    Britain's Supreme Court has decided Wikileaks founder Julian Assange can be extradited to Sweden over alleged sex crimes.

    Lawyers for the Australian claimed that a European Arrest Warrant was invalid because it was issued by a Swedish prosecutor instead of a judge.

    However, the UK court recognised the authority of the prosecutor by a majority of 5-2.
