In layman's terms, how is it that Assange can evade extradration to his country?
He hasn't been indicted by an Australian court, so he doesn't have to avoid that, as such. It's the "land of the free" he has to worry about.
Of course, it's possible that with this new development Sweden might decide to reinstate those pesky rape charges.
You need to take care of my cat!
Assange arrest expect today
The arrest is made
50 weeks in British prison
more troubles for Assange
meanwhile, in another corner of the case
is anyone going to buy this?
I'm not going to pretend to know, but I certainly wouldn't dismiss it out of hand. He was a little squirrelly even before he sought asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy, then several years without sunlight, and now God only knows what they've done to him in custody.
The Chin. Didn't work, though.
Mmmm. Maybe. But to me it seems that free room and board in the Embassy is a pretty easy gig.
It appears the embassy has an open-air area in the middle.
Well, fine, everyone, but I did list two other reasons he might be unwell now.
It might fray your nerves knowing that you are going to be arrested as soon as you walk outside the embassy grounds. He wanted to be a pirate. Now he gets to live the pirate's life.
Assange rape investigation dropped
Do you suppose this makes the legal fees higher or lower?
In keeping with your other post, yes, we're definitely living in a Neal Stephenson book.
