Secret visitors' logs seen by the Guardian show that Bini was one of Assange's many visitors in Ecuador's embassy in Knightsbridge, west London.
But when you're Julian Assange, holed up inside an embassy for seven years, you're options are pretty limited.
He was arrested at the embassy on Thursday after Ecuador revoked his asylum, and is now also fighting a United States extradition warrant relating to the release by WikiLeaks of a huge cache of official documents.
"Any attempt to destabilise is a reprehensible act for Ecuador, because we are a sovereign nation and respectful of the politics of each country", [President Lenín Moreno] said in the interview, which was conducted by email.
"We can not allow our house, the house that opened its doors, to become a center for spying", Moreno told the Guardian.
On Sunday, however, a lawyer representing Assange alleged that Ecuador's government was spreading lies about his behavior.
He was arrested and removed by British police on Thursday after Ecuador revoked his asylum. Sweden is considering reviving the investigation.
Ms Ridge also said Assange's fears of a United States extradition threat were proved correct this week after allegations were made that he conspired to hack into a classified Pentagon computer.
Because Ecuador strongly opposes the death penalty, they wanted an assurance from the US that Assange would not face capital punishment if he was extradited to America.
Moreno said the 47-year-old abused Ecuador's goodwill, mistreated embassy staff and used his perch to try to interfere in other country's political affairs.
Meanwhile, freaky footage of Assange skateboarding inside the Ecuadorean embassy has been obtained by the Spanish newspaper El Pais.
Before evicting Assange, Moreno said he sought assurances from Britain that Assange would not "suffer torture, ill treatment or the death penalty" were he to be taken into custody or extradited to another country.
UK Home Secretary Sajid Javid would be expected to have the final say in which claim takes priority. More than 70 British legislators have urged Javid to give priority to a case involving rape allegations ahead of the USA request.
El Pais said in its article that Assange had been granted permission by the embassy in 2012 to use recording equipment in order to work out who was throwing objects at his window in the early hours of the morning.
In the affidavit submitted to federal court in Alexandria, Virginia, prosecutors said USA military reports from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq included information about the "identity and significance of local supporters of US and allied forces in Afghanistan". Assange traveled to Britain, where a court ruled in 2012 to extradite him to Sweden.
Assange's next court appearance is scheduled for May 2.
