Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, is expected to appear in a
UK court today after his lawyers said he would meet police to discuss a European arrest warrant from relating to alleged sexual assaults. Sweden
As the legal net continued to close around the whistleblowers’ website and the US attorney general, Eric Holder, said he had authorised "a number of things to be done" to combat the organisation, Assange appeared to be reconciling himself to a lengthy personal court battle to avoid extradition to Sweden.
Jennifer Robinson, a solicitor with Finers Stephens Innocent, which represents the Australian freedom of information campaigner, told the Guardian: "We have a received an arrest warrant (related to claims in
). We are negotiating a meeting with police." Sweden
Another lawyer representing Assange, Mark Stephens, added: "He has not been charged with anything. We are in the process of making arrangements to meet the police by consent, in order to facilitate the taking of that question and answer that is needed. It’s about time we got to the end of the day and we got some truth, justice and rule of law." [...]
Mr. Assange, a 39-year-old Australian, was arrested by officers from Scotland Yard’s extradition unit when he went to a central
police station by prior agreement with the authorities, the police said. A court hearing was expected later. London
In a statement, the police said: “Officers from the Metropolitan Police extradition unit have this morning arrested Julian Assange on behalf of the Swedish authorities on suspicion of rape.”
Mr. Assange denies the charges of sexual misconduct said to have been committed while he was in
in August. It was not immediately clear if Mr. Assange would resist extradition to Sweden for questioning by prosecutors there. [...] Sweden
London (CNN) — WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested Tuesday on a Swedish warrant,
’s Metropolitan Police said. London
Assange was arrested at a
London police station at 9:30 a.m. and will appear at the City of ’s Court at 2 p.m., police said. Westminster Magistrate
Swedish authorities had issued the warrant for Assange so they can talk to him about sex-crime allegations unrelated to WikiLeaks’ recent disclosure of secret
At court, Assange will be able to respond to the arrest warrant, and the court will then have roughly 21 days to decide whether to extradite him, said Mark Ellis, executive director of the International Bar Association.
Even though the Swedish warrant is a European arrest warrant designed for easy transfer of suspects among European states, Assange may still choose to fight it — something his
lawyer has promised to do, according to the Press Association. London
If the court does decide to allow his extradition, Assange will be allowed to appeal that decision, too, elongating the legal process, Ellis said.
Assange, a 39-year-old Australian, has said he has long feared retribution for his website’s disclosures and has called the rape allegations against him a smear campaign.[....]
