#Assande #Sweden : Assange To be Put On Ice In Sweden !

Last month a Swedish prosecutor, Marianne Ny, raised the possibility that, after first dealing with allegations of sexual misconduct, Assange could be extradited from Sweden to the United States.

He could be indicted by a grand jury meeting in secret near Washington D.C. to consider charges against him related to the publication of leaked American military and diplomatic documents. The Swedish prosecutor expressed little qualm flagging the extradition a non-European Union national to a non-EU jurisdiction. Assuming that the United Kingdom (being the country that surrendered Assange) consents. And it must consent - otherwise there can be no extradition.

Mark Stephens, one of Assange's London lawyers, has often expressed his fear to Al Jazeera that Assange would be travelling to Stockholm to do no more than to change planes for a fateful flight to Washington. But an associate at his practice, Jennifer Robinson, told Salon (an American online news site) that the existence of a grand jury was still "purely speculation.",,read more

#Assange #Wikileaks : Updates :Ludlam To Back Assange At Lonfon Appeal

West Australian Greens senator Scott Ludlam said he was concerned Prime Minister Julia Gillard and Attorney-General Robert McClelland had gone completely silent on the issue after initially pronouncing him guilty when he was first arrested.

"I think that's the most dangerous thing," Senator Ludlam told AAP on Thursday.

Mr Assange will face court in London on December 5 when his appeal on his extradition to Sweden to face questioning over claims of sexual assault against two women will be heard.
Senator Ludlam said he planned to attend the hearing in support of Mr Assange.

He questioned whether the federal government had failed to fully protect Mr Assange.

Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd appeared to be doing his job by activating the consular network available to Australian citizens for Mr Assange, but had deferred questions relating to the WikiLeaks founder's extradition to Sweden to Mr McClelland.

Senator Ludlam took his questions to Prime Minister Julia Gillard's office on Thursday, calling on her to clarify if the matter was raised with President Barack Obama or his delegation during the presidential visit to Australia.

He also asked if the Attorney-General's Department had used its powers to spy on WikiLeaks or its people.

"Will the Australian Government prevent Mr Assange being further extradited from Sweden to the United States for doing what the media have always done, which is bring to light material that governments would prefer to keep secret?"

#Sweden vs #Assange - Justice Will Prevail !

#Wikileaks #Assange #Extradition ...

London’s High Court has ruled WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange should be extradited from the United Kingdom to Sweden to face questioning over alleged sex crimes. Swedish authorities want to question Assange over accusations of rape and sexual assault made by two women. Assange’s lawyers have argued the Swedish demand is legally flawed and that the sex was consensual. They are now considering an appeal to Supreme Court of the United Kingdom and the European Court of Human Rights. Julian Assange spoke outside the court room after the ruling.
Julian Assange: "I have not been charged with any crime in any country. Despite this, the European arrest warrant is so restrictive that it prevents U.K. courts from considering the facts of a case, as judges have made clear here today. We will be considering [inaudible] step in the days ahead. The full judgment will be available on No doubt, there will be many attempts made to try and spin these proceedings as they occur today, but they are merely technical.
So please go to  if you want to know what’s really going on in this case. Thank you."
