Last chance but one

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Wikileaks spokesman Julian Assange has been granted an appeal hearing against his extradition to Sweden.

Assange is accused of sexual offences against two Wikileaks volunteers.

He will return to court 12 July for a two day hearing, PA reports. Should this appeal fail Assange could go to the Supreme Court, the newswire said.

In February Judge Howard Riddle ruled that the accusations were extraditable offences.

Assange said after that verdict that the hearing was no more than a rubber-stamping process and "the result of a European arrest warrant system run amok".

He has previously claimed that the charges were politically motivated and are aimed at getting him extradited to the US. ®
