ASSANGE TO APPEAL EXTRADITION RULING

WIKILEAKS founder Julian Assange should be extradited to Sweden to face sexual offence allegations, a judge ruled yesterday. The extradition under a European Arrest Warrant to face one charge of rape and three of sexual assault would not breach Assange’s human rights, the judge said. Assange said the decision was a rubberstamping process but was nonetheless wrong. He will appeal the ruling.
