Yeah the headline just went up.

A judge in Britain is expected to rule Thursday on whether WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange should be extradited to Sweden. Assange has not been charged with a crime, but Swedish prosecutors want to question him in connection with sexual misconduct allegations related to separate incidents in August.


Very interesting way of putting it.

This is really sad, has i remember a while back when asange was in sweden, that the lawer that was representing the 2 girls, said that in no way was there going to be acusation towards mr assange, he was able to leave the country, and this was on the cbc, just your normal canadian television, and now this lol, its really fixed, well i think.

Mr Assange will appeal against the High Court ruling, delivered at Belmarsh Magistrates' Court, south London, following a hearing two weeks ago. The 39-year-old denies three allegations of sexual assault and one of rape last August in Stockholm. Mr Assange says the claims are politically motivated because of the work of his whistle-blowing website.

Unfortunately the clock is ticking for Assange.

He could face a legal system which tends to carry out these cases behind closed doors meaning imprisonment for a number of years.

Should he somehow get past that, he still faces extradition to the US where he could face the death penalty for Wikileaks - a complete farce.

If he is truly is guilty of the Swedish assaults then yes, justice needs to be served, but I'm unconvinced and think all this is a way to silence him and destroy Wikileaks.
