WikiLeaks founder Assange loses bid to halt UK legal action against him
LONDON (Reuters) – WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange lost a legal bid on Tuesday to persuade the British authorities not to pursue any further action against him for breaching his bail conditions when he walked into the Ecuadorean embassy in 2012.
Judge Emma Arbuthnot upheld the right of the British authorities to pursue legal action against Assange in a judgment delivered at Westminster Magistrates Court in London.
