The founder of Wikileaks and the man behind the quarter of a million cable leaks from the US embassy is now wanted by Interpol for alleged sex crimes.

The news comes only days after the information was released and 39-year-old Julian Assange has been added to the international police organisation’s “wanted” list for sex crimes under an arrest warrant issued by the International Public Prosecution Office in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Interpol became involved after the Swedish authorities issued their own international warrants last month, according to the Telegraph.
