Julian Assange is due to appear in person before magistrates for a routine administrative hearing.

 

The WikiLeaks founder, 48, is currently being held in HMP Belmarsh awaiting the outcome of an extradition request by the US, where he faces 18 charges, including conspiring to hack into a Pentagon computer.

 

He is due to appear before Westminster Magistrates' Court on Monday morning, said campaign group Bridges for Media Freedom.

 

Australian Assange is accused of working with former US army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to leak hundreds of thousands of classified documents.

 

The hearing on Monday is expected to be short and could attract some of his supporters, who often attend court with banners demanding his release.

 

Assange's full extradition hearing is scheduled for February 24 at Woolwich Crown Court.
