LONDON (AFP) – The lawyer for Julian Assange said Monday that arrangements were being made to meet with police who had received a request from Sweden for the WikiLeaks founder's extradition.
“Late this afternoon after close of business I got a call from the police, who said that they had received an extradition request from Sweden,” Mark Stephens told BBC television.
“Their request is to interview Julian Assange — he's not been charged with anything — and 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.”
He said it was not possible to give an exact time of any meeting but it would take place “in the foreseeable future.”
