The legal pressure on Julian Assange and WikiLeaks is mounting. The founder of WikiLeaks has governments all over the world calling for his arrest after the release of thousands of classified US documents.

Interpol has issued a so-called 'red notice' alerting its members to arrest Assange on rape charges in an unrelated case filed against him in Sweden.

It comes as Washington mulls over its options on how to press charges against WikiLeaks for revealing confidential US diplomatic cables.

In this show we ask: How long can Julian Assange hide? And under what law can he be prosecuted?

Joining the programme are Phyllis Bennis, a fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies; David Cole, the managing director of the Atlantic Council in the UK; and Ian Brown, a senior research fellow at the Oxford Internet Institute.

This episode of Inside Story aired from Wednesday, December 1, 2010.
