UK court: WikiLeaks Assange's warrant of arrest stays

Ecuador granted Assange, a native of Australia, citizenship last month. Assange maintains that he was forced to seek political asylum in the embassy to avoid political persecution.

In his late 20s, he went to Melbourne University to study mathematics and physics. I do not accept there is no sunlight; there are a number of photographs of him on a balcony connected to the premises he inhabits. "He should have the courage to come to court".

Assange wrote on Twitter before the hearing that his latest legal argument hinged on an alleged "cover-up" by the British government to keep him detained. The two leaks represented the largest security breaches of their kind in US military history.

Separately, a party of four climbers is stranded and one of them is hurt, said Sgt. Brian Jensen, a sheriff's office spokesman.

The publication of the Observer story has all the elements of a damage limitation exercise on the eve of today's court case. He said the judge's ruling contained "significant factual errors" which he did not spell out. Mr Assange denies the allegations.

Robinson said Assange's case was a test for the freedom of the press to publish. In November Britain's High Court rejects an appeal against his extradition.

Ten days later a judge at London's Westminster Magistrates' Court issued a warrant for his arrest.

He was facing sexual assault allegations in Sweden.

His lawyer Gareth Peirce told reporters after Tuesday's ruling that the proceedings had raised "serious issues".

Police motorcyclists briefly stop outside the Ecuadorian embassy in London, Tuesday, Feb. 13, 2018.

Assange was also criticized for being a drain on police resources during his self-imposed exile in the embassy.

If the judge had nullified the warrant, Assange might have left the embassy, but that was far from certain.

Julian Assange remains in limbo in the Ecuadorian embassy after a UK judge ruled the WikiLeaks founder "should have the courage" to face court over a long-standing arrest warrant. For more than a year, the Socialist Workers Party and the Socialist Party refused to defend Assange, finally and briefly breaking their silence to argue that he "must face rape charges", or that the accusations against him "should be properly investigated". It wasn't until 2017, four years later, that CPS chose to do abide by the request.

Gareth Peirce, one of Assange's legal team, said it would be possible to appeal against the decision.

In 2016, it published e-mails, hacked by Russian intelligence, that were damaging to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

It is not publicly known whether there is a sealed indictment against Assange.

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions last year said his arrest was a "priority". A Justice Department official recently confirmed to Reuters this investigation was still open. "The US government has made clear its intention to bring a prosecution against WikiLeaks". He also called Assange a "fraud" and a "coward".

Media reports have suggested a sometimes strained relationship between Assange and his hosts.

Mr Assange has been staying at the embassy since 2012, claiming he fears extradition to the US.

The WikiLeaks' founder thinks he is "above the normal rules of law", judge says, as Assange fails to have arrest warrant dropped.
