If the prosecution against him is politically motivated (I think that's the way to bet-- I also think that what he's accused of is really rape, but I don't know whether he's guilty), then we've got a chance of getting it verified.
I don't think an international hunt for someone who was accused of being a serial killer would be put together as quickly as what we've seen against Assange.
