Assange


This Assange case is confusing me.


  • He's not been officially charged with any crime and yet a European Arrest Warrant has been issued.
  • Notwithstanding the above, I have read that he cannot be charged before being arrested, which can only be done in Sweden.
  • He made himself available for questioning while still in Sweden, an offer that was inexplicably refused at the time and has not been addressed.
  • Due process has not been followed in Sweden - that's from Sven-Erik Alhem, a previous Swedish public prosecutor - an example being that both accusers were interviewed together, rather than separately; that alone allows for contamination of oral evidence. Not only that, but Assange's name was released to the press - another contravention of due process.
  • The allegations were made long after the events, and the accusers 'appear' to have been persuaded to make the accusations, as they previously stated that sex was consensual.
  • Assange has offered to be interviewed in the UK - an offer that was also refused without any reason being given.There are many precedents of accused being interviewed abroad by Swedish authorities.
  • Any cursory reading of the history of Sweden's rape laws shows they are out of control and driven by a feminist agenda in which the presumption of innocence has gone.
Something is rotten in the state of Denmark - or rather Sweden - and the whole case reeks of political interference. Sweden and the US are closely tied at political level.

What also concerns me is that the UK media and establishment seems to have come out against Assange despite all the questions that remain to be answered. It's almost as if once the question of rape comes into the frame, it's heresy not to toe the feminist line.

  1. I think that is why the accusations of rape were made...to muddy the waters.

    As Sweden has the same sort of one sided extradition arrangement with the U.S. as has Britain I wouldn't give much for his chances of escaping extradition to the U.S. on terrorist charges once he enters Sweden.

    He seems a rum sort of chap.....but his organisation did a good job.
