The Swedish Prosecution Authority issued an arrest warrant Friday night for Julian Assange, who is the founder of the controversial whistleblower website WikiLeaks. Assange is wanted for questioning in regards to a suspicion of rape and molestation. Assange has not been charged yet, but he also hasn’t presented himself to Swedish authorities. WikiLeaks announced on twitter that the accusations are “without basis and deeply disturbing.”
Last week Assange announced that WikiLeaks would publish about 15,000 more documents regarding the Afghanistan War “in a couple of weeks.”
BREAKING UPDATE: Less than 12 hours after Swedish authorities issued the arrest warrant for Assange, the warrant has been withdrawn and Assange is no longer wanted.
