The UK's highest court has rejected a move by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to reopen his appeal against his extradition to Sweden where he faces sex crime allegations.
The announcement was made today by the Supreme Court.
It said in a statement that the required period for extradition "shall not commence until the 14th day after today".
Seven Supreme Court justices unanimously dismissed the move as being "without merit".
The dismissal, which comes after a decision in late May to extradite Assange, means that Assange now faces being returned to Sweden to face allegations of sex crimes.
