LONDON. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will find out tomorrow whether he will be extradited from Britain to Sweden, as the Supreme Court hands down its judgement after a marathon legal battle.
Britain's highest court is the 40-year-old Australian's final avenue of appeal under British law, having been detained in December 2010 on a European arrest warrant. He is wanted in Sweden for questioning over allegations of rape and sexual assault.
Since then he has been through round upon round of legal battles, culminating in what will be a short ruling at the Supreme Court in central London.
The judgment, expected to take around 10 minutes, will be handed down at 6.15pm Melbourne time.
