I strongly strongly doubt Julian is a flight risk, there is already a Code Red out on him through Interpol. Julian Assange does not strike me as a man without conviction or conscience.
The founder of whistle-blowing website Wikileaks, Julian Assange, has been granted bail in London on conditions including cash guarantees of £240,000. But he will remain in prison pending an appeal against the bail decision lodged by Swedish prosecutors.

I was under the impression Assange was the one who requested a solitary cell. This was also so he could get limited computer access, unless the details changed since they were released.
A court can confiscate a passport if the person they are dealing with is not a citizen of that country, and has the means / resourcea available to flee the country. If he were a citizen of the UK they could still collect his passport again if he has the resources or means to flee the country.
The attacks on private business by wikileaks supporters runs contrary to their stated goals. Its the act of a bunch of cowards to go after business who choose not to support Assange and his goal. Please provide evidence that these business were "forced" to shut down anything related to Assange.
It cracks me up that people will bitch about illegal actions of the US Government, yet justify ilegal actions in support of their own cause.
Assange is a twit who needs to go to jail a long time for his crimes, either for the sex crims or the illegal release of classified information. Anyone hacking into business on behalf of Asshat, err assange, should be charged as well for their criminal actions.
Telling the world is he is arrested he will release the insurance file password - By all means lets add some more charges onto it, namely blackmail / extortion.
How stupid do people have to be to to make an argument about law violations and how wrong it is, then turn around and do the exact same thing. While I beleive wikileaks supports these acts by people attacking companies, at least they are smart enough to deny knowing about it or asking for it, since it would move the charges into the realm of conspiracy.
Indeed. I've been a victim of the changing info the OP has mentioned.

He's not out though, and won't be for another 48 hours, and even then he won't get out if the Swedish appeal is successful. As of this moment he is still in HMP Butlins hotel.

Yep.. When I posted he was set to be released. Then it was announced Sweden could appeal. Then it was announced they weren't going to. Then it was announced there was a big error in communication that turned out to be that they WOULD in face appeal. So who knows now.
