WikiLeaks: Julian Assange 'happy' after extradition hearing
Source: The Guardian

Julian Assange today expressed his satisfaction after a procedural hearing on his extradition to Sweden and vowed that WikiLeaks would continue its work.

After the hearing at Belmarsh magistrates court, Assange said he was "happy about today's outcome" and said the skeleton argument he and his legal team hastily produced over Christmas will be made publicly available later.

This outlines "some important issues which will be gone into in detail on 6 and 7 February", he said.

"I would also like to say that our work with WikiLeaks continues unabated and we are stepping up our publishing for matters relating to 'cablegate' and other materials. This will shortly be occurring through our newspaper partners around the world, big and small newspapers and some human rights organisations."

Hmm, several people here said in no-uncertain-terms that the hearings were/court was not at Belmarsh?

2. "Hey Julian, what did you have for lunch?"
"I had a sandwich, pickle, and a bag of crisps. I'll be revealing what kind of sandwich on the 15th of next month. The type of bread will follow a couple of weeks after that."
