Judge says WikiLeaks' Assange can be extradited

Feb 24, 2011 6:35:00 AM - thestate.com
A British judge says WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange can be extradited to Sweden over sex crimes claims.

Judge Howard Riddle says the allegations of rape and sexual molestation by two women are extraditable offenses and a Swedish warrant was properly issued.

Lawyers for Assange have a week to appeal Thursday's decision.

Riddle says "there is simply no reason to believe there has been a mistake" in issuing the warrant.

Assange has been out on bail during the extradition fight.
