Julian Assange can be extradited to Sweden

43478.jpegA British judge has ruled that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange can be extradited to Sweden to face allegations of sex crimes.

Swedish authorities have not charged him, but want to question Assange about accusations of sexual misconduct made by two women last August.

Assange has denied any wrongdoing, Voice of America reports.

After the hearing, Assange's lawyer, Mark Stephens, said his client would appeal the decision and take the matter to the European Court of Human Rights if necessary.

He attacked the judge's decision, saying ''it reaffirms the concerns that we had about the form of tick-box justice that is the EU Arrest Warrant''. He added: ''What the judge has done is confirm that the system is just that.'', The Age informs.
