He has one last shot at the UK. Then he's off to Sweden, or Australia.
That is if he loses his appeal against the EAW, he's then on a plane back to Sweden where he will face charges. (People seem to think that this is just so that they will interview him. Its not. Its so that they can officially charge him with rape.)
If he wins, then its up to the UK to see if he can stay or if he gets the boot back to Australia.
This will depend on agreements within the commonwealth between Australia and the UK. I mean when all said and done, if Australia decides his passport is no longer valid, he'll end up getting bounced back to Australia.
Again, that's speculation. I don't know the law concerning what happens when someone outlasts their welcome.
Assange can't really travel anywhere in the EU.
Just because the UK doesn't want to honor the EAW, doesn't mean that other countries wont.
I am assuming that the EAW is still out on Assange and is still active. So if Julian wants to pop down to Spain or France, whips out his passport... oops! He's back in jail awaiting extradition.
It really doesn't make sense why he's fighting this. He's already a convicted felon in Australia, unless of course his record was wiped because he was a juvenile? (Again I don't know Aussie laws)
You're right. this isn't a 'stitch up' job. Way too sloppy. Even the CIA couldn't bungle it this bad.
Just pray that Julian doesn't piss off the KGB or the Russian mobs. Unlike the US, they don't mess around.
