Julian Assange hires a Swedish PR agency

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has hired a Swedish PR agency, reports newspaper Dagens Media. The CEO of Ullman PR, Harald Ullman, says Assange will be coming to Stockholm soon.

The High Court in London denied Assange's appeal against extradition to Sweden last week. His lawyer has until next week to ask for permission to appeal the decision to the country's highest court.

Assange is wanted for questioning in Sweden where he is suspected of sexual assault against two women in 2010.

Assange's lawyer, Björn Hurtig, tells news agency TT that he can neither confirm nor deny the report that Assange has hired the PR agency because he had heard nothing of it.
