Julian Assange has made what he says might be his “last public appearance”. The Wikileaks founder hid his face behind an Anonymous mask as he appeared at an event, less than a week before his extradition ruling.

Assange was speaking at a pre-BAFTAS event in London, where he addressed his role in the documentary Shadows of Liberty, which deals with poor press freedom in the US.

In an interview to ABC News, Assange insisted he is at his best pursuing ideas he finds crucial to himself and to others.

“I feel that I have made my days count, so I certainly would not want to exchange days that can be counted for days that cannot,” he said.

For this appearance, he chose to wear the mask adopted by the Anonymous loose-knit international collective of hacktivists, thought to be behind high-profile attacks on government websites all over the world.

A panel of seven Supreme Court judges are set to make their decision on the scandal-stirring whistleblower’sextradition to Sweden next Wednesday, May 30.

The controversial cyberspace activist is accused of raping a woman in Stockholm back in 2010. He is also wanted by the Swedish authorities for questioning over sexual assault allegations. Assange denies the claims, saying they are politically motivated.
