On MSNBC:

Legal experts say that, in the event that the United States did prosecute him, it would be easier to extradite him from Britain — which has a fast-track extradition treaty with Washington — than from Sweden.

If Assange was extradited to Sweden on the sex crime allegations, Sweden could not then extradite him to the United States to face hypothetical charges over the leak of classified information without getting Britain’s permission, Geoff Gilbert, a law professor at the University of Essex, told Reuters.

So why doesn’t he go back to Sweden voluntarily?
