WikiLeaks’ Assange Freed on Bail

(Ping! Zine) – Julian Assange is free after prosecutors lost their battle in preventing the WikiLeaks founder from being released on bail while Swedish officals decide whether to extradite Assange on sex crimes.

A British judge today granted Assange to be freed on bail for £240,000 with the stipulation that Assange wear an electronic tag and be placed under a curfew.

Swedish prosecutors before the hearing denied that they had asked for the appeal. However the company which has made the legal filings against Julian Assange, Crown Prosecution Service, upheld that it is acting as an agent of the Swedish lawyers.

according to the BBC, Assange is expected to be released as soon as paperwork is completed.
