Assange lawyers raise specter of Guantanamo Bay

London (CNN) — WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said Monday a two-day hearing on whether to extradite him to Sweden is finally lifting the lid on sexual misconduct allegations he says are false and have blighted his reputation for months.

Assange was at Woolwich Crown Court in south London, where celebrities watched as Assange’s lawyers argued against his transfer to Sweden.
