Breaking: Global Arrest Warrant Issued For WikiLeaks’ Assange

(Washington Post)

It was rumored that the US Government, specifically the US Attorney’s office in Alexandria Virginia, is going to charge Julian Assange with Espionage.  Obviously, the Interpol warrant, being worldwide, takes precedence.

Via The Sydney Morning Herald –

Interpol, the international police organisation, has issued a global arrest warrant for WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange, as the activist website continued its US diplomatic cables leaks today.

The 39-year-old Australian was added to the organisation’s “wanted” list for alleged sex crimes committed in Sweden this year.

He is suspected of rape, sexual molestation and unlawful coercion, after an investigation by Swedish prosecutors into his encounters with two women in Sweden in August.

Mr. Assange has made some powerful enemies.  One wonders if he might be safer in custody rather than jet setting around the world.
