Assange hearing adjourned


The extradition hearing of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has been adjourned until 24th January. On the third day of the hearing defence lawyers for Assange claimed that comments made by the Swedish Prime Minister mean that their client is now viewed as “Public Enemy Number One” in Sweden and could not have a fair trial there.

The claims refers to remarks by Swedish PM Fredrik Reinfeldt in which he defended his country’s justice system against accusations of being ready to hand Assange over to US lawyers – who are currently studying what charges can be brought against him.

Meanwhile, ex-Wikileaks spokesman Daniel Domscheit-Berg is publishing his memoires of working with Wikileaks, in which he claims that Assange used to boast about his sexual conquests.
