A British judge has ruled WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is to remain in prison even after his current term ends, because of his “history of absconding.” He was due to be released next week. Britain’s home secretary signed a request for Assange’s extradition to the U.S. in June; a full extradition hearing will take place in February next year. Prosecutors in the U.S. have indicted Assange on 18 counts, including 17 violations of the Espionage Act.
