WIKILEAKS founder Julian Assange has been told by a judge he should go to court like everyone else and face the charges against him.
Judge Abuthnot said his failure to surrender was deliberate and impeded the course of justice.
In a stinging attack on Mr Assange, she said he appeared to "consider himself above the normal rules of law".
She said: "Having weighed up the factors for and against and considered Mr Summers' arguments I find arrest is a proportionate response even though Mr Assange has restricted his own freedom for a number of years.
"Defendants on bail up and down the country, and requested persons facing extradition, come to court to face the consequences of their own choices. He should have the courage to do so too."
