Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in awaiting for the final decision of his Sweden extradition at the London court on Thursday. The judgement regarding Assange will be passed by the Belmarsh Magistrates’ Court in south London later in the day. Assange who has been charged with three counts of sexual assault and one count of rape has clearly denied it.
According to his lawyers, Assange has been politically framed since he had exposed the US’s wrong doings in the Middle East. They also add, if Assange is sent to Sweden, he could possibly be sent to the US where is wanted for leaking government files and other information over the internet.
If Assange, in some way or the other, is sent to the United States he will surely face the death penalty or even a life sentence. Swedish authorities state, the evidence of the trail will be disclosed only in private and the arguments regarding the trail will be made in public.

Rudolf Elmer a former Swiss Bank employee has handed over the bank’s secrets to Wikileaks, the secrets are account details of more than 2000 account holders of the bank. What is now feared among the people, is this will surely depict something disturbing when published, and a new string of conspiracy will begin.
Rudolf is exactly a former employee of the Julius Baer bank, and has said that there are many business people and politicians who have tried to evade themselves from taxation in their respective countries, by channelling transactions through the Swiss Bank.
The former Julius Baer bank employee had also previously provided Wikileaks with secret information, and this time he wanted to expose the evil of financial transactions which takes place offshore.

Justice Duncan Ouseley was the man of law who presented Julian Assange a formal bail but has said that his movements will be kept under strict conditions. Assange was wearing a dark grey coloured suite in the court, and he had arrived in a white coloured prison van.
Justice Ouseley said “The history of the way it [the case] has been dealt with by the Swedish prosecutors would give Mr Assange some basis that he might be acquitted following a trial”. One of Assange’s lawyers stated that his bail amount has already reached the banking system to be processed. Assange has received his bail but will still be staying at the Wandsworth prison for at least one week, as the prosecutors would be receiving a notice of appeal.

Assange will need to stay in custody for at least two more days, as there are many famous people who are approaching the law to set him free.
What is interesting is that he will be collecting the whole bail amount in cash, and not via PayPal, MasterCard or even Visa, as he feels that they have stood against him in these recent days. These are the few names who are willing to secure the former Australian hacker’s release, people like Jemima Khan, Sarah Saunders, Director Ken Loach, novelist Tariq Ali etc. have come up to bring Assange out of Jail.
One of the most notable person’s who has shows a full determination to see Julian free is Sarah Saunders, a close friend of his, who is ready to pay around £150,000 of the £200,000 bail amount.

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange will be live on online and will be answering the questions of readers on the Guardian website. He will be chatting with them from 01.00 pm, and this is the first that it has happened that Assange has come to the public to speak to them about the current situation. He has perfectly timed his interview as his website and the US government are on a cyber war.
The US government wants to shut down his website as it has been exposing just too many documents in regards to the middle east wars, US Embassy and many more. He had released some 250,000 US Embassy cables earlier this week and as a matter of fact this has caused him big trouble.
Julian Assange is located in some undisclosed location in Europe and in one of his recent comments he has stated that he is indeed missing his own country, Australia, but he cannot return as there is an international warrant against him. We wish that he speaks and opens up more clearly regarding the ongoing cyber war with his website, and about some latest news about any new documents that he will be releasing on the web.

Since the moment Julian Assange’s website, Wikileaks, published 250,000 US classified documents internet, the United States and many other countries have condemned it. In addition to this, Assange is now strangely wanted in Sweden because he has been charged of rape and molestation, does all this state that Assange has actually committed a crime?
The US authorities have stated that they have started a ‘criminal investigation’ into this case and will try to contain the leaked documents on the web. Many other countries around the world are accusing him of posting classified documents on the web and this has now put many people’s lives in danger.
These documents have shown the world what the US actually is from the inside, and the government is openly criticizing these publishings, but why? Is the it wrong that the people around the world should know the truth and what the United States actually does behind close doors. Wikileaks has just exposed these files to public for they should know what is really happening around the world. Australia his own country has started a probe over him and it seems he wont be welcomed in his country too soon.

Controversial website WikiLeaks, owner Julian Assange has stated that the rape charges against him by the Swedish authorities are still not clear. Julian stated that the Swedish authorities have not told him the details of the crime that he has committed. Assange told CNN in an email that he has still not been informed with the details and the charges of the crime he has done.
Sweden’s authorities had arrested Assange in absentia, on the charges of molestation and rape. But then the court dropped his warrant and charges. Assange’s lawyer, Leif Silbersky, stated that Julian has strictly denied the charges on him.
