extradition to the country. The charge is in relation to Assange’s alleged work with Chelsea Manning, a former U.S. intelligence analyst, in cracking a password that helped Manning infiltrate Pentagon computers.
