Red Notice: Interpol Adds Julian Assange to Wanted List
Interpol Issues Red Notice for Julian Assange
Interpol has added Wikileaks spokesman Julian Assange to its wanted list in relation to sex-crime charges filed against him in Sweden. Interpol issued a Red Notice for Julian Assange, which serves as a sort of international wanted poster. Interpol can only issue the Red Notice, but cannot force a nation's police force to carry out an arrest.

While Interpol makes it clear that its infamous Red Notice list does not function as an international arrest warrant, it does serve the purpose of broadcasting internationally that the person in question is a fugitive and can aide in extradition process.
Assange strongly denies any wrongdoing but admits having unprotected but consensual encounters with two women during a visit to Sweden in August.
