The allegations against him (and what his Interpol warrant is for) are for sexual assault/rape in Sweden; they have nothing to do with any of his wiki-leaks activities.
All depends whether or not you believe he was the victim of a honey pot scheme.

The women's story is prettyy shaky, I'll admit. But Julian's rationale for avoiding questioning (and thus Sweden) makes no sense. If he's truly worried about being extradited to the US, why would have have been hiding in the UK? They'd be much more likely to extradite over the to US than Sweden...

His risk of illegal rendition is much higher in Sweden I believe.

In Singapore yes, because of course there is no free press nor real protection for whistle blowers.
There's always the "offending the modesty of a woman" charge which doesn't take as much to be charged.

...and of course he could have 'compounded' and paid the girls a bribe to get off just like the Brit did the other day. I can't believe the judiciary here allows that.
