Julian Assange will appeal judge’s extradition ruling

Smaller crowds turned out for Julian Assange’s extradition judgement today in south London than have been present for his other recent appearances, the BBC notes 24 February. The judge’s decision to allow Assange to be extradited to Sweden to face investigations into sexual assault charges against the founder of WikiLeaks was a foregone conclusion, Assange said afterwards, and he intends to appeal.
