While Julian Assange's latest appeal to lift his arrest warrant was rejected by a Swedish appeals court, the court also put pressure on prosecutors.By Jake Godin | November 20, 2014
Sweden's judicial system has once again dashed the hopes of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, rejecting an appeal by his lawyers to drop his arrest warrant on Thursday.
That means Assange must continue residing in London's Ecuadorian embassy, which has served as his home since Ecuador granted him asylum in 2012. He's been under constant guard by British police ever since. (Video via ODN)
If Assange were to, say, walk out the door or revoke his asylum, he would face extradition to Sweden for allegations he committed sex crimes in 2010.
