Assange to take fight to Supreme Court
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has instructed his lawyers to appeal a request for his extradition by Swedish prosecutors to the Supreme Court.
Earlier this month the High Court rejected his bid to overturn a magistrate's decision to send him on a European arrest warrant to Stockholm where he is wanted for questioning over allegations of rape and sexual assault.
There were doubts over whether Mr Assange would continue his legal battle in Britain when it emerged he had taken on a Swedish PR company in preparation for any eventual move there.
His lawyers can only appeal to the Supreme Court on points of law of public importance. His request to appeal will be heard at the High Court on 5 December. If they refuse he can then ask the Supreme Court. If unsuccessful he could then be extradited within 10 days.
