Wikileaks founder Julian Assange can bring a new appeal against extradition to the US, the UK High Court has ruled.

In 2022, then-home secretary Priti Patel signed his extradition order, which would see Mr Assange sent to the US to stand trial for leaking military secrets.

But, today’s decision means he will be able to challenge US assurances over how his prospective trial would be conducted and whether his right to free speech would be infringed.

Mr Assange has resisted extradition from the UK for more than a decade, after his Wikileaks website published thousands of confidential US documents in 2010 and 2011, and he will now have a number of months to prepare his appeal.
