Interesting articles, and thanks for posting them, but I wonder about this from the OP article: “From the beginning I offered simple solutions,” Assange said. “Come to the embassy to take my statement or promise not to send me to the United States. This Swedish official refused both. She even refused a written statement This is beyond incompetence.”
If this is true, you do have to wonder. If Sweden is notorious for not extraditing on espionage, how hard would it be to give written assurance that it was only a rape investigation and under no circumstances would he be extradited anywhere?
