From Jurist:

The WikiLeaks co-founder breached bail conditions and sought refuge at the embassy in 2012 to avoid an arrest warrant [BBC timeline] from the Swedish Prosecutor's Office regarding two separate sexual assault claims.

Though prosecutors dropped the rape investigation into Assange last year, Judge Emma Arbuthnot stated that she is not persuaded that his current warrant for arrest should be withdrawn. Assange is still wanted [Telegraph report] for failing to appear at his bail address back in 2012.
