Wikileaks boss Julian Assange blocked from reopening his extradition appeal
14 June 2012
The UK’s highest court has rejected a move by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to reopen his appeal against his extradition to Sweden where he faces sex crime allegations.
The announcement was made today by the Supreme Court.
It said in a statement that the required period for extradition “shall not commence until the 14th day after today”.
Seven Supreme Court justices unanimously dismissed the move as being “without merit”.
