[starttext]The man behind WikiLeaks says his website's revelations are just the tip of the iceberg. In an exclusive interview with RT, Julian Assange said it is only a matter of time before more damaging information becomes known. The publication of confidential cables proved deeply embarrassing for the US and other countries. "If we look at our work over the last 12 moths, think about that. All these stories that have come out actually happened in the world, before 2010, but people didn't know about it. So what is it that we don't know about now? There's an enormous hidden world out there that we don't know about. It exists there right now." Assange claims the data released by WikiLeaks is not even the most important and calls on people not to believe that the information they receive from the media is all that is happening. "We only released secret, classified, confidential material. We didn't have any top secret cables. The really embarrassing stuff, the really serious stuff wasn't in our collection to release. But it is still out there." Watch the full version of that interview with Julian Assange, on Monday on RT.

[starttext]An Britich court has ordered Julian Assange, the founder of whistle blowing website WikiLeaks, to be extradited to Sweden over sex crimes claims.

Howard Riddle, the judge at Belmarsh Magistrate's court in London, said on Thursday that the allegations of rape and sexual molestation brought by two women were extraditable offences and that a Swedish arrest warrant was properly issued.

Lawyers for the 39-year-old Australian said they would be contesting the decision, having previously argued that Assange would not be given a fair trial in Sweden and could face extradition to the United States.

"Both sides, the prosecution and the defence, have told the judge that they are going to appeal if they lose, so we are already working on that principle," Mark Stephens, Assange's lawyer, told the Independent newspaper earlier in the day.

Swedish prosecutors issued an international arrest warrant for Assange last year for questioning over allegations of sexual misconduct, which he flatly denies.

Two women have made claims against him, one alleging that he sexually molested her for refusing to wear a condom, and the other that he had sex with her while she was asleep.

Assange's legal team argued during three days of hearings earlier this month, that the Swedish prosecutor had no power to issue a European arrest warrant, and that the charges did not amount to extradition offences.

But lawyers representing Sweden said the warrant complied with legal requirements, and dismissed suggestions that Assange could be extradited to the US, saying Britain would have to give its consent.

Assange has been in the public spotlight since his website WikiLeaks began releasing secret US military and diplomatic files.

His lawyers have argued that he would not face a fair trial in Sweden, with rape cases often held behind closed doors, and that if eventually extradited to the US, he could be sent to Guantanamo Bay or even face the death penalty.

News Report: UK Judge - Assange Can Be Extradited

[starttext]A British judge has ruled that Julian Assange be extradited to Sweden to face sexual assault allegations.

Following more than two days of hearings this month at a London magistrate's court, Judge Howard Riddle ordered that the 39-year-old Australian and WikiLeaks founder be sent to Stockholm to face charges of rape and sexual assault.

The silver-haired Australian sat in the dock of the court showing no emotion as Judge Riddle read: "I must order that Mr Assange is extradited to Sweden".

"I have specifically considered whether the physical or mental condition of the defendant is such that it would be unjust or oppressive to extradite him," Judge Riddle said.

"In fact, I am satisfied that extradition is compatible with the defendant's convention rights. I must order that Mr Assange be extradited to Sweden."

He added that Assange had seven days to lodge an appeal the against the decision.

"Clear and specific allegations have been made against Mr Assange in Sweden," Judge Riddle said, adding that it was reasonable for authorities to request he be in Stockholm for questioning.

The allegations against Assange include three counts of sexual assault and one of rape, against two women on two separate occasions in August 2010.

Judge Riddle recounted details of the women’s claims: that in one case Assange "deliberately molested the injured party by acting in a manner designed to violate her sexual integrity".

His actions included holding her arms, forcing apart her legs and putting his body weight on top of her to prevent her movement, later rubbing his erect penis against her naked body.The allegation involving the second woman is that Assange had unprotected sex with a woman who was sleeping, knowing she would not consent to unprotected sex and constituting rape.

Judge Riddle rejected arguments by Assange's lawyers that the Swedish prosecutor in charge of the investigation was not authorised to order the extradition and had made a mistake.

"Here, there is simply no reason to believe there has been a mistake," he said.

"The prosecution has been meticulous and left no stone unturned."

The court continues to discuss Assange’s bail status.Since December 14, his conditional bail has required he live at an English country estate and report daily to police.

Geoffrey Robertson QC, representing Assange, said there were some difficulties if bail were to be continued in its current form, including the electronic "bracelet" that his client is required to wear to monitor his whereabouts.

"You know what the problem is: that it does restrict his exercise. He can't run, for example," Mr Robertson told the court. "The electronic tag does, for example, make it difficult to run."

Without having made a formal decision on bail, Judge Riddle said the current measures were necessary.

"There is a need for the authorities to know where somebody is on a daily basis," he said.

Dressed in a dark grey suit with red tie, Assange held a notebook and pen throughout Thursday's ruling but wrote down little.

Earlier, he strode confidently pass waiting media and into the court complex, smiling and chatting with his legal representatives

The smile was nowhere to be seen after Judge Riddle’s ruling, with Assange clasping his hands and shifting in his seat.

"On the information I have, it does not seem unreasonable for a prosecutor in a serious matter such as this to expect and indeed require the presence of Mr Assange in Sweden for questioning and, if necessary, to take a DNA sample," Judge Riddle said.
