WikiLeaks’ founder Julian Assange was remanded in custody on Friday after a brief hearing in a London court whoch will decide whether he should be extradited to the United States to face spying charges.

Assange, 48, faces 18 counts in the U.S. including conspiring to hack government computers and violating an espionage law. He could spend decades in prison if convicted.

Appearing by video link from Belmarsh Prison in east London, Assange, bearded and wearing a purple sweatshirt, spoke only to confirm his name and age before he was remanded in prison until his next hearing later this month.
