WikiLeaks Founder, Julian Assange's 'Arrest' - Supreme Court Appeal Hearing Goes Through

Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadorean embassy in London since June 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden, where prosecutors issued an arrest warrant after two women accused him of sexual assault in 2010.
The Australian, who denies any wrongdoing, in February appealed to the Supreme Court after losing an appeal in November.
His lawyers have argued the Swedish prosecutor had not acted with necessary speed in the case, violating Assange’s rights.
No date has been set for the hearing. In the meantime, the arrest warrant was to remain in force, the Supreme Court said.
The Supreme Court only considers cases where it is important to establish a judgment — or precedent — that may provide guidance for lower courts.
Assange’s lawyers have criticised the prosecution over rejecting proposals to interview him in London.
The prosecutors argued there was no value in questioning him there since a trial would most likely have to take place in Sweden.
