Assange was arrested on Thursday at Ecuador'sLondon embassy on allegations of skipping bail, and on a USA extradition warrant related to a huge leak of official documents.
Julian Assange's mother has taken to Twitter to call on authorities to be gentle with her son, who's jailed in London after his removal from the Ecuadorian Embassy.
The comments came after more than 70 Parliamentarians signed a letter to Home Secretary Sajid Javid urging the Government to ensure Assange faces Swedish authorities if they request his extradition.
Sweden suspended its investigation of serious sexual misconduct two years ago because Assange was beyond their reach while taking refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.
Mr Assange now faces the possibility of extradition to the United States, where he has been indicted on a conspiracy charge in connection with his interactions with Ms Manning.
"We urge you to stand with the victims of sexual violence and seek to ensure the case against Mr Assange can now be properly investigated".
More than 70 parliamentarians wrote to the home secretary, and the shadow Home sScretary Diane Abbott, urging them to prioritise the outstanding charge over the U.S. charges relating to Wikileaks' activities.

OK?
In a statement issued on Friday, his legal team confirmed he would resist the extradition that sets a "dangerous precedent where any journalist could face U.S. charges for publishing truthful information about the United States".
The Department of Justice charged Assange with taking part in a computer hacking conspiracy, accusing him of scheming with Chelsea Manning, a former Army intelligence analyst, to break a password for a classified government computer. WikiLeaks has denied those allegations, arguing that Moreno was attempting to deflect attention from corruption allegations against him.
At Thursday's hearing, judge Michael Snow described Assange as a "narcissist" and said he could consent to the extradition and "get on with your life". He feared that if he was taken to Sweden, he would be handed to the USA authorities.
