Big blow to Julian Assange; warrant for his arrest upheld by court 13.2.2018 DNA: Mumbai
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange lost a legal bid on Tuesday to persuade British authorities to drop further action against him for breaching his bail conditions when he walked into the Ecuadorean embassy in London in 2012. The ruling means Assange remains in a legal and diplomatic impasse, with no way out of the embassy where he has been living for almost six years unless he decides to face the prospect of arrest by British police. Assange, 46, entered Ecuador's embassy in June 2012 after skipping bail to avoid being sent to Sweden to face an allegation of rape, which he denied. The Swedish case was dropped in May last year, but Britain still has a warrant out for his arrest over the breach of bail terms. "I find arrest is a proportionate response even though Mr Assange has restricted his own freedom for a number of years," judge Emma Arbuthnot, the chief magistrate of England and Wales, said in her ruling at Westminster Magistrates Court. Assange says he fears that if he hands himself in he could be ...

Assange loses legal bid to overturn UK arrest warrant 6.2.2018 General News
In a setback to Julian Assange, a British court today ruled that an UK arrest warrant against the Wikileaks founder was still valid, signalling that he could be arrested if he tries to leave the Ecuadorian embassy here where he has been holed up since 2012. A handful of supporters waving "Free Assange" banners had gathered outside Westminster Magistrates Court in London in anticipation of the ruling in the high-profile case involving the 46-year-old Australian national. But the judge ruled that it was "not uncommon" for a warrant for failing to surrender to remain valid when there were no underlying proceedings pending. Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot, the judge who is currently also presiding over the extradition trial of liquor tycoon Vijay Mallya the next hearing date for which is expected in mid-March, had reserved her judgement in the Assange case last month. "Once at court, a defendant will be given an opportunity to put an argument for reasonable cause. And that .

UK court to rule on lifting Assange arrest warrant 6.2.2018 General News
A British court is to decide today whether to lift a UK arrest warrant for Julian Assange, potentially paving the way for the WikiLeaks founder to leave the Ecuadorian embassy in London where he has spent the last five years. If the court rules in Assange's favour, allowing him to leave the embassy in the British capital without fear of arrest, it would be the first time that he has stepped outside embassy grounds since seeking asylum there in June 2012. Assange entered the Ecuadoran embassy to dodge a European arrest warrant and extradition to Sweden over a 2010 probe in the Scandinavian country into rape and sexual assault allegations. Sweden dropped its investigation last year, but British police are still seeking to arrest Assange for failing to surrender to a court after violating bail terms during his unsuccessful battle against extradition. Assange's lawyer Mark Summers told a London court last week that the warrant had "lost its purpose and its function". He said

UK judge expresses concern over Assange's health in embassy 27.1.2018 General News
A UK judge has expressed concern over the health of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, who has been holed up in the Ecuador embassy in London since he sought asylum there over five years ago. Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot, the judge who is currently also presiding over the extradition trial of liquor tycoon Vijay Mallya - the next hearing date for which remains uncertain, reserved her judgement in the Assange case after a hearing on Friday. The hearing involved a plea by Assange's lawyers to cancel a pending arrest warrant against the campaigner. They argued that the only thing stopping the 46-year-old from leaving the building is a threat that he will be arrested by the Scotland Yard for breaching bail conditions. As proceedings in Sweden over rape allegations have now been dropped, they believe the British arrest warrant has lost its purpose. "I am particularly concerned that there are some medical issues. I am aware that he has depression, frozen shoulder and a ...
