Arrest Warrant Issued WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange … Rape Allegations

 

Julian Assange finds himself in more trouble. Swedish prosecutors have issued an international and European arrest warrant (EAW) for WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange in connection with rape allegations. The “Red Notice” can be seen HERE. Assange denies the rape allegations and called it consensual sex. However, a Swedish Appeals court upheld the warrant.  Assange’s attorney, Mark Stephens, has described the allegations as “false and without basis” and claims that the charges are a part of a smear campaign.

 Interpol wanted notice for Julian Assange
 
The WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, is tonight facing growing legal problems around the world, with the US announcing that it was investigating whether he had violated its espionage laws.

Assange’s details were also added to Interpol’s worldwide wanted list. Dated 30 November, the entry reads: “sex crimes” and says the warrant has been issued by the international public prosecution office in Gothenburg, Sweden. “If you have any information contact your national or local police.” It reads: “Wanted: Assange, Julian Paul,” and gives his birthplace as Townsville, Australia.

But Assange’s most pressing headache is Sweden. Swedish prosecutors have issued an international and European arrest warrant (EAW) for him in connection with rape allegations, and the warrant has been upheld by a Swedish appeal court.

Assange strongly denies any wrongdoing but admits having unprotected but consensual encounters with two women during a visit to Sweden in August.

Mark Stephens, his London-based lawyer, has described the allegations as “false and without basis”, adding that they amount to persecution as part of a cynical smear campaign.

Nonetheless, the Swedes appear determined to force Assange back to Sweden for questioning. Stockholm’s director of public prosecutions, Marianne Ny, said last month: “So far, we have not been able to meet with him to accomplish the interrogation.”

No charges have been brought yet against Julian Assange for the WikiLeaks release of classified documents.

      He should be happy this is the worst he is going to get.

      Had he done what he did to Russia, you can bet that he either 1) would have a bullet in his head, or 2) he would receive a nice cup of radiation tea…..leading to a slow, painful death and an example for future leakers that want to cause trouble (google Litvinenko to understand what I mean).

      If I was him I would submit to the Swedish courts as to stay on the run is a death wish as someone is going to make sure he doesn’t do again what he just did.

      Blame it on CLINTON! Hillary Clinton.

      She gave Army Pfc., Bradley Manning the clearance to read important diplomatic messages.

      The worst Secretary of State! Kissinger just got pushed aside.

      …he did compromise national security and put the lives of our fighting men and women at risk, as well as the Moslem friends and their families who helped our troops over there.

      So considering him an “enemy combatant” is not that much of a stretch.

      He should have stuck with the bank leaks and leave our troops and diplomats alone.

      @Greg the Great: Blame it on Intel. They make computers for reading electronic documents … ;-)
      It is a Big Fail for the IT department of the DoD. Copying data on DVD or USB stick or forwarding documents by email (even with gmail/hotmail) should be secured (or in the first two options, completely disabled).

      the guy deserves a medal for exposing crime and corruption in govt. no security classification exists to protect criminals or criminal conduct. security classifications are to protect the united states from harm.. NOT CORRUPT POLITICIANS. IN the us govt security classifications are used to protect crime and corruption MORE than they are secrets.. we sold/sell ICBM secrets to china.. only cryptology is more harmfull to usa. yet we bust this guy .. for revealing how slimy and lying our govt is. give this guy a medal.. expose the traitors and criminals for what they are.. and stop being slimballs as a country.. ignorance is not an excuse.
