No role determining Assange extradition

Fredrik Reinfeldt at Thursday's press conference

Speaking to reporters in London Thursday, Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt said his government will play no role in deciding whether Wikileaks founder Julian Assange should be extradited to the United States.

Assange is in Britain, where he is fighting extradition to Sweden over sex-crime allegations. His lawyers claim if he is sent to Sweden he would face being transferred to the U.S., where he might face the death penalty.

Reinfeldt pointed out that Swedish policy is to not extradite people to countries with capital punishment, and he said it would be the courts, not the government, who would make the decision, should the United States file an extradition request.

Reinfeldt was in London to attend the summit of northern European leaders hosted by British Prime Minister David Cameron.
