to move before the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom
Wikileaks boss Julian Assange continues to fight against his
extradition to Sweden. He now wants to move before the Supreme Court
of the United Kingdom and to appeal against the verdict of the London
High Court. He had already announced this after the verdict was
announced early November 2011.
The London High Court had decided in early November 2011, that Assange
can be extradited to Sweden where he will be interrogated for alleged
sexual offenses. The court rejected an appeal to the Wikileaks bosses
against the verdict in the first instance by the end of February
Assange draws in the UK so all legal means against his extradition to
Sweden. Negotiated so that the case before the Supreme Court is,
however, he must establish that his case is of public importance. If
the judges accept his reasoning, would the Supreme Court dealing with
the case, writes the British daily The Guardian.
On the admissibility of the objection must first decide on the High
Court. The hearing is for the 5th December 2011 set. If the court
rejects the application of Assange, he would be delivered within ten
days in Sweden.
The allegations against the Wikileaks founders were known in
mid-August 2010th Two women display reimbursed against him for sexual
harassment and rape. In December 2010, he introduced himself to the
police in London, after having issued a European arrest warrant
against him. After a short time in custody he stands on the estate of
a supporter in the East of England under house arrest.
Assange had always rejected the charges and a conspiracy against him
and the unveiling of Wikileaks said. He fears that he could be
extradited from Sweden to the United States and prosecuted there
because of his activities at Wikileaks. Wikileaks had published, among
other things as unclassified U.S. material on the wars in Afghanistan
and Iraq as well as confidential U.S. embassy dispatches.
