Why didn't he do an Assange?
He could have made out that if he was sent back to Sweden he would extradited to the US to be gang raped by the MPAA and RIAA and took a stay at "Hotel some random dictatorship embassy".
Gottfrid Svartholm Warg, a co-founder of download haven The Pirate Bay, is back in Sweden - and now faces allegations of playing a role in an attack on the country's taxmen and IT consultancy biz Logica.
