Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, has had his appeal against extradition to Sweden rejected by Britain's Supreme Court this Wednesday. Mr. Assange has been accused of rape. The legal question at the center of the appeal was whether or not the Swedish prosecutor could issue a European Arrest Warrant for Mr. Assange. The Supreme Court ruled that the prosecutor was indeed a "judicial authority," and could issue such a warrant. Mr. Assange has 14 days to challenge the ruling.
