Assange challenges extradition ruling

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange yesterday asked the High Court to block his “legally flawed” extradition to Sweden over sexual assault allegations, ‘The Telegraph’ reported. Lawyers for Julian Assange challenged a ruling by District Judge Howard Riddle at Belmarsh Magistrates’ Court in south London that extradition should go ahead. Ben Emmerson QC, appearing for Assange, told two judges the European arrest warrant on which he was being held was flawed because it failed to provide “a fair, accurate and proper” description of the alleged sexual misconduct.
