Re: Statute of limitations

He's only "on the run" to the extent that a sovereign state has granted him political asylum... And the arguments in favour of a statute of limitations don't diminish based on that. In any case, the Swedes chose to wait and wait against all sensible reason (they have 'questioned' 44 suspects in the UK since Assange took asylum in London), and any sensible criminal defence lawyer would be advising Assange to wait out the statute of limitations for the next week - regardless of guilt or innocence or legitimacy or otherwise of the allegations. If anybody really thinks he has not been politically stitched up, due to his (imho good/public interest) wikileaks, they are naive beyond repair.
