Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has been denied bail by a UK court. He’ll continue to be held in custody pending a US appeal against the blocking of his extradition, a judge in London ruled Wednesday. The French Press Agency (AFP) reports that Judge Vanessa Baraitser, who on Monday refused to grant his extradition, told Westminster Magistrates Court that if released there were “substantial grounds” to suspect Assange would “fail to surrender” for future appeal hearings. Outside court, lawyer Stella Morris, Assange’s fiancee and the mother of two of his children, called the decision “a huge disappointment” and urged the US Justice Department to drop the charges.
