Julian’s bail was set at 20,000 pounds – or $315,000 USD – and as previously reported documentary film-maker Michael Moore put up $20,000 of his own money to help with the bail.

Although a British judge granted bail, Sweden immediately appealed the judge’s decision to set bail, so at this time, Assange remains behind bars while the case continues to play itself out.

“My convictions are unfaltering. I remain true to the ideals I have expressed. This circumstance shall not shake them,” Julian said in response to the allegations set forth against him and the controversy surrounding WikiLeaks.

“If anything this process has increased my determination that they are true and correct.”
