Assange Could Face Execution Or Guantanamo Bay

An anonymous reader writes “WikiLeaker-in-chief Julian Assange faces the real danger of being executed or languishing in the US prison camp at Guantánamo Bay if, as a result of his extradition to Sweden, he ends up in the hands of the Americans, his lawyers argue. In a skeleton summary of Assange’s defence, posted online, Assange’s lawyers argue that it is likely that the US would seek his extradition ‘and/or illegal rendition” from Sweden. In the United States “there will be a real risk of him being detained at Guantánamo Bay or elsewhere,’ his lawyers write.”
