Iam not really suprised, We don't know what happened and hopefully it will be sorted out once and for all.
If you'r innocent JA good luck if not well you will get what you deserve.
Good to see that people have not forgot about Bradley Manning personally I think this guy deserves a medal.
Does anyone know if he is still in solitary confinement still?

I was actually surprised he bothered fighting it..

Would have been better to have gotten it over with..
I really don't believe that they have much of a case anyways.

The only interest will be in watching what the US does..

The insurance password MUST be released no matter what happens to JA. Humanity, justice and peace first!

Next stage, is the UK Supreme court, then the European Court of Human rights.

One can only, hope the UK Supreme courts will overturn this ruling.

If not the US Authorities will be rubbing their hands gleefully. At the thought of having him extradited to the US and also to have him silenced for good.

If I was him, I would take this case all the way, to the European Courts Of Human rights. Prolong the extradition. You never know, the European courts do come out with some weird rulings nowadays. They might just vote in his favor.

He continues to have a lot of support on his side also.

At least it will keep the US Authorities paws off him for now.

On what charge though.?

Yes the US would love to get their hands on him but even the great USA needs to prove that he is actually guilty of an offense first and believe me, they have tried to find something but can't..

Well not without arresting every newspaper editor in the world at the same time..

If he ends up in the US after this, my country seriously needs to tear up the current extradition treaties we have with every country. Then all the judges need to be prosecuted under the ECHR, lets get the thing working for the people not against them

On leaking Sensitive Information for one. With regards to US National Security,




The latest batch of documents to be released by Wikileaks is made up of diplomatic messages sent from US embassies around the world.

The whistle-blowing website says it has obtained more than 250,000 cables passed between the US State Department and hundreds of American diplomatic outposts - but it has so far only published a small sample of those messages


BBC News

Every stage he looses his appeals process, the easier it will be for the US Authorities to, launch their extradition case, to Sweden, after all Sweden does have the same extradition treaty, as the UK does when it comes to the US, as well as the E.U.

I fear if he is sent back to Sweden, it will be a staging process for him to be transferred to the US. Or again to get him over there so they can silence him for good.

he wasn't in solitary confinement. I watch 60 Minutes (god forbid the MSM!!) and he was living on some posh estate.

and I don't now, nor did I ever buy his "altruistic" stance

So lets see what he's got.

He was released out on Bail, a lot of his supporters put up the bail money for him to be released. He was meant to be restricted to where he was living. But obviously he did not stay put.

Then as I stated, they would have to arrest hundreds of other newspaper employees that also printed the same leaked information..

Let's remember that Julian Assange is a card holding journalist and he did NOT personally steal any documents..

He merely printed them as did hundreds of other media outlets..

i think that will only happen if he is put on a plane to the US.

this is a trip to sweden.
he has 14 days to appeal this. it may not happen.
he hasn't even been charged on anything yet.

Exactly but they, class Assange as the main instigator along side the US Military Individual who passed the information along to him and Wiki-leaks. Bigger fish to fry, that is why his lawyers state he would not receive a fair trial in the US if extradited over there.

To say that this case has anything to do with the alleged rape, sexual assault charges is being mislead by the Prosecution in Sweden. The First case against him was dropped, since there were no case to answer to. The another Prosecutor came along, and decided to pursue the charges against him.

Seems to be more to this case than we are being told.

The only way Journalists in other newspaper's could be arrested if it is proven under UK Libel laws that the broke them. If it is proven then they would have a case to answer to. If no Libel laws were broken then they would not have to face any charges.
