Assange claims women went to police for advice only


The Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange, has told the BBC he is fighting a Swedish extradition warrant over accusations that he sexually assaulted two women because he believes he would be held incommunicado and his Swedish lawyer would be gagged.

In an interview for the Today programme, he said he believed the women went to the police simply for advice and not to make a complaint.
