Wikileaks’ Julian Assange ‘fears US death penalty’

Posted: January 11, 2011 in Uncategorized

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, who published leaked US diplomatic cables, fears he could face the death penalty in the US, defence documents say.

He is fighting extradition from the UK to Sweden over allegations, which he denies, of sexual offences against two women.

His lawyer said there was a “real risk” the US would then seek extradition over the leaking of the diplomatic cables.
