Maybe the sentence "High treason is considered a serious offense, and carries the death penalty in many countries." could be changed a bit. According to the wikipages on capital punishment, only 36 countries and territories (out of 197 listed) carry capital punishment for treason or high treason, some of them only during war time or under other special circumstances.

I looked up to this voice as I heard that J.Assange may be incriminated for "High treason" from the US. Reading this voice is not clear how an Australian citizen may be incriminated by a different country of high treason. Is it the voice incomplete or did I miss some elements? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 13:03, 17 August 2012 (UTC)
