    Marshall added: "It's important to remember that Mr Assange has not been charged with anything, he only wants to be interviewed as a witness, so magistrates may decide they're not happy with sending him to Sweden but that it's ok for police to come over here to interview him.

    "But if magistrates decide otherwise and he is extradited, the Swedish police will interview him and then decide whether there is enough evidence to go to trial or not."

    Sky News' reporter Paul Harrison expects that Mr Assange's bail will be set at around £100,000 to £200,000.

    "If the money can't be found then he will have to be held in custody on remand, but I don't think that will be the case despite it being a very large sum," he said.

    "And I don't think there are any concerns that he will go on the run. It was his intention to meet the police and he denies all the allegations against him."

    He should be extradited to the United States for leaking info detrimental to national security.

    I have a feeling he's going to become quite the scapegoat.

    Nothing got leaked that wasn't supposed to be leaked.

    Assange and Oswald are both members of a very exclusive club. :cool:

    He's spending the night 'at Her Majesty's pleasure' (ie in prison). Meanwhile, major credit cards, banks and paypal are refusing to process donations to Wikileaks, and major ISPs are refusing to host the site. Just the beginning of a very bad week for Assange.

    Good.

    He has vowed that if any action or anything happens? He will lay bombshells to take out many...

    Whatever this is supposed to mean?

    Wikileaks uploaded a huge, encrypted "insurance file" to filesharing websites that a number of people have downloaded. The idea is that if the organization is threatened, they'll release the password for this file, which presumably contains a ton of incredibly sensitive information.

    If he thinks that's gonna stop the US or Sweden going after his ass, he's mistaken. Right now, he's struggling to find ISPs prepared to host it, and he's struggling to find a bank etc that will process donations to his site.
