Interpol Issues Arrest Warrant for WikiLeaks Founder

HeadlineDec 01, 2010

As new revelations emerge, the international law enforcement organization Interpol has issued a global arrest warrant for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. A Swedish court issued an arrest warrant for Assange on charges of rape and sexual molestation last month after the prosecutor initially dropped the case. Assange has denied the allegations and said he is the target of a smear campaign. He is also under investigation in the United States and could face charges under the Espionage Act. Assange’s current whereabouts are unknown.
