The Swedish Prosecution Authority has confirmed it has compiled a list of questions in line with the legal case against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, but will take at least two weeks for them to be delivered, a source in the Prosecution Authority told Sputnik on Tuesday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Last week, a UN Panel ruled that Assange was "arbitrarily detained," should be released and paid compensation. Both the United Kingdom and Sweden are seeking Assange’s arrest.

Assange applied for asylum at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London in 2012 after a British court permitted his extradition for sexual assault accusations. The assault claims were later dropped. Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy ever since.

"Yes, it is correct. The prosecutor doesn’t want to give any details, but she is currently working on it [questions to Assange]. She needs to compile the list of questions and then it needs to be translated into Spanish, that will be at least a couple of weeks," the source said.

The whistleblower has repeatedly expressed concern over his extradition to the United States by Stockholm that would follow his removal to Sweden.
