Assange was originally being pursued for sexual offenses by Sweden. Arrested in Britain, he skipped bail and sought refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. He has been there since 2012.
A British judge says she will rule next month on whether to scrap a U.K. arrest warrant for the WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, a move that would free him to leave the Ecuadorean embassy after more than five years.
Assange’s lawyers went to court Friday to argue that the warrant serves no purpose because he is no longer wanted for questioning in Sweden over alleged sex offenses.
