British police have said they still plan to arrest WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange if he leaves the Ecuadorean Embassy in London.

Police said Thursday that earlier announced plans to take Assange into custody on an outstanding arrest warrant were still in place.

That announcement was made in October when police removed the round-the-clock guard at the embassy, but said overt and covert means would still be used against Assange.

He is wanted by Swedish authorities for questioning on allegations of sexual misconduct.

A U.N. panel is to rule Friday on whether the treatment of Assange has been fair. (AP)
