Treason can only be applied when you sell out your own country. He IS NOT an American citizen so he can't be charged with treason in the first place.​
Can someone PLEASE answer my question, who is accusing whom of treason? I'm only aware of some assault allegations in Sweden, who decided to inject the word treason into the debate? :confused:

No-one, Doc - it's like when they interview politicians on TV and they answer THEIR question, not the one they were asked! Guys want to bang on about treason, so they pretend someone raised the issue!;)

Its in the first paragraph. If you have complaints leverage them against the person who wrote the article, not the ppl repeating what they just read.

Yes, the word treason appears in that paragraph, in the context of something that is considered irrelevant to the case - Sweden/UK/Australia aren't looking at safeguards against extradition for treason because nobody is accusing him of it!
It's an assault case.
