Julian Assange fears he could be taken against his will to the United States and executed if he is extradited to Sweden, his legal team said.

Lawyers for the WikiLeaks founder have asked the Australian government to request assurances from their Swedish counterparts that he would never be removed from their country.

They are concerned the Swedes could ‘bow to U.S. pressure’ or ‘naively’ rely on diplomatic assurances and allow the 39-year-old to be taken across the Atlantic.

In legal papers released as Assange appeared before a district judge at Woolwich Crown Court yesterday, his barrister Geoffrey Robertson QC said he may end up in Guantanamo Bay.

He said there is a ‘real risk’ his client faces further extradition or illegal rendition to the United States if he is sent to Sweden to answer allegations of sexual assault.
