British police arrested Julian Assange on December 7 over charges of sexual misconduct in Sweden. Accused by two women of rape, molestation, and sexual coercion, Assange agreed to give himself up to the British police but has vowed to contest extradition to Sweden. Some skeptics question, however, the validity of the charges levied against the founder of Wikileaks.
Yesterday, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange surrendered to London police as part of a Swedish sex-crimes investigation. The arrest followed a meeting between Assange’s lawyer Mark Stephens and British police, who revealed that they had an arrest warrant from Sweden for Assange. Prior to the arrest, Assange had been hiding out at an undisclosed location in Britain.
