a Few minutes before it became known in the media got Per E Samuelson, information that his client has been arrested by british police inside Ecuador's embassy in London. In Sweden there are no longer any open investigations against Assange, but in the Uk, he risks to be condemned for having departed from his house arrest and instead taken refuge in the embassy.
But Julian Assange's fear is in his Swedish lawyer to be extradited to the united states. Something that Wikileaksgrundaren claimed ever since he called for the promotion of Sweden.
– Now we will get the answer to the question of whether the united states has requested his extradition or not, or if they will do it. The reason why he spent almost seven years at the embassy is that he's been afraid to be extradited to the united states, he has not been afraid of Sweden, or the Uk, " says Per E Samuelson, DN, and continues:
– Now, the U.S. will be forced to put the cards on the table. Now it is the moment of truth. Now we will get to know if his concerns have been justified or unjustified. All of the 2011 and 2012 in Sweden – from the prime minister downwards – criticised him and said he was hiding from Swedish justice, we will now get to see who was right.
is closed, but can in theory be opened again because the crime is not yet on the statute of limitations. Per E Samuelson has had continued contact with his client in 2019, and says that he, under the circumstances, has been good.
" He is a very strong person. I do not think that his belligerence has ended today. I think that if the US requests his extradition, so it will be a trial if it is in the Uk. But it is clear that he is disappointed that Ecuador withdraws his asylum after having been indoors in seven years.
Samuelson believe that the united states has prepared a secret indictment in order to get Assange extradited.
" I have, together with the English and american lawyers read the official information that has leaked out. Here and there the information leaked about the ongoing criminal proceedings against him, " says Samuelson, TT.
according to u.s. authorities should have been committed and 2010, respectively, during the electoral campaign of 2016, when it should have been widely disseminated e-mail with the link to the election campaign of Wikileaks.
I have read statements from the minister of justice, FBI director and CIA director, which clearly indicates that they are after him. So that this is no game, " says Samuelson, TT.
