INTERNATIONAL NEWS - Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is returning to court to learn if he will be sent to Sweden to answer sex crime allegations.
The 40-year-old was awaiting a judgment scheduled to be delivered Wednesday on his appeal against extradition.
Swedish authorities want to question Assange over the alleged rape of one woman and the molestation of another in Stockholm last year. Assange denies wrongdoing, and insists the case is politically motivated.
Legal experts predict Britain's High Court will rule in favor of extraditing Assange, who has spent much of the past year under virtual house arrest at a supporter's country estate.
If Assange loses, he may have the right to appeal to Britain's Supreme Court.
