Swedish PM in WikiLeaks row

A lawyer for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has accused Sweden's prime minister of damaging his client's chances of a fair trial for alleged sex crimes by portraying him as “public enemy number one.” Assange’s lawyer Geoffrey Robertson, opposing a Swedish bid to extradite the Australian from Britain, said Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt had created a "toxic atmosphere" in Sweden with what he said was an inflammatory statement about Assange. The Belmarsh Magistrates’ Court hearing has been adjourned until February 24, when an extradition ruling is expected.
