Wikileaks founder Julian Assange lost his final appeal to avoid extradition to Sweden in London today, after a legal battle of 11 months. He has sexual abuse charges against him by harassing two women in Sweden in August 2010.
Assange was arrested on December 7, 2010 in London at the request of Swedish authorities, shortly after the world’s major newspapers had published 250 000 confidential U.S. diplomatic cables, which caused problems to governments around the world.
Assange enjoyed bail by what had happened the last few months at his mansion in Norfolk as he continued his trial.
The Australian computer has a period of 14 days to appeal the decision to the Supreme Court. “We will reflect on next steps in the coming days,” he told reporters.
