Arguably Assange was simply abusing his political background in order to avoid facing rape charges; or are his concerns about extradition to the USA from Sweden real? Apparently it is easier for the US to extradite Assange from the UK than Sweden, fuelling the abuse...

I'm not suggesting that there was an abuse- I'm asking if people believe that there was, and if so by whom? Assange? Ecuador? The US? Political asylum is obviously a legitimate and established protocol.
Sorry to have misread you, then. Assange is a difficult character, but no one could have done what he has without being that. I side with those who believe the US government is behind the harassment of him. That is where any abuse lies.
He wasn't charged by the US, he is wanted for questioning in Sweden. The two have nothing to do with each other. If he did nothing wrong then he should just go answer the questions and be done with it. It sickens me how blind his supporters are.
blind? he messes with the U.S. government and suddenly he is charge with crimes that no one forgive anyone for. i'm not a supporter, it just makes me sick how so many people let their government commit any crimes for "national security"
