DECISION APPEALED
Decision of Svea Court of Appeal 2014-11-20, case Ö 8290-14

The matter presented here is in regards to permission to appeal.

Julian Assange has requested that the Supreme Court obtain a preliminary ruling from the European Court. But there have been no issues in the case which are in doubt regarding the interpretation of EU law that make it necessary to obtain a preliminary ruling in order to arrive at a decision. Request denied.

The Supreme Court will grant permission to appeal in the matter of detention. The decisions of the Court of Appeal are otherwise upheld.
