Julian Assange, the Wikileaks editor and spokesperson, is now wanted in Sweden, but not “wanted” in a good way. It has nothing to do with Wikileaks (so says The Man), but over an alleged rape. It’s not a new case—a warrant was issued in August before being stricken—but it’s probably not the kind of thing that Wikileaks needs as it’s trying to maintain credibility.
The actual charges Assange is now wanted for is rape, sexual molestation, and coercion.
The prosecutor in the case, Marianne Ny, said that “the reason for my request is that we need to interrogate him.”
More courtroom activity is expected later today.
Story’s short on details, so I’ll leave it here.
