UK Receives Arrest Warrant for Julian Assange

The UK has received an arrest warrant for Julian Assange of Wikileaks. Extradition is being sought by Sweden.

The warrant is being processed by the Serious Organised Crime Agency and will be sent to the Metropolitan Police as he is thought to be in the London area. Mr Assange is wanted in Sweden to face sex allegations which he denies.

The Swiss have closed his bank account, but no criminal charges will result and he will get the money.

    for not having documentation of an address in Geneva?  Odd they weren't concerned when he opened the account...lame.  Swiss banks ain't what they used to be.
