British Police Arrests WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange

Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, has been arrested in London after almost seven years after he sought refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy.

Julian Assange was wanted by British police for skipping bail in August 2012, while he was under investigation for sexual assault and rape in Sweden.

London’s Metropolitan police released a statement which said officers had executed a warrant after the Ecuadorian government withdrew asylum.

“He has been taken into custody at a central London police station where he will remain, before being presented before Westminster Magistrates’ Court as soon as is possible,” said the statement.

“The MPS had a duty to execute the warrant, on behalf of Westminster Magistrates’ Court, and was invited into the embassy by the Ambassador, following the Ecuadorian government’s withdrawal of asylum.”
