Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange is to remain in prison when his jail term ends because of his "history of absconding", a judge has ruled.
He was due to be released on 22 September after serving his sentence for breaching bail conditions.
But Westminster Magistrates' Court heard there were "substantial grounds" for believing he would abscond again.
The Australian, 48, is fighting extradition to the US over allegations of leaking government secrets.
Julian Assange to stay in prison over absconding fears

The man has served the sentence handed down in court and now he's kept in prison beyond his sentence because he might abscond to avoid an extradition that has not yet been agreed - or maybe this is to do with the case in Sweden??

The decision by the judge to keep Julian locked up gave me yet another reason to be disgusted by my country ,

Please list this long track record. From what I remember the only thing he's done is seek political asylum in Ecuador
Um. Assange escaped rape charges in Sweden, thus avoided the due process of law. He then tried to avoid legal process in England over his bail charge, which was dismissed, but he remained in the Ecuadorian Embassy, thus frustrating the due process law.

Let me see your behavior when you get accused of "rape" and a witch hunt is started, while you know you did not rape anyone.

Not sure how anyone on ATS could still support trump if he doesn't try to help Assange out after constantly praising him for helping expose hillary.
Will Trump let assange rot and be a hypocrite?
Yes I lean myself out of the window here but looking at the "records" of those women, my impression is this was a setup.
