WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is back in court for the second day of a hearing on whether he should be sent to Sweden to face sexual assault allegations.

His lawyer, Geoffrey Robertson, told the court Monday that Assange would not get a fair trial because of his notoriety and because Swedish rape cases are customarily held without the public present, to protect the alleged victims.

But the lawyer representing Sweden, Clare Montgomery, countered that Swedish trials are based on the principle that everyone deserves a fair and public hearing.

The head of the secrets-spilling site has been accused of sexual misconduct by two women he met during a visit to Stockholm last year. He denies wrongdoing.

The hearing is set to end Tuesday.
