Assange Extradition Hearing Gets Under Way In London

A London court has begun hearing arguments in the extradition hearings against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

The hearing will last for about a week, with proceedings expected to resume in may for an additional three weeks.

A US grand jury indicted Assange last May with 17 counts under the US espionage act and one count of computer hacking. As each of the 17 counts carries a maximum sentence of 10 years, he could face a total of 175 years’ in jail should he be brought to stand trial across the Atlantic.
