“Lawyer for WikiLeak’s Julian Assange Says Arranging To Meet Police”

Posted By on December 6, 2010

This from NBC: Julian Assange’s attorney says a place and time are being negotiated for a meeting with Scotland Yard.  There will be a waiting line of countries that want to arrest Julian Assange. 

Interestingly, despite discussion that the British authorities are well aware of where Assange is located, his arrest has so far been elusive.  It does make one wonder just what is contained in the 1.4 gigabyte file floating in torrentspace, which Assange’s threatens to release if arrested!

From Reuters:

A lawyer for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said on Monday he and his client were in the process of arranging to meet British police.

“Julian Assange has not been charged with anything,” Mark Stephens told BBC television.

“We are in the process of making arrangements to meet with the police by consent in order to facilitate the taking of that question and answer that’s needed.”

He could not give details about when that might be arranged.

Assange is wanted in Sweden in connection with alleged sex crimes.

The latest from the Guardian:

8.24pm: This just in from Ewan MacAskill, the Guardian’s correspondent in Washington:

“International pressure on Julian Assange intensified tonight as the U.S. attorney general, Eric Holder, disclosed that he had authorised “significant” actions aimed at prosecuting the WikiLeaks founder over the release of thousands of diplomatic cables.
The US attorney general, speaking at a press conference in Washington, said: “The lives of people who work for the American people have been put at risk. The American people themselves have been put at risk by these actions that I believe are arrogant, misguided and ultimately not helpful in any way. We are doing everything that we can.”

Asked if he might mount a prosecution under the Espionage Act, Holder said: “That is certainly something that might play a role, but there are other statutes, other tools at our disposal”
