Yes, Assange, we'll still nick you for skipping bail, rules court


Yes, but without seeing an application you can't judge one. So suppose the United States could adduce evidence of some non-political crime committed by Assange. Who can say? But to give an assurance of no extradition to the United States under any circumstances would be to disregard the extradition treaty. It would be a nonsensical assurance.
