LONDON - Julian Assange Founder of the whistleblower site Wikileaks will be no fair trial if he is extradited to Sweden where he is suspected of sexual assault and rape. That his lawyers argued Monday before a London court as the BBC reported.
The judge examines this week a request for extradition of Swedish Assange in December in Britain was arrested and since his release on bond under electronic supervision. Two Swedish women accusing him of sexual abuse.
Honest Assange's lawyers argued that the indecency cases in Sweden is usual behind closed doors. Without press in the room would be a risk that the leak wiki foreman, who suspects political motives behind the judicial process against him, no fair trial.
Indictment Counsel further argued that the European arrest warrant issued against their client is not valid. Such an order would apply only to an existing indictment. Sweden has no official charge against Assange formulated.
Extradition The lawyers have indicated Assange Sweden would like to hear. For this rendition is not necessary, they argued. There were plenty of opportunities to hear Assange without him having to have to come to Sweden.
Assange also fears that Sweden will extradite him to the United States, where he is by revealing numerous secret documents on Wikileaks has made many powerful enemies. Him in the U.S. torture and possibly even the death penalty hanging over their heads
