Assange court to rule on extradition over sex claims

Britain's Supreme Court is due to rule Wednesday on whether WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange should be extradited to Sweden to face interrogation on sexual assault allegations against him.

The decision will mark the end of Assange's second and final appeal in Britain against an extradition order handed down in February 2011.

Two women in Sweden accused Assange in August 2010 of sexually assaulting them during a visit to the country in connection with WikiLeaks' release in summer 2010 of internal U.S. military documents.

WikiLeaks' work is not at issue in the extradition hearing or the Swedish allegations against Assange.

    A besieged man he is indeed.
    I wonder how all this would end for him. What's happening to the Pope's butler who it appears committed the same sin. Is that as big as Wikileaks ( it concerns the Vatican after all)?
