WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been arrested by British police over sexual assault claims in Sweden.In addition to treason, this little SOB should be charged with attempted blackmail over his treat to release encrypted information if Wikileaks is shut down. He, and Bradley Manning, should also receive a date soon with a tree and rope.
The 39-year-old Australian was detained by Scotland Yard officers at around 9.30am after he voluntarily went to a police station in central London.
Police contacted Mr Assange's lawyer last night after receiving a fresh European arrest warrant from the Swedish authorities, as anger grows in the US over the latest leaked embassy cables by the whistleblowing website.
Labelling the move as a "political stunt", Mr Assange's solicitor Mark Stephens said his client wants to find out what allegations he faces so he can clear his name.
Mr Stephens has warned any attempt to extradite Mr Assange will be resisted, "mainly on the grounds that he may be handed over to the Americans".
Two women in Sweden have claimed they were sexually attacked in separate incidents when Mr Assange visited the country in August.
