Julian Assange goes out to the balcony of the Ecuadorian embassy in 2016.
Assange's lawyer Mark Summers had argued in court last week that the warrant had "lost its objective and its function".
Swedish prosecutors dropped the case past year, saying there was no prospect of bringing Assange to Sweden in the foreseeable future.
The Westminster Magistrates' Court will hold a hearing on Tuesday on the appeal of WikiLeaks whistleblowing website founder Julian Assange regarding the arrest warrant issued against him by the United Kingdom for breaching his former bail conditions.

Assange entered the embassy in June 2012 to dodge a European arrest warrant and extradition to Sweden over a 2010 probe in the Scandinavian country into rape and sexual assault allegations.
But Arbuthnot was still considering a further application from Assange's lawyers that the arrest warrant be scrapped on public interest grounds.
He said Assange had been living in conditions "akin to imprisonment" and his "psychological health" has deteriorated and was "in serious peril".
Arbuthnot said evidence handed to the court concerning Assange's medical problems included "a awful bad tooth, frozen shoulder and depression". When asked if a successful ruling could enable Assange to walk free, a spokesman for the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said, "Hypothetically yes, that would be our interpretation". "Therefore a warrant stands", Watkins said. Assange had stayed at the embassy, fearing that extradition to Sweden could lead to an extradition by the U.S. But even if the judge had dropped the British arrest warrant, WikiLeaks warned Assange could face life in prison in the United States on charges of espionage, conspiracy and theft related to WikiLeaks' publishing of secret USA government cables. British officials would be expected to take Assange into custody if there's a US indictment and extradition request.
