Marianne, End of day 1. All is fine. The arguments and submissions have been pure law and rather technical. Full notes of the hearing, prepared by Hanna, will follow on for your information [they are being proof checked]. They may be helpful to you and your prosecutor colleagues in due course and to Karin and her colleagues now. Nothing adverse arose.

The Guardian newspaper website has a [roughly] minute by minute account. I will send links through in case you or Karin wish to follow progress tomorrow [in live time].
****l willalso send through to you a short note on a technical point [relating to the translation issue upon which we recently correspondedl. This is being drafted now. All you should need to do is to send me a short reply confirming the position as set out in the note is correct. This should save much time and effort tomorrow. Once t'he defence lawyers see the written response they will accept the position. Rather a shame they cannot just accept our word. [l suppose times change and I am living in the past!!l
Paul.

Marianne,
I attach an updated advice. No problems but still a lot of heavy legal argument to go yet. There are 7 very \-,,independently minded Supreme Court judges sitting and a split decision is quite possible [but almost certainly not todayl.

I know you are following events carefully. However never forget

. English law which are under the judicial microscope. No criticism has been made at the hearing of the Swedish vsystems
or you personally.

that it is only the English extradition system and

Obviously a major one of my roles in representing you [apart from winning] is to protect the integrity of the Swedish system [and your office]. I still have no concerns.

Counseland I are here to represent only you, not the English extradition law or systems. I mention this just in case it appears, to those not used to our adversarial system that criticism of the English extradition system is in some way an implied criticism of the Swedish prosecution and the extradition request. tt is not.
I will be in touch later. As you know Julie Seddon [the CPS press officer] is at the hearing and obviously is available if ever Karin needs press assistance. Just let me know if any points which you or others need clarifying.

Paul

Amne: FW: The A matter

Hello Karin,

All is well in London: Very mixed but not unpleasant spring weather. Obviously still no news.

I reckon it is absolutely safe to assume that your information is totally and utterly wrong. I am sure the Supreme Court Justices will still be on leave until sometime next week. The court wiil then have to try [o find a suitable date when the \zseven Justices in the case are next all available to sit together to give the judgment. it may be that all of them do not wish or need to attend but I think they will wish to do so.
I am quite sure that the Supreme Court's officials will contact me [and counsels' clerks] prior to any date being fixed so they can make sure we are all available. I also believe that thscourt will contact me beforehand as it needl the help of the CPS in assisting with the arrangement of security matters with the police and the handling of press issues. [The court is concerned its website may be hacked into or just overwhelmed]. Julie will liaise with yo[ as necessary nearer the time.

As far as I know the defendant does not have to be at the hearing if he does not want to be there. He would not be summoned to attend the court [as he might be in proceedings before a lower court]. He is not on specific bail conditions to attend and if any bail issues ever arose then they can be dealt with in his absence. That said I have never known him to miss a photo opportunity.
I will of course contact you and Marianne immediately I have any news. You are very welcome to attend if you wish. hope this detail enables you to deal with all the enquiries at youi end.
I

Just say if you or Marianne need anything at all.

I am writing on behalf of Marianne who is attending a conference and therefore has no access to her e-mail. According to the Division for CriminalCases and lnternationalJudicialCo-operation at our Ministry of Justice, they have obtained (unconfirmed?) information saying that Mr. Assange is summoned to the UK Supreme Court on Monday. Have you any idea if this is correct and, if so, what it would mean?

Further statement on Assange v The Swedish Prosecution Authority


Following this morning's judgment by the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom in Assange v The Swedish Prosecution Authority, Ms Rose (counsel for the appellant, Mr Assange) has indicated that she may make an application to re-open the Court's decision. Ms Rose suggested that the majority of the Court appear to have based their decision on the interpretation of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties, on which no argument was heard and no opportunity of making submission was given. The Supreme Court has granted Ms Rose fourteen (14) days to make such an application. lf she decides to do so, the Justices will then decide whether to re-open the appeal and accept further submissions (either verbally through a further hearing, or on paper) on the matter.

. v

We will keep you updated on progress with this application and the Justices' consideration of any such application. With the agreement of the respondent, the required period for extradition shall not commence until 13th June 2012, the 14th day after judgment in accordance with section 36(3)(b) of the Extradition Act 2003.

Dear Julie,

We are preparing for tomorrow's decision from the Supreme Court. And we are prepared for (almost) all options... However, I would need your help in a few matters.

Option 1 lf the court decides to surrender him, we would like to be very clear about the facts concerning the EAW regulations, , especially of the fact that he should be transferred to Sweden as soon as possible. Would that be of any problem for you? His transfer is not an operational matter for the CPS but for the police, so saying you want him transferred as soon as possible is not a problem for us. We do have a guide to the process on our blog. Here's the link: http://bloe.cps.sov.uk/2012/01/iulian-assange-extradition-process.html

Option 2

hrplains to the ECHR, I guess I will get lots of questions concerning the proceedings in UK related to the E6HR I know very little about. ls there anybody at the CPS, or somewhere else, who could and is prepared to answer media questions? refer any queries to me on 4420 3357 0910.

Option 3 lf the court decides that he should not be surrendered, it will very quickly become a political issue - at least in Sweden' We delegate (!) all political questions to our Ministry of Justice, but I suppose there will be quite a few tricky matters to consider. We might have to agree on a mutual statement, for instance. I might get in contact with you, in that case.

Thals not a problem

- happy to speak to you tomorrow when we know what's happening. My mobile is 077g9 420214 but I'll have it switched off in court tomorrow morning.
HoPefully everything goes as smooth as possible. My telephone is already busy, though.

Best regards,

Karin Rosander

'vcps

sTATEMENT oN AssANGE

This has been a long and complex case. Together with the Swedish Judicial Authority, we welcome the decision of the Supreme Court that the request for extradition by the Swedish authorities was lawful and the European Arrest Warrant (EAW) was valid under UK law. We have liaised closely with the Swedish Judicial Authority after certification of the extradition request to the UK in December 2010. Julian Assange has exercised his statutory rights of appeal under UK law and the defence this morning has indicated it may make an application to re-open the Supreme Court's decision.

Today is the 14th day after the SC decision, which means that the required period for extradition should commence today. MrAssange is obviously not available to the British Police. Willthe extradition period be postponed until he is available, or will the period still start running as of today? lf the period starts running today and he would stay at the Ecuadorian embassy until after the the consequences be if he thereafter would leave the embassy? Sorry to bother you, but this matter is really confusing in many ways.

\'-

Unit and lain has passed on your email and asked if I could assist

The extradition period will continue to run from today, and the Metropolitan Police have sent a letter to Mr Assange (at his home address, the Embassy of Ecuador and care of his solicitors) inviting him to surrender to the custody of lolice at Belgravia Police Station on Friday 29th June 2012 at 11.30am. lf he fails to do so, the police will ask the court to issue an arrest warrant for the failure to surrender. With or without an arrest warrant Mr Assange can be arrested for breach of bail as soon as he leaves the Embassy of Ecuador. Under our Extradition Act 2003, a Requested Person can apply to be discharged if removal does not take place within the required 10 days and the judge "must order his discharge unless reasonable cause is shown for the delay"- Although it seems obvious that the fact that Mr Assange will not come out of the Embassy is "reasonable cause", I expect that Paul will not run the risk of having to argue this and will apply to extend tne i O day period if that becomes necessary. Finally, I should like to inform you that Mr Assange's defence solicitors have informed me that no request for Rule 3g relief has been made to the European court of Human Rights on his behalf.
I hope that what I have written is clear and assists. Please let me know if you require nay further information
