Assange wins latest round in extradition fight

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will be allowed to appeal against extradition to Sweden on sex allegations, the British High Court announced Monday, according to CNN. Assange said he was “thankful” for the decision. “The High Court has decided that an issue that arises from my own case is of general public importance and may be of assistance” in other cases, he said in brief remarks after the ruling. The case now moves to the Supreme Court. Assange is accused of sexually assaulting two women in Sweden in August 2010.
