Wikileaks' Julian Assange Loses Final Extradition Appeal
The Supreme Court of Great Britain has denied the request of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to reconsider its May 30 order rejecting his appeal of a lower court's extradition order. A press release explaining the May 30 order is here.
Today's order is here. The extradition order takes effect 14 days from today. Assange could apply for relief to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in Strasbourg, but experts say it's unlikely he would prevail.
According to Fair Trials International, Assange is likely to be kept in pre-trial detention once he reaches Sweden.
