And what case would that be? The case in Sweden was dropped for example.

The immediate one is breaking bail conditions.

Possibly extradition to the US over Wikileaks stuff, but no pubic application for that yet. But if he could be extradited from the UK to the US over Wikileaks, why would the US do the convoluted "extradite him to Sweden then on to the US from there" scheme that he claims was in progress? (ducks)

Reload the page, extradition confirmed.

I don't know if the rape case in Sweden can be reopened. But I suppose the US wants him in relation to the Russian election meddling investigation plus other cases and I suppose for him to be extradited he will first appear before a UK court.

There are obviously open cases as he has been arrested.

The statute of limitations expires in August 2020 so it can be reopened.

It wasn't dropped, the statute of limitations ran out because JA refused to be interviewed by the prosecutor and hid in an embassy.

No. He refused to leave the embassy for fear of extradition, but he invited prosecutors to interview him within the embassy.
