Finally the person behind disclosure of documents with ‘thermonuclear’ effects gets arrested. WikiLeaks chief Julian Assange has been taken into custody over rape allegations in Sweden.
WikiLeaks chief however, denied the allegations and told that he would fight against this.
Assange has been a talk of tongue globally following the release of confidential documents on his website WikiLeaks of the documents exposing diplomats and politicians that have put governments of many countries on their toes.
He will face an arrest warrant in Sweden. According to his lawyer the allegations were false and emerged following a ‘consensual physical relationship. But the officials and government agencies were trying to trap Assange by making it a rape case. Assange was not granted bail by the district court citing he might affect or try to affect the judicial process using his resources.
A filmmaker Ken Loach, Journalist John Pilger and Jemima Khan, a socialite with three other people offered £20,000 each in the court asking for Assange’s bail.
However the district judge considered Assange accused of serious allegations and did not agree to grant bail fearing he might deny surrendering later.
Assange is also wanted in other four accusations against him in different countries.
