Wikileaks founder Julian Assange should be extradited to Sweden to face sexual assault allegations, a judge has ruled.
At Belmarsh Magistrates' Court in south London, District Judge Howard Riddle said the extradition would not breach Mr Assange's human rights.
Mr Assange will appeal against the court ruling. He denies three allegations of sexual assault and one of rape last August in Stockholm.

Looks like Sweden is fronting for the pro-corporate, anti-Wikileaks contingent.
How can we lean on Sweden? Get them to stop muckraking, drop their campaign?
The judge said he was confident Julian Assange was wanted in Sweden purely over sex assault allegations. His most critical comment toward the authorities was directed at Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt, whom he accused of "improper intervention".

Oh yes, I am fully aware of that, this latest case though, in my opinion, is the nail in the coffin for him (as far as the extradition being finalised).
