There were some eyewitnesses, who twittered. In resume:
Julian Assange is held in custody until Dec 14.
Ken Loach, Jemima Khan and John Pilger offered to pay the bail (20000 pound each), but the judge rejected it. Another source even talked about 180000
quid on the table.
Pilger called it a politically motivated travesty.
The charges are now specified: "sex by surprise" means, she slept, when he started without a condom, "rape" means, he held her arms and forced sex
with a condom.
Assange said, he refuses photos, fingerprints and DNS samples during arrest.
The judge refused the bail, because Assange has no significant ties to UK and lives in a nomadic way.
