Julian Assange sets out bid to appeal extradition to Sweden

Life is so unfair

Lawyers representing WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange lodged papers at the UK's High Court this morning, in an effort to appeal against his extradition to Sweden.

A spokeswoman told The Register that the High Court had received the papers but added that "no date was set, and no guidance has been issued."

Last week it was recommended by a judge at South East London's Belmarsh magistrates court that Assange should be extradited to Sweden to face questions regarding two alleged sexual assaults in the country.

The 39-year-old Australia-born WikiLeaker-in-chief was given seven days to bring an appeal against extradition.

Judge Howard Riddle said during the ruling that the allegations of rape and sexual molestation brought by two women against Assange were extraditable offences.

Assange was granted bail, following the ruling, after his lawyers secured funds understood to total £200,000.

The WikiLeaks founder said the decision was "the result of a European arrest warrant system run amok". ®
