Assange to remain in prison despite bail

Uk: Despite having being granted release on bail by the Westminster court, the founder of Wikileaks website Julian Assange should remain in jail at least for 48 hours in the wake of an appeal filed by Sweedish justice.

Following versions saying otherwise, Sweedish justice announced that it would appeal against the ruling of British Judge Howard Riddle, who granted a 23,000- euro bail to Assange under strict terms.

Assange’s lawyer Mark Stephens criticized Sweedish authorities for failing to comply with the judge’s ruling and said they would spare no expenses to keep his defendant in jail under alleged charges of sexual harassment and rape.

The Wikileaks founder recently revealed nearly 250,000 cables of the secret diplomatic mail of the US State Department and is embassies abroad, increasing US upset and persecution. In case his freedom on bail prospers, Assange is required to carry a GPS device and give his passport to police.

On January 11 he should appear again before the Westminster court to declare on his possible extradition to Sweden, as ruled by the British judge.

The hearing today was held amid a colossal campaign of solidarity and international demonstrations of widespread support.

Assange’s defence team think that the US government is using the accusations of the Sweedish attorney general’s office to pressure for his extradition and judge him in the wake of release of secret files compromising the White House and the Pentagon.

Assange, 39, denies charges made against him and describes them as dirty tricks in reprisal for his Wikileaks disclosures.
