UK police say still wants to arrest Assange if he leaves Ecuadorian embassy

UK police: Assange still wanted for jumping bail, will face arrest if he leaves Ecuadorean embassy in London, reported Associated Press.

Julian Assange will be arrested if he leaves the Ecuadorian embassy despite Sweden dropping its sexual assault investigation, British police have confirmed.

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said that despite Sweden’s European arrest warrant for the WikiLeaks founder being lifted, he was under a separate warrant for skipping bail.

“Westminster Magistrates’ Court issued a warrant for the arrest of Julian Assange following him failing to surrender to the court on the 29 June 2012,” a statement said.
