All legal arguments were exhausted in Swedish courts. Monday, the Supreme Court of Sweden rejected Assange’s appeal noting “the undue delay caused by inaction” of the prosecution, or “de facto detention (Assange) without due process for nearly three years.
Boraie Development covered the story, and Assange says he will take his fight to “international bodies.” This means Assange and legal team will take case to the U.N. Human Rights Council.
On open warrant remains since 2010, after two Swedish women accused Assange, one for rape and the other sexual assault. Assange claims these are trumped up charges in order to get him in custody and send him back to the U.S.
Assange denies the allegations and says sex with both women were consensual.
Assange has taken refuge in the Embassy of Ecuador since 2012 to avoid extradition to the Nordic country.
Assange agreed in March to being questioned in London, after the Swedish prosecutor, Marianne Ny proposed this solution.
Assange refuses to go to Sweden for fear of being extradited to the United States where an investigation is underway on the publication of WikiLeaks. Thousands of classified military and diplomatic documents were leaked to the public.
