Early this morning , Justice Ouseley (the justice in charge of the Wikileaks founder Julian Assange's court case) upheld the decision to grant Julian Assange bail, according to Sky News. Spectators claim cheers commenced outside the courtroom when the decision was announced. The judge acknowledged that Assange has co-operated with the Swedish authorities over the allegations he faces. Assange's lawyer Mark Stephens expects him to be free today. Assange will make a statement then, Stephens said. Stephens also claimed the worst case scenario would be that Assange may not be free until tomorrow. Assange will now have to follow a strict set of bail conditions, including wearing an electronic tag, staying at a specific address in eastern England, reporting to police every evening and observing two four hour curfews each day.
