Julian Assange urged to do the 'decent thing'

The Australian said Thursday that Foreign Minister Carl Bildt has encouraged the Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to do the "decent thing" and confront the sexual assault allegations against him in Sweden.

Julian Assange has said he fears that he would be extradite from Swedento the US, something that Carl Bildt rejects.

"I think the decent thing for him to do is go and answer those questions from the Swedish prosecutor. I really fail to understand why he doesn't do that ... I don't know how long he wants to be held up at in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. It's a rather strange way of spending his life", the Swedish minister told the Australian.

"I think, as someone pointed out, if the US wanted him they had a better possibility by asking the Brits."

Same question could be asked of Carl Bildt - why doesn't the Swedish prosecutor do the "decent thing" and question Assange in London? It is her investigation, after all, and refusing to progress the investigation to the next stage by interrogating Assange is not doing "the decent thing" by the women involved. Sweden's reputation around the world is being severely damaged by their behaviour in this matter.
