David Cameron says Julian Assange should face the arrest warrant against him

British PM David Cameron

The British Prime Minister has said Julian Assange should leave the Ecuadorian embassy in London and face the arrest warrant against him.

Last week a United Nations report concluded the Wikileaks founder is being “arbitrarily detained” there.

He has not left the building since 2012, to avoid being extradited to Sweden where he faces a rape allegation, which he denies.

David Cameron told the House of Commons that Mr Assange should bring the “whole sorry saga” to an end: “You’ve got a man here with an outstanding allegation of rape against him, he barricaded himself into the Ecuadorian embassy and yet claims he was arbitrarily detained.

“The only person who detained himself, was himself.”
