A UN panel is sticking by its opinion that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is a victim of arbitrary detention, rejecting a request by Britain to review the case.

The panel made the decision at a meeting last week, the UN human rights office said today.
Assange fears he could be sent to the United States over secret-spilling by WikiLeaks.
