Who Is Ola Bini? Swedish Developer Who Visited Assange Arrested In Ecuador

Meanwhile a group of over 70 British MPs has urged the UK Home Secretary, Sajid Javid, to give priority to Sweden over the USA, if the Swedish authorities request his extradition.
The lawmakers signed a letter late Friday urging Home Secretary Sajid Javid to "do everything you can to champion action that will ensure Julian Assange can be extradited to Sweden in the event Sweden makes an extradition request".
"We do not presume guilt, of course, but we believe due process should be followed and the complainant should see justice be done", it says.
Julian Assange "smeared poo on the walls" at the Ecuadorian embassy in London during his seven year stay there when he was claiming asylum, an Ecuadorian minister has claimed. Assange was arrested earlier Thursday at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, and the USA has charged him with conspiring with former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to break into a classified government computer at the Pentagon.
Noting that other sexual assault allegations in Sweden against Assange were already time-bound due to his asylum, the MPs warned: "There is a serious risk that if the United Kingdom does not give every cooperation to any renewed request by Sweden, there could be a further injustice".
Speaking to the Guardian, Elizabeth Massi Fritz, the lawyer for the Swedish woman whose case remains without closure, said the news of Assange's arrest had come as a "shock" to her and her client.
The 47-year-old faces up to 12 months in a British prison after he was found guilty of breaching his bail conditions, while the US charge could attract a maximum jail sentence of five years, according to the US Department of Justice.
Critics of the move, including WikiLeaks editor Kristinn Hrafnsson, have warned the U.S. could add more charges once Assange is extradited.
The official, who wished to remain anonymous, says United States authorities have already sent Britain a provisional arrest warrant regarding Assange's extradition.
Clearly, this is why the U.S. government is so tenaciously pursuing Mr Assange's prosecution - to protect the mechanisms used by the status quo to maintain itself.
However, legal experts have said the Government has very limited powers to block extradition even if there is the political will to do so.
