Wikileaks and the Law

Joshua Rozenberg looks at the legal issues behind the Wikileaks story.

The attempt to extradite the Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to Sweden has attracted media interest from across the world.

In the first of the news series Joshua Rozenberg speaks to Mr Assange's lawyer Mark Stephens and asks whether his regular press conferences and comments to the press have crossed the line between representing and supporting his client.

He asks the United States legal representative in the UK, Amy Jeffress, if the extradition arrangements between the US and UK need changing and he looks at whether people should be tweeting from court.
