Britain Grants Request to Extradite Assange

Hugh Pickens writes writes "The NY Times reports that a British court has ordered Julian Assange to be extradited to Sweden to face accusations of sexual abuse. His lawyers have seven days to appeal the ruling and immediately indicated that they would so. Judge Howard Riddle, in his ruling, said that allegations brought by two women qualified as extraditable offenses and that the warrant seeking Mr. Assange’s return to Sweden for questioning was valid. Judge Little says that if there have been abuses in Sweden, “the right place for these to be examined and remedied is in the Swedish trial system.”"
