Court upholds Assange arrest warrant
    2018-February-8  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A BRITISH judge upheld an arrest warrant for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on Tuesday but delayed until next week her decision on a further application by his lawyers to cancel it.

Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadoran embassy since 2012 to dodge a European arrest warrant and extradition to Sweden over a 2010 probe there into rape and sexual assault allegations against him.

Sweden dropped its investigation last year.

But British police are still seeking to arrest Assange for failing to surrender to a court after violating his bail terms during his unsuccessful battle against extradition.

“I’m not persuaded that the warrant should be withdrawn,” Judge Emma Arbuthnot told a court in London.

But she said she would rule separately on another application from Assange’s lawyers asking her to consider whether it would be in the “public interest” to keep the warrant in place.

Ecuadoran President Lenin Moreno said the court’s decision did not affect Quito’s attitude.

Moreno said he had undertaken from “the first day of his term” to protect Assange, considering his life to be “in danger.”
