A Swedish court made the request after he was added to the organization's 'wanted list' for the alleged sex crimes which reportedly happened earlier this year.

Assange has previously denied the accusations, with his attorney Mark Stephens branding them "false and without basis".

While his current whereabouts are unknown, Assange is facing growing legal problems around the globe, with Sweden, Australia and now the U.S. making aggressive legal moves against him.

Assange is also at the center of a criminal probe in his native country for a possible security breach in connection with Sunday's postings, which led New York Rep. Peter King to dub him a terrorist.
