WikiLeaks’ Assange Dealt Blow; Moves Closer to Extradition

BERTIL ERICSON/AFP/Getty Images(LONDON) -- Another loss for Julian Assange in the British courts on Thursday put the WikiLeaks founder one step closer to being extradited to Sweden.

Assange's bid to re-open his extradition case has been shot down by Britain's Supreme Court, meaning he could now be flown to Sweden by the end of the month. This latest move effectively exhausts his options in Britain; his final recourse -- taking his case to the European Court of Human Rights.

The Wikileaks founder is wanted for questioning in Stockholm where two women have accused him of sexual misconduct. Assange has denied any wrongdoing.
