LONDON: Britain's Supreme Court has rejected WikiLeaks chief Julian Assange's bid to reopen his case, bringing the 40-year-old's extradition to Sweden one step closer.

In a five-point ruling published Thursday, the court said the world famous computer expert should be extradited to Sweden to face sex crimes allegations.

Assange is wanted for questioning in Sweden after two women accused him of sexual misconduct, stemming from a visit to the country in mid-2010.

Asange can still apply to the European Court of Human Rights, but legal experts say he stands little chance there.
