However much of an arse he is, his rights and fears shouldn't be subjugated to the comfort of the state.
What a load of bollocks. You cannot ignore the law because of "fears". All that does is say that your personal inclination is more important than our laws.
<p>Sweden seems to have done nothing to allay those fears. They could interview him in London, or issue an assurance that he wouldn't be extradited after being interviewed in Sweden.</p>
He has been given those assurances, he "fears" that they are not being forthright and will extradite him anyway, despite it being against Swedish and EU law, so he is ignoring our laws.
And you're still apologizing and justifying his behaviour and actions..
