Assange arrested

Newshub reports:

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been arrested at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.
Scotland Yard says the Australian has been taken to a police station and will soon appear in court.
Assange claimed political asylum at the embassy since 2012, but British police say the Ecuadorian government has withdrawn asylum and invited them in.

Julian shouldn’t have bitten the hand that protected him.

It will be interesting to see what happens now. His arrest in the UK is over breaching bail but he doesn’t face substantive charges there. He has been charged with rape in Sweden and there is speculation the US may have laid charges against him related to Wikileaks.

The rape charges in Sweden are not clear cut and some have effectively expired. Again not clear if the Swedish Government will proceed or not.
