Sweden just refuses to hold up to justice. After a judge had granted Julian Assange bail – they were all back in the court room. Sweden has 48 hours to appeal – international law. Britain has to abide by it.
From Assange, ” I understand.”
From the Guardian: “Stephens said [Assange] was phlegmatic.”
5.36pm: Speaking again outside the court, Stephens says the Swedes will not abide by the umpire’s decision. “They [the Swedish authorities] clearly will not spare any expense to keep Mr Assange in jail,” he added.
“This is really turning in to a show trial. We will be in court in the next 48 hours, they haven’t given us the courtesy to say when. It is an unfortunate state of affairs … but given their history of persecuting of Mr Assange, it is perhaps not surprising.”
