Assange warned after late report to police
Police have issued a warning to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange after he showed up late for his court-ordered daily check-in.
- The WikiLeaks founder checked in with police after a 5 p.m. deadline
- Assange must report to authorities daily as a condition of his bail
- He could be arrested if he misses another deadline, constabulary says
(CNN) -- Police have issued a warning to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange after he showed up late for his court-ordered daily check-in with British authorities while on bail.
"Julian Assange has been given a verbal warning after reporting for bail outside the agreed time," the Norfolk Constabulary told CNN. "He has been reminded he could be arrested should it happen again."
Assange's website, which facilitates the leaking of secret information, has released hundreds of thousands of pages of U.S. military and diplomatic documents over the past eight months. Prosecutors in Sweden want him for questioning in connection with sexual misconduct allegations unrelated to WikiLeaks.
Assange has denied the allegations, and is free on 200,000 pounds ($310,000) bail while he fights extradition. He must stay at the mansion of a supporter outside London, report to police between 2 and 5 p.m. daily, and wear an electronic tag to monitor his location.
