"Never understood why sweden wouldn't just give an assurance not to extradite him to the US?"

Why the fuck should they? He's the suspect. You don't bargain with the suspect, you arrest them, and if there is sufficient evidence, put them on trial, and if there is sufficient evidence again, they will be convicted. As a suspect in a rape inquiry, you don't get to set conditions on whether you would like to be arrested.

This is where the whole 'Assange thinks he's above the law' thing comes from. Because he clearly does.
