Assange can be extradited to Sweden: Court

2012-05-30 10:37

London - Britain's Supreme Court ruled on Wednesday that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange can be extradited to Sweden over alleged sex crimes, closing his final legal avenue of appeal in Britain.

"The request for Mr Assange's extradition has been lawfully made and his appeal against extradition is accordingly is dismissed," said Supreme Court president Nicholas Phillips.

    So Julian Assmassage(giggle) can be extradited to Sweden, but we are still waiting for Dewani?

      Julian is a legend... an Australian man who is listed in the top 100 most powerful people in the world. He hurts dirty governments and plans to expose more. His work and intentions are clear to get rid of the crap that rules our lands. It’s obvious why politically motivated sexual assault claims are imposed on him, most likely they paid a girl to seduce him and claim sexual assault against him. If the governments have so much to hide, they'll do anything to shut him. I love this guy, he has enough genius and balls to, in a single hand, become a threat to global powers. Why is there only one of him in that list of 100. The most pathetic off all is that governments go on to claim that ignorant citizens are happy citizens. That they shouldn't know certain things. I say !@%# you, we deserve the truth and someone needs to be responsible for their actions. Leaders can't claim power without accountability and responsibility. Go Julian.

      VanillySky - Preaching to the choir man. I also feel that the case is merely a false allegation. But he has to go back and face his day in court.

    Juian should be free to have as many one night stands as he likes. Female prostitutes do this all the time. As much as I know of this case it was made by a sour scorned woman. Will Sweden let him free when he gets off? This is about the USA and the diplomatic leaks which reveal so much about the arrogant, manipulative and power-drunk country.

    That's terrible. The UK courts fail to extradite Dewani, who had his own wife killed, but are able to send off a whistle blower who's ambition for truth is a threat to the puppet governments of the world.

      Nicholas.Spaggiari - 2012-05-30 15:51

      It goes to show that: Number 1. How threatened they are, and for good reason. Number 2. How the court is really a puppet show and the real people making judgments are evil bastards pulling the strings of cute pretty dolls.

    That was quick. British Supreme Court can be efficient when it wants to. What about Shrien Dewani's Extradition ????

      Margie, Never mind, he's got lots of cash, may be the non-sissy South Africans can sort him out with a bit of a Schabir Sheik medical condition. Or maybe you think it can be permitted to happen in SA and not anywhere else in the world, which is a disgraceful way to think.

      it was due to pressure from the US and her murderous allies..the rest of the free world should stop them from shooting the messenger.

    I hope News 24 will keep an eye on him after he goes to Sweden. An extradition to the USA would be a travesty of Justice. Let the sex case be finalised one way or the other in Sweden and then release him.(eventually)

      dane.herbst.5 - 2012-08-20 07:16

      im afraid i cant c that happening, the US will make sure he dissapears when they finally get their hands on him, i hope like hell they dont thought

  • - 2012-05-30 11:28

    Great news! Goodbye you miserable terrorist!

      dane.herbst.5 - 2012-08-20 07:16

      you must b a american fan

    To every one who is moaning about the americans and what they hide bla bla bla a simple quote " "We sleep safely in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm." Double standards again we want to be protected and kept safe but then are picky about how it is done.

      Fidel - 2012-05-30 12:51

      Some of us are not wussies who need protection from the big bad bogeyman, who comes during the night and steals children!

      Jason - 2012-05-30 13:01

      @fidel you really dont understand that quote at all do you? if you intellect is incapable of comprehending the statement then rather dont comment. the quote is a direct refference to the fact that the US army that is at the centre of these leaks has doen alot to protect people around the woirld. Im not sure when they steal children but save hostages in somalia, assist civilians in libya and are key in the hunting down of numerous terrorist organisations. But fidel thank you award for Knob of day has been awarded to you.

      Fidel - 2012-05-30 13:45

      If you think that the US army exists for your protection, you are delusional. The US army exists solely to project American Imperial power and to force its will among weaker nations. You have drunk too much kool aid!
