WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange promised his controversial website will continue churning out top-secret documents, while speaking to reporters outside London's Belmarsh Magistrates' Court after a brief extradition hearing Tuesday, has learned.

"We are stepping up our publishing for matters related to Cablegate and other materials," Assange said. "Those will shortly be occurring through our newspaper partners around the world -- big and small newspapers, and some human rights organizations."

Cablegate refers to WikiLeaks' late-November 2010 release of U.S. diplomatic cables (confidential messages between diplomats and their governments) online.

The 39-year-old Australian was in London to fight extradition to Sweden, where two women have accused him of rape, molestation and unlawful coercion.  Assange and his minions have claimed he’s a political target for officials upset with his website’s stream of revelations.
