Assange moves court

Hasan Suroor

LONDON: WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on Thursday appealed against last week's court order allowing his extradition to Sweden to face allegations of sexual misconduct brought by two Swedish women. Mr. Assange denies the allegations and says they are politically motivated.

His lawyers, who lodged the appeal in the High Court here, claimed that he would not get a fair trial in Sweden as rape cases there were heard behind closed doors. They also feared that if extradited to Sweden he could be handed over to Americans who want to prosecute him for publishing secret government documents.
