Julian Assange granted bail
Posted on 14 December 2010.
WikiLeaks founder and director Julian Assange has been granted bail and will likely be freed in the next few days - as soon as the £240,000 in security are raised and delivered.

The judge decided that Assange can be released from detention until the extradition hearing scheduled for the 11th of January if he obeys the strict rules and conditions set by him: £240,000 in security, surety of £40,000 from two people, a curfew from 10am to 2pm, an obligation to report daily to a police station and to hand over his passport.

The decision is not yet final, since the lawyers representing Sweden have been given two hours to lodge a complaint against it.

Vaughan Smith - the founder of the FrontLine club in west London which Assange has been using as a base for his activities before the arrest - is one of the people who offered security money for his release and Assange will, according to the Guardian, be staying at his house in Suffolk until the next hearing.
