2. I heard this was a...

… "condition" or behavior among mentally challenged patients. Maybe he's going for an insanity defense?

12. This is absolutely mental illness. The biggest question this poses is, how long has

this condition persisted for him. Months...years?

15. He was not in good health in January 2018 as reported by The Guardian.

And he has been unable to access medical care during the seven years of his confinement.

"As clinicians with a combined experience of four decades caring for and about refugees and other traumatised populations, we recently spent 20 hours, over three days, performing a comprehensive physical and psychological evaluation of Mr Assange. While the results of the evaluation are protected by doctor-patient confidentiality, it is our professional opinion that his continued confinement is dangerous physically and mentally to him, and a clear infringement of his human right to healthcare..."

"In 2016 the UN human rights council working group on arbitrary detention found that Mr Assange’s situation within the Ecuador embassy had become a state of “arbitrary deprivation of liberty”. It is the opinion of the working group that the embassy is not equipped for prolonged detention and lacks the necessary medical equipment or facilities to provide a reasonable environment for Mr Assange – a determination with which we concur. Experience tells us that the prolonged uncertainty of indefinite detention inflicts profound psychological and physical trauma above and beyond the expected stressors of incarceration. These can include severe anxiety, pathological levels of stress, dissociation, depression, suicidal thoughts, post-traumatic stress disorder and chronic pain, among others.

Mr Assange is surrounded by credible personal threats from various governments and individuals. He is also unable to avail himself of his right to access medical institutions due to the threat of imminent arrest should he step outside the embassy, even for a medical emergency. It is unconscionable that Mr Assange is in the position of having to decide between avoiding arrest and potentially suffering the health consequences, including death, if a life-threatening crisis such as a heart attack were to occur. Further, our assessment reveals that he has had no access to sunlight, appropriate ventilation or outside space for over five and a half years. This has taken a considerable toll. It is our professional opinion that Mr Assange’s physical and psychological circumstances at the embassy are in violation of the spirit of the UN standard minimum rules for the treatment of prisoners."

16. Bull-'fuckin-shit...

How the hell was this "arbitrary detention" when it was self-imposed and he could have left at any time?

Doctors don't do housecalls in London? The Ecuadorian consular staff was really going to let him cough himself to death? And why did Assange never think to mention his health problems in any of the tens of thousands of interviews and speeches he gave?

3. It's lovely to know how to wield power these days.

Such actions just go with the territory. I'm sure he made his point... some point anyway.

7. They tolerated him smearing WHAT on the walls?

I would have refused to feed him until he licked it all off himself. He was their guest. I'm betting they wish they had kicked him out long before this.

14. The quotes above the video link are accurate

She's explaining why Ecuador kicked him out of the Embassy - "putting fecal material on the walls and other things that would not be acceptable from a guest".

17. Thank you.

I wish this country was more interested in building bridges than walls.

I am tri-lingual, but don't speak Spanish. I had two good opportunities to learn, but failed to seize either one of them. Now, I kick myself. So, I purchased some tapes and am trying to get the basics. Wish me luck.

18. I wish you all possible luck (although I don't share

your taste for breakfast food). If you've already got three languages under your belt (especially if one is a Romance language) you won't have much difficulty with Spanish.

19. I need all the encouragement I can get !

No, no romance language here: German and American Sign Language (talk about something that doesn't translate . . .). Plus I am trying to learn the language of my father's family: Welsh. Now THAT is a challenge. Ever heard Welsh ? It's difficult to even explain what it sounds like to others.

BTW - breakfast IS the most important meal of the day. Plus we always put a wee dram of whisky (usually a good 15-year old single malt) in our Haggis. Really gives your morning that kick-start vigor.

10. For now I withhold my belief.

I despise Assange, but this sounds like Ecuadar trying to smear his name so they appear more justified in releasing him.
