More misunderstandings in the Assange case

Tomorrow on February 24, 2010 Judge Riddle in the UK will decide if Assange will be extradited to Sweden. The Guardian is publishing an article quoting a Julian Knowles who "has written books about extraditions" claiming that "There is no doubt that a Swedish prosecutor does have the power to issue warrants....And the Swedish prosecutor has made it clear that Mr Assange is wanted for trial if he goes back. Unless he can demonstrate his innoncence before trial, he will be tried." Well, is this self proclaimed expert wrong - big time.
Shame on the Guardian to dig up such a twit to interview on this interesting case. Someone educated on basic law and the case itself can tell the Guardian that Assange is not going to trial in Sweden, he is being extradited to be heard on allegations made against him regarding sexual assaults. The preliminary investigation that will be used when the prosectutor decides if she will try the case in court or not cannot be finalized until the alleged perpetrator has been heard. The reason to why the Swedish prosecutor wants to hear Assange in Sweden, is that she can arrest him and put him on isolation in a Swedish prison until she has finished the preliminary investigation.  

And, Assange is not going to Sweden to prove his innocence before the Swedish law, he is going to Sweden to be heard about certain allegations, it is the prosecutor, that in the case it will be a trial of Assange's guilt in court, will have to prove, beyond doubt that Assange is guilty. Assange has alreay been on unfair trial by Swedish mainstream media already, and has been found guilty but I not think he really cares enough about their incompetence and open agenda to bother to demonstrate his innocence to them.
