“The complaint, supporting affidavit, and arrest warrant, as well as this motion and the proposed order, would need to remain sealed until ASSANGE IS ARRESTED in connection with the charges in the criminal complaint and can no longer evade or avoid arrest and extradition for this matter.”
Assange could face trial over the leaking of hundreds of thousands of secret US military and diplomatic documents.
WikiLeaks said Thursday on Twitter, “All diplomats known to Assange have now been terminated or transferred away from the embassy.”
