WikiLeaks Founder Appears in Court Over Extradition

Photo Courtesy - Leon Neal/AFP/Getty Images(LONDON) -- Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, made a short appearance at Belmarsh Magistrates’ Court in London Tuesday for a procedural hearing related to his extradition to Sweden.

During the case management hearing, bail conditions were relaxed to allow Assange to stay in London for two days so he can attend his next scheduled court dates on Feb. 7 and 8, when a final decision on his extradition will be made.

Assange is fighting extradition from the United Kingdom to Sweden, where two women have accused him of sexual assault.  He was freed on bail in England after being arrested on Dec. 7 in London.
