Assange to Sweden in 14-24
What happens now?
STOCKHOLM/LONDON (Rixstep) — The UK Supreme Court rejected the appeal by Julian Assange to reopen his case. Assange's appeal was submitted 12 June; the 18-page rejection came less than two days later.
14 Days Then 10
Julian Assange will be extradited to Sweden in a ten day period beginning in two weeks - sometime between 29 June and 9 July.
1 Year 190 Days
Julian Assange has now been held in house arrest with an electronic ankle bracelet and strict curfew for 555 days or 1 year 190 days. This includes the 10 days he spent in solitary confinement in Wandsworth prison.
Worst Remand in Europe?
Swedish remand prisons have come under continual attack from human rights organisations. But Assange will be immediately placed in prison, he will have no opportunity for bail, and will otherwise be subject to the following conditions.
- Confinement to cell for no more than 23 hours per day
- No visits from anyone save legal counsel
- Restrictions on phone calls and written correspondence
- Limited contact with other detainees
- No access to newspapers, radio, television, Internet
A rally for Julian Assange is scheduled at the UK consulate in Melbourne 15 June.
