Further revelations from the WikiLeaks website has prompted a flurry of questions over why founder Julian Assange isn’t under arrest tonight – even though police in London revealed they have known his whereabouts for more than a month.
Australian-born Assange, 39, has been hiding in plain sight in Britain despite being on Interpol’s wanted list.
The world’s biggest international police organisation took out a formal arrest warrant against the WikiLeaks boss following a request from Sweden, where he is sought on charges of rape and sexual molestation.
But Scotland Yard officers are yet to receive any official instructions to arrest him, according to reports in the UK, where Assange has been staying since the end of October.
Britain’s Serious Organised Crime Agency has received the so-called ‘Red Notice’ international arrest warrant but has so far refused to authorise his arrest.
