Julian Assange ignores police request to surrender

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is ignoring a Metropolitan Police order to surrender himself at a police station, his representative has said.

Susan Benn said he was advised to “decline to comply” and will remain inside the Ecuadorian embassy while his application for asylum is processed. Assange is avoiding being sent to Sweden to face rape and assault accusations.

The Guardian reports that an extradition unit delivered a note to Mr Assange at the London embassy on Thursday.

The police letter required that the 40-year-old surrender himself to Belgravia police station. Under international diplomatic arrangements, the police cannot go into the embassy to arrest Mr Assange.

Assange said he had evidence that the US had secret plans to force him to face trial in America. “In the US, since at least the beginning of 2011, a US grand jury has been empanelled in Washington. It has been pulling in witnesses, forced testimony from those witnesses, subpoenaed records from Google, from Twitter,” he said.
