[Updated at 10:05 a.m.] Julian Assange has been refused bail by a U.K. court and remanded until December 14th.
[Updated at 9:46 a.m.] WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange refused in court Tuesday to give his consent to be extradited to Sweden.
[Posted at 8:32 a.m.] WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested Tuesday on a Swedish warrant, London's Metropolitan Police said.
Assange was arrested at a London police station at 9:30 a.m. and will appear at the City of Westminster Magistrate's Court at 2 p.m., police said. Swedish authorities had issued the warrant for Assange so they can talk to him about sex-crime allegations unrelated to WikiLeaks' recent disclosure of secret U.S. documents.
At court, Assange will be able to respond to the arrest warrant, and the court will then have roughly 21 days to decide whether to extradite him, said Mark Ellis, executive director of the International Bar Association.
Even though the Swedish warrant is a European arrest warrant designed for easy transfer of suspects among European states, Assange may still choose to fight it - something his London lawyer has promised to do, according to the Press Association.
If the court does decide to allow his extradition, Assange will be allowed to appeal that decision, too, elongating the legal process, Ellis said.
This guy had better be afraid. He's going to have a tough time in prison. Too many governments have it out for his blood, I give him a week before he gets assassinated.
This is like matrix. Nobody escapes! We all are in the same silicon 😛
And America has to choose the blue pill or the red pill 😀
This is a scary eye opening confirmation that WE THE PEOPLE should read WE THE SHEOPLE.
I wonder whats gonna happen to a rapist in jail, hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Good.
The CIA didn't move it's world headquaters to Denver to go after the likes of Assange and BinLaden. When you get a knock on your door instead of a letter from the IRS, perhaps then people will understand how governments work. p.s....if you look thru your peephole and two men wearing black suits and dark sunglasses are standing there you might wish you had not cheated Uncle Sam last April 15th. Then pack your bags cuz yer headed for one of our illustrious homeland security prisons, aka FEMA camps. Obviously they weren't constructed to "house the tens of thousands of terrorists" Congress told you about before authorizing funds for their immediate construction.
Lets hope he commits suicide voluntaily or otherwise
Did everyone forget?
Dick Cheney released "sensitive information" when he outed Valery Plame.
And all those twits sending money to support wiki are going to be looked at very closely
And we'll be looking closely right back.
@Lelent...these brainwashed morons thinl Plame was a paper pusher for the CIA to this very day. They are totally clueless about the most significant part she played in exposing government "national security" during it's pre-war phase. She was totally shafted. worse than Assange will ever be. Assange is just another citizen. plame was much more.
AS WITH MANY INTELLECTUALS...IT IS A GAME OF CHESS...MAYBE ASSANGE DEAD OR ALIVE... IT IS CHECKMATE! MY GUESS IS ASSANGE COVERED THAT SCENARIO AHEAD OF TIME...AND NOW SOON IT WILL BE CHECKMATE! IF IT WASNT HIM MORE WOULD FOLLOW LOOKING TO EXPOSE THE TRUTH. FOR OPPOSITE OF TRUTH IS LIES!
