No bail for Julian Assange

The founder of Wikileaks turned himself in to the British police on Tuesday morning.

Bail was refused and he will remain in custody until 14 December. Assange is accused of sexually assaulting two women in Sweden.

The Swedish courts have passed on to British authorities a new international arrest warrant against Julian Assange. The founder of Wikileaks has preferred to take the lead in presenting himself at Scotland Yard yesterday morning. He was then arrested and detained before being presented in the afternoon with a judge.

When the judge asked him if he understood he could consent to his extradition, Julian Assange answered: “I understand but I do not consent.”

Julian Assange supporters fear that the U.S. will take advantage of the situation to launch proceedings against him and try to obtain his extradition. Shortly before the hearing, Wikileaks posted a message on Twitter to say that the arrest of its leader did not change anything. “Today’s actions against our editor Julian Assange not affect our operations. We will publish new cable tonight as planned.”

The site has suffered two new setbacks with the consecutive decisions on Monday night and on Tuesday morning from MasterCard and Visa to prevent the use of their payment system to send donations to Wikileaks.

On the sidelines of the case, the popularity of Julian Assange seems to be growing. In the US, he occupies first position in a top made by Time magazine for Person of the Year. He has surpassed the 280 000 votes, ahead of Turkish Prime Minister and Lady Gaga.
