"We are very critical and we are going to appeal against it," Samuelson said regarding the court’s decision.
He noted that the appeal was a matter of weeks and could be made as soon as in a couple of weeks.
"As soon as we have done all the work. We will do that, there is no time limit. This will have a continuation. We won’t stop here. In the end I am convinced we will win," Assange's lawyer said.
Samuelson stressed that the Swedish court seemingly saw only the Swedish pre-investigation and noted that Sweden disregarded the ruling of the UN working group that said that the 44-year-old Australian was detained arbitrarily in London and should be allowed to walk free.
"They [Sweden] don’t see a dilemma which Julian Assange is in, when he is wanted both by Swedish authorities and by the American authorities. They disregard the question about the political asylum and they go against the United Nations working group’s decision to see that he has his liberty back," Samuelson said.
