Julian Assange is due to find out whether he can take an appeal against the decision to extradite him to the United States to the Supreme Court. Assange, 50, is wanted in America over an alleged conspiracy following WikiLeaks’ publication of hundreds of thousands of leaked documents relating to the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. In December last year, US authorities won their High Court challenge to overturn a ruling that Assange should not be extradited due to a real and ‘oppressive’ risk of suicide. Assange’s fiancée, Stella Moris, called the High Court’s decision ‘dangerous and misguided’ and said the WikiLeaks founder’s lawyers intended to bring an appeal to the Supreme Court. For a proposed appeal to be considered by the UK’s highest court, a case has to raise a point of law of ‘general public importance.’
