I assume you are not aware of that the previous Swedish government was caught in a shit storm due to an extraordinary rendition of two Egyptians? They where only saved by the boxing day tsunami striking causing a shit in media focus.

So, that the current government should extradite Assange to somewhere where he would face being locked up without a trial is hyperbole, nothing else. The execution argument is so even more stupid as Sweden does not extradite anyone if they face the death penalty.

No it is not.

However paying for sexual services are and is frequently prosecuted. Just the other day it was a minor scandal with some politicians and union representatives getting caught in a union owned flat in Stockholm with prostitutes while in the act.

They said "No" but he did not stop, which constitutes rape in Sweden. From the article:

"- The allegations against Assange are not a plot by Pentagon nor anyone else. The responsibility for what happened to me and the other girl rests solely on a man with a distorted view of women and problems accepting that a 'No' is a 'No'"?

Looks like this is what happend. At least this is what one of the women are saying at least:

http://www.aftonbladet.se/nyheter/article7652935.ab

"– Anklagelserna mot Assange är förstås inte iscensatta av varken Pentagon eller någon annan. Ansvaret för det som hänt mig och den andra tjejen ligger hos en man med skev kvinnosyn och problem att ta ett nej."

Which in a rough translation is :

"- The allegations against Assange are not a plot by Pentagon nor anyone else. The responsibility for what happened to me and the other girl rests solely on a man with a distorted view of women and problems accepting that a 'No' is a 'No'"?

So unless you assault someone you dont know it is not rape then? Anyways, I was just trying to point out the ludicrous comment by mangu.

I would say that like most countries in the world no-one cares about Assange in Sweden more than the chattering classes and the /.-croud, especially random girls in a bar.
