Julian Assange 'Thinks He Is Above The Law', Judge Says As She Rules Arrest Warrant Should Stand

Julian Assange has been accused of thinking he is “above the normal rules of law” by a judge who ruled his arrest warrant should stand.

The Wikileaks founder lost his second bid in as many weeks to quash the warrant for skipping bail on Tuesday, with the judge saying he should “have the courage” to surrender himself to police after hiding in London’s Ecuadorian embassy since June 2012.

Had he won, Assange could have walked free, without fear of arrest.

Assange’s lawyers argued it was not in British interests to pursue Assange for the bail charge when Swedish prosecutors had dropped their investigation into sexual offences the bail related to.
