Assange lawyer accepts warning

Swede Björn Hurtig, one of Julian Assange's lawyers, says he accepts Thursday's disciplinary warning from Sweden's bar association after a judge in Britain said he gave misleading information in the WikiLeaks founder's extradition hearing back in March.

Hurtig received the warning for submitting misleading information to the British court about a Swedish prosecutor's attempts to contact his client.

Assange's appeal against his extradition to Sweden to face allegations of rape and sexual molestation against two women takes place next month.
