Julian Assange was has been detained without charge since 7 December 2010. The Swedish prosecutor has refused to question him in the UK, a perfectly standard and established mechanism of EU cooperation. Mr. Assange was placed in solitary confinement in London’s high security Wandsworth prison for ten days and placed under house arrest for eighteen months. On 19 June 2012 Mr. Assange sought, and subsequentely obtained, asylum from the state of Ecuador. Ecuador considered there was sufficient risk that Mr. Assange would be extradited by Sweden to the United States, where he could be prosecuted for his publishing work.
Amnesty International has called on Sweden to issue assurances that it would bar his extradition, but the Swedish government has refused to do so.
