    Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is still in custody in a British jail while his legal team prepares to fight his extradition to Sweden, where he is wanted for alleged sexual misconduct against two women.

    Al Jazeera's Nazanine Moshiri has travelled to Stockholm to speak to Claes Borgstrom, a lawyer for the two women, who denied any political motivations behind the allegations.

    Borgstrom said the high-profile case is actually pouring much unwanted attention on his clients.

    Assange, an Australian who does not live in Sweden, denies the allegations and says they are part of a smear campaign.
