Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, has lost his appeal against extradition to Sweden where he faces allegations of sexual assault.

As ABC News reports, almost four months after Assange's appeal was lodged, two judges of London's High Court rejected the argument that his extradition would be unlawful.

The High Court ruled that the Swedish arrest stands and that Assange must face questioning over the allegations by two former WikiLeaks volunteers.

According to ABC News, Assange's lawyers are expected to apply to the UK Supreme Court for leave to appeal within 14 days. Assange and his team must also establish that there is a wider interest of public importance to be considered for leave to be granted.

Assange's Swedish lawyer, Bjorn Hurtig, said he was not surprised by the High Court's ruling. Another of Assange's legal advisers, Geoffrey Robertson QC, told ABC's Lateline that Assange would not receive a fair trial if the extradition eventuates.
