The Swedish government rejects the conclusions of a UN panel that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is held in "arbitrary detention."
Sweden says that "Assange, voluntarily, has chosen to stay at the Ecuadorian embassy and Swedish authorities have no control over his decision to stay there," Anders Ronquist, the Foreign Minsitry's head of legal affairs, writes to the UN panel.
The letter, dated Thursday, adds that Assange runs no "risk" of facing extradition to the United States and Sweden has not received such a request.
