The Megrahi case deserves to be brought into the discussion because it's another example of the British using politics to trump their judicial decisions, something happening in the Assange case as well.
"Your were the person who brought Megrahi into the discussion and you got the name wrong. So, before you blame someone for "trying to distract from the main issue at hand" you better make sure you can edit your comments."
I "better make sure..." Or what?

Its all well and good to talk about moving him to Sweden under Quito's protection. However, it ignores the fact that he has broken bail law in the UK, an office which can carry a custodial sentence.
If he thinks he was justified in doing this then fair enough, he should argue this when he's brought to trial. Hopefully (for his sake) his arguments will be a little more solid than those put forward during the extradition hearings.

You still seem to not understand. It was you who brought Uthman Megrahi into the discussion, and claimed that he was a terrorist. Which he is not.
Instead of accepting the correcting in the manner it was intended you wrote "Who cares what the Pan Am bomber Megrahi's first name was? Talk about trying to distract from the main issue at hand." Which in on itself is a strange.
It was perplexing when investigation into Uthman Megrahi found out that there was no mention of any terrorist attacks associated to him. Yeah, who care if a man who freed political prisoners is attributed to being a terrorist. It really does not really matter. Libyans are all the same, right.
You were wrong. Just drop it, and move on.
The further irony is that "Megrahi" demonstrates that governments do change. In one case government was accused to support state sponsored terrorism and labeling its enemies as criminals. While the next government freed those "political prisoners" imprisoned under the previous regime.
Governments do change, but not as radically as in Libyan.

I was wrong about Megrahi's first name. I was right about the hypocracy of the British authorities of refusing safe passage to a true political refugee, J. Assange, when they granted safe passage to a terrorist murderer for purposes of commercial interest.
Which is more important?

Stressing the importance of some crimes over others serves no purpose. This does not diminish any frustration when authorities refuse to investigate or later prosecute a crime.
Convicted murder Megrahi had terminal cancer before he was sent home, and which is not a case of "safe passage" being granted.
Ecuador's fault was not securing safe passage for Assange before granting him asylum. Quito is consistently oblivious that the UK has a legal obligation to extradite Assange.
Assange is not a "political refugee," as the accusations are for non-political crimes, specifically of violating others rights.
Assange's lawyers did present concerns about Assange being extradited to Sweden. Those include the ones that Ecuador used to grant him asylum. Those concerns were all found to be without merit in three level of the UK courts.

Congratulations, mob mentality is alive and well in Sweden. Maybe it's the government worshipping socialist sheep mindset along with the vodka guzzling northern cold. Sweden has become one of the laughing stocks of the world with these bizarre "broken condom" accusations. which nobody in his right mind would take seriously, except perhaps a lot of tall blonde (and repulsive) whip cracking leather wearing swedish "feminist" crackpots. The whole stupid charade is a pathetic try at crushing free speech by discrediting or imprisoning the messenger, and imprisoning people without even being charged (which is impossible since there's no crime) with Swedish secret service colluding with UK secret service and the CIA to send its prostitutes for this failure of a mission. This is not something new, Sweden is a country that has colluded with the CIA in illegal renditions and torture for ten years. Its government follows any US/NATO orders, human rights are clearly a hindrance to today's Sweden.
