Assange's defence was that he couldn't get a fair trial in British courts because the UK was attempting to deliver him to the US, where he is wanted for stealing and publishing military and diplomatic secrets online. Assange said he was not guilty of failing to surrender to court in 2012, and his lawyer told the court he would not be giving evidence.
"His assertion that he has not had a fair hearing is laughable," Justice Snow said. "And his behaviour is that of a narcissist who cannot get past his own self-interest."
Relations between Assange and the Ecuadorian embassy have been strained recently, and the police were invited to the embassy by Ecuadorian officials. Assange's Ecuadorian citizenship has also been revoked.
The US wants Assange brought back to face charges of conspiracy to leak classified military data with Chelsea Manning, a charge that carries a penalty of up to five years in prison.
