WAR­RANT UP­HELD

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

A Swedish court has turned down a re­quest to over­turn the ar­rest war­rant of Wik­iLeaks founder Ju­lian Assange. The Stock­holm District Court said it made the de­ci­sion be­cause Assange is still wanted for ques­tion­ing in a case of sus­pected rape and there is a pos­si­bil­ity he might evade pros­e­cu­tion. The court said yes­ter­day that no new cir­cum­stances had come to light war­rant­ing an­other de­ten­tion hear­ing. Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadorean Em­bassy in Lon­don since 2012.
