The WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, will try to win his release from prison today afternoon, a week after being held on remand after Sweden requested his arrest over allegations that he sexually assaulted two women. Even if the judge at Westminster magistrates court in London grants Assange bail, he could still be held.
The Crown Prosecution Service, which will represent the Swedish authorities in the UK court, has the right to appeal against any bail decision. Usually the suspect would be held in custody until an appeal hearing anyway.
