London, (Agencies): WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, will resume his court battle in a British court on Monday to fight his extradition to Sweden. The leaked information is expected to give a new angle to the rape and molestation accusations he faces.

The two-day hearing at a high security London court will scrutinize a Swedish arrest warrant for the 39-year-old Australian, who became globally known for his website's release of thousands of secret US diplomatic cables.

Celebrity backers including socialite Jemima Khan will also lead rallies in London on Monday for Assange, who are admant on their stand that sex assault claims made against the former computer hacker by two Swedish women are politically motivated.

The judge is likely to reschedule his decision in the case at Belmarsh Magistrates' Court in south London. If the verdict goes against Assange he will be able to appeal the judgment all the way to England's Supreme Court.

His lawyers dispute that if Assange is extradited to Sweden, he runs the risk of extradition or even illegal rendition to the United States where they say he could face the death penalty.

Assange was out on bail a week after his arrest on December 7 and has since been staying at a friend's country mansion, under restrictive conditions stating that he has to comply with a curfew, wear an electronic ankle tag and report to police daily.

At the last hearing in January, the judge relaxed the conditions for Sunday and Monday, allowing Assange to sleep on those nights at the Frontline media club in London while he attends court.

Swedish authorities say they want to question Assange over sex assault claims by the two women.

Swedish police reports filled with graphic details of the allegations were leaked onto the Internet last week.
