Assange, who has been residing in the Ecuadorian embassy in London under asylum for over three years, has been wanted for questioning by the Swedish authorities since 2010 over accusations of unlawful sexual coercion and rape.

The activist denied the accusations, stating that Swedish extradition attempts are aimed at sending him to the United States, where he faces espionage charges for publishing thousands of leaked top-secret military documents and diplomatic cables online.

Three of the four allegations against Assange expired in August due to the Swedish statute of limitations for bringing charges. A rape charge remains in effect until 2020.
