COURTS FINDINGS THUS FAR

3.00pm: We doubt whether this actual category of rape would be rape under English law, Robertson told the court, according to Mostrous. (This is the weirdest way to report court proceedings. Why don’t they televise it and have done with it?)

2.57pm: Sarah Saunders, a restaurant designer and friend of Assange, signs document, offering £150,000 as surety, writes Vikram Dodd. She says it is almost all the money she has.

2.51pm: It looks likely that Assange will be granted bail, Vikram Dodd predicts from the court.

He adds: “Over £200,000 offered in surety for bail. Court told ten international public figures also offering surety. Court asks one of them to sign [bail] document.”

2.46pm: Vaughan Smith, from the Frontline club, has been put forward as someone offering surety. As expected Assange’s barrister Geoffrey Robertson says an electronic tag could be placed on Assange if he is bailed. He also offers a curfew, and travel restrictions, according to Mostrous.

Robertson jokes that Assange would be under “mansion arrest” if he was bailed to Vaughan Smith’s house, Mostrous tweets.

2.34pm: Unfortunately we can’t set up an automatic feed for Alexi Mostrous’s Twitter feed. Unlike Heather he works for someone else.

Here’s his three latest tweets:

pros counsel: “The court has already found that mr Assange is a flight risk and its submitted that nothing has changed”

Judge says: “the stronger the case, the more likely the defendant is to abscond, the weaker the case, the less likely.”

Pros counsel says: “In bail applications under extradition act strength of evidence ought not to be primary focus.”pros counsel: “The court has already found that mr Assange is a flight risk and its submitted that nothing has changed”
