Today, Britain’s supreme court made a decision concerning the extradition of Julian Assange the founder of Wikileaks. The verdict, which Lord Phillips the president of the supreme court handed down just moments ago is not a good one for the world renowned hacker. The court ruled against the internet guru In a majority decision of five to two and now Assange is expected to be extradited to Sweden. On the brighter side, the judge did grant Assange a two week stay so his legal team can make an application to reopen the case. Assange himself was not in court.
Since Assanges detention, the popular hacktivist has been living at a country mansion in eastern England under strict guidelines very similar to house arrest. He has been fighting nasty sexual assault allegations since 2010. Aside from his legal troubles of late, Assange is best known for leaking thousands of military documents and videos to the public.
