The Supreme Court of the United Kingdom has unanimously dismissed the application on behalf of Julian Assange to re-open the case in the court.

You can read the judgment in full here; Application to re-open appeal.

The fact that the court handed down it´s judgement only two days after receiving it and calling it "without merit" in the language code of courts in effect means "Fuck you, now go away and stop wasting our valuable time with your bullshit!"

To give Assange time to appeal the previous ruling by the Court on May 30, 2012, 20 the European Court of Human Rights, the Court decided that the extradition should not commence until after July 28, 2012. The European Court has also announced that if an application should arrive, they can be expected to deal with it within a fortnight.

The Swedish police and other security forces have reportedly stepped up their vigilance in preparation of expected Internet-attacks on Swedish government institutions.
