London, February 22 (RHC)-- Lawyers representing Julian Assange have reportedly asked the Swedish court to overturn the arrest warrant for the WikiLeaks co-founder. This follows a UN panel’s verdict that Assange has been ‘arbitrarily detained’ in the Ecuadorian embassy in London.
Assange says he fears that if he goes to Sweden he will have to face a tribunal in the United States, where he is wanted on espionage charges related to publishing classified documents on WikiLeaks. Stockholm, however, has refused to guarantee that this would not happen.
