According to various news sources the Founder of Wikileaks Julian Assange was arrested today in London.
Scotland Yard said Mr Assange was arrested by appointment at a London police station at 0930 GMT, meaning that he turned himself in.
The arrest is not for his activities on Wikileaks but based on a warrant issued in Sweden accusing him of one count of rape, one of unlawful coercion and two counts of sexual molestation, alleged to have been committed in August 2010.
If the district judge rules the arrest warrant is legally correct, he could be extradited to Sweden.
A Wikileaks spokesman told Reuters that:
“Wikileaks is operational. We are continuing on the same track as laid out before.
“Any development with regards to Julian Assange will not change the plans we have with regards to the releases today and in the coming days.”
