Julian Assange loses extradition appeal

Julian Assange: “We will be considering our next step”

Julian Assange has lost his high court extradition appeal.

The Guardian reports that Assange has lost the fight against extradition to Sweden to face rape and secual assault allegations. Assange remains on bail pending a decision on a further appeal. The judges dismissed arguments that the warrant was invalid and that the descriptions of the alleged offenses were unfair and inaccurate. The court also ruled that the issuing of the warrant and subsequent proceedings were “proportionate.”

Assange told the crowd, “We will be considering our next step.” Assange’s lawyers will take 14 days to decide whether to seek the right to appeal the supreme court.

Assange added, “No doubt there will be many attempts made to try to spin these proceedings as they occured today but they were merely technical. So please go to swedenversusassange.com if you wish to know what is really going on in this case.”

At the aforementioned site, users can download a copy of the judgment and a summary of the case.

Assange’s extradition stems from accusations that he raped and sexually assaulted two women in Sweden in 2010.

  1. I simply want to say I am just beginner to blogging and site-building and seriously liked you’re web blog. More than likely I’m planning to bookmark your site . You really come with excellent writings. Thanks for revealing your web site.

  2. I have a small background in magazine journalism but my new job requires no writing at all, except for emails. . . I would like to start doing some creative writing but I don’t know where to start, as in, what do I write about, and whether it’s actually worth bothering with or not. I’d probably be more inclined to do it if there was a competition or group I could join online or something like that. . . Does anyone do any writing or their own, if so, how did you get started? And what have you gotten out of it?.
