"Swedish police should have arrested WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange as soon as prosecutors wanted to question him on rape allegations, a witness said Tuesday. Sven-Erik Alhem, a former Swedish prosecutor called by Assange's defense team, said during the second day of an extradition hearing in London that Assange should have been permitted to offer his version once two women alleged he raped them, The Guardian reported. Prosecuting and defense attorneys are arguing whether Assange, 39, should be extradited to Sweden to face sex-crime accusations for which he has yet to be charged." (02/08/11)
