Assange Turns Himself In
After the advertised manhunt yesterday for Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange turned himself in to the authorities.
London (CNN) — WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange handed himself over to police Tuesday, promptly appeared in court where he was denied bail, and left for jail in a police van.
A judge will now decide whether to extradite him to Sweden to face questioning over allegations he had sexual relations with two women without their consent. He has not been charged with a crime.
The judge at the City of Westminster Magistrate’s Court ordered Assange jailed until December 14, despite several celebrities coming forward and offering to pay his surety, or bail. It was not immediately clear if the court would decide on that date whether to release him.
