UK judiciary: Assange bids to stop extradition
UK judiciary: Julian Assange files application to take extradition case to Supreme Court
By The Associated Press

LONDON (AP) ' WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange filed a bid Tuesday to challenge his extradition to Sweden in Britain's highest court, says the Judicial Office.

On Nov. 2, two judges rejected the 40-year-old hacker's challenge to an order that he be extradited to Sweden to face questioning over allegations of rape and molestation.

Assange will ask High Court judges at a Dec. 5 hearing to rule that his case raises a question of general public importance and should be considered by the Supreme Court.

Wikileaks spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson declined to comment on why Assange decided to apply for a hearing in the Supreme Court, saying he did not have the full details.

"This is a personal matter not a WikiLeaks matter," he told The Associated Press. "This is a separate issue from the organization."
