    Should Julian Assange come out of hiding ?

    Post by papa_umau on Wed 20 Aug 2014, 11:13 am

    REUTERS - LONDON - WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who has spent over two years in Ecuador's London embassy to avoid a sex crimes inquiry in Sweden, said on Monday he planned to leave the building "soon", but Britain signalled it would still arrest him if he tried.




    The Julian Assange story has been confused and complicated by the fact that there is a warrant out for him on a sex-assault case in Sweden.

    Over the top of this, America wants to get their hands on him for the "Wikileaks" publication of documents that were said to be secret.

    If we think that Assange SHOULD come out of hiding in the Ecuadorian Embassy, and give himself up for arrest by the British or the Swedish police; do we think that he will be safe from extradition from Britain or Sweden by America later on ?

    This is definitely a very involved story and I think that if Assange gives himself up to the Swedish cops we may find that his feet won't touch the ground until he arrives at Gitmo.

    There is a strong possibility that this will happen and I am sure that Assange is well-aware about this.

    I am also sure that before Assange sneaks out of the Ecuadorian embassy he will have been given a written promise from Sweden that he will not be handed over to the Americans.

    Watch this space.

    He's a smart cookie, so I don't think he is going to just hand himself over to the Yanks.

    If he can slip out of the Ecuador Embassy and not get caught by the British cops, and he has a down-on-paper promise from Sweden, he really should go there and get this sex assault charge dealt with.

    Easy to say Angie, but not so easy to do I think.
