The Supreme Court has stated:
Julian Assange v Swedish Judicial Authority, 16 December 2011
The Supreme Court has today considered an application by Julian Assange for permission to appeal to the Court, following the Divisional Court’s certification of a point of law of general public importance.
A panel of three Supreme Court Justices – Lord Hope, Lord Mance and Lord Dyson – has considered the written submissions of the parties; this is the Court’s usual practice for considering applications for permission to appeal.
The Supreme Court has granted permission to appeal and a hearing has been scheduled for two days, beginning on 1 February 2012.
The Court has decided that seven Justices will hear the appeal given the great public importance of the issue raised, which is whether a prosecutor is a judicial authority.
Details of the Justices who will hear the case and the timings of the hearing will be published in the new year.
