julian assange extradition

Lawyer: "The delay cannot be justified"

"We were expecting this verdict and why it has taken such a long time I cannot understand and it cannot be justified," says lawyer Claes Borgström.

He is representing the two women who have accused WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange of sexual molestation and rape.

"Finally we have a decision," Borgström told Swedish Radio on Wednesday.

"It's been an ordeal for the two women," says Borgström.

"Because of the delay, they've mentally tried to keep this at arm's length distance," he adds.
