'Hunt for Assange on, Sweden a tool of US'

 01/aug/2012 by RussiaToday

Swedish authorities have declined Ecuador's invitation to question Julian Assange in its London embassy - without any meaningful explanation, according to Wikileaks' twitter feed. The whistleblower has been holed-up in the Latin American country's diplomatic mission for over six weeks now, seeking asylum. Assange is wanted in Sweden for questioning over sex crime allegations which he denies. He believes proceedings may be just a pretext to hand him over to the US - where he fears prosecution on espionage charges for a massive leak of secret diplomatic and military files. Anti-war activist and journalist Don DeBar says Washington is on an all-out hunt for Assange, and is willing to sidestep international law to get him.
