Assange and the European Arrest Warrant

by Andrew Stuttaford

It’s worth noting that Assange was arrested courtesy of a European Arrest Warrant. I’m no fan (to put it mildly) of Mr. Assange, but these warrants are a fairly iniquitous aspect of EU integration (they lack many of the usual protections to which a defendant ought to be entitled) and they are very difficult to resist. Best guess is that Assange will end up in Sweden soon.
