Julian Assange is wanted on suspicion of rape and sexual molestation.
“The prosecutor had already decided to issue an international arrest warrant – we made sure that all the police forces in the world would see it,” Tommy Kangasvieri of the SwedishNational Criminal Police said yesterday.
Interpol, based in Lyon in eastern France, said it had received an arrest warrant for the extradition of Mr Assange.
Mr Assange’s Swedish lawyer, Bjoern Hurtig, filed an appeal against the arrest warrant court order on Friday, but the appeal did not suspend the Swedish order or delay the international warrant.
