Julian Assange defiant ahead of extradition ruling

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has described his 10 months under house arrest without charge as "perverse", ahead of a ruling on Wednesday in his High Court bid to block extradition to Sweden.

Mr Assange denies allegations of raping one woman and sexually molesting and coercing another in Stockholm in August last year. He spent eight nights in prison before being released under house arrest in December 2010.

Answering viewer questions on the BBC's World Have Your Say, Mr Assange said the long period of house arrest without charge suggested that the rule of law was "effectively breaking down".
