WikiLeaks Will Continue Leaking Documents

VOA News 11 January 2011

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said his group plans to accelerate its publication of secret U.S. diplomatic cables and other documents.

Assange said WikiLeak's work will continue "unabated."

He spoke to reporters outside a London court where he appeared Tuesday as part of his fight to avoid extradition to Sweden for questioning on allegations of sexual misconduct.

Tuesday's hearing was mostly procedural. A full extradition hearing will take place in February.

The WikiLeaks website has released hundreds of classified documents since the website was launched in 2006. The latest batch includes nearly 250,000 secret U.S. diplomatic cables.

British police arrested the 39-year-old Assange in December on a Swedish warrant. He was released after spending nine days in prison and posting more than $315,000 in bail.

Assange is accused of sexual misconduct with two female WikiLeaks volunteers in Sweden in August. He denies the allegations. Assange and his lawyers claim the charges are politically motivated.
