Movies Julian Assange’s Extradition From UK to US Approved by UK Govt

1 February 2012 Last updated at 01:00 GMT

Assange Extradition case to be heard by Supreme Court

BBC UK, 1st Feb 2012




Wikileaks founder Julian Assange claims the allegations against him are politically motivated


The UK Supreme Court is due to consider an appeal by the Wikileaks founder Julian Assange against his extradition to Sweden.
Britain's highest court has said seven justices will hear the arguments because of the "great public importance of the issue raised" by the case.
A spokesman said the issue was "whether a prosecutor is a judicial authority".


Mr Assange is wanted by Swedish authorities for questioning over alleged sex offences, which he denies.
The 40-year-old Australian, who remains on conditional bail in the UK, claims the allegations against him are politically motivated.
He is accused of raping one woman and "sexually molesting and coercing" another in Stockholm in August 2010.
Mr Assange's Wikileaks website published a mass of material from leaked diplomatic cables embarrassing several governments.


The High Court previously approved his extradition, a decision that Mr Assange argues was unlawful.
In December, two High Court judges, Sir John Thomas and Mr Justice Ouseley, decided that Mr Assange had raised a question on extradition law "of general public importance" and allowed him to ask the Supreme Court for a final UK ruling.


Later that month, a Supreme Court spokesman said its justices had agreed to hear the case "given the great public importance of the issue raised, which is whether a prosecutor is a judicial authority".


The hearing will last two days and the judgement is expected to be reserved.

Default Senator Julian Assange...

‘’Senator Julian Assange–Not as Crazy as it Sounds
By Steve Huff
Okay, perhaps it's a little crazy.


Head Wikileaker and house arrestee Julian Assange has been pondering a run for the Australian Senate. Before you even quirk an eyebrow at the prospect of a “Senator Assange,” note that a recent survey by Australian Labor Party pollsters indicates Mr. Assange could garner nearly 25% of the vote. Agence France-Presse reports members of “the left-wing Greens party were most likely to be pro-Assange, with 39 percent saying they would vote for him.”

In a sampling of 1,000 potential voters, nearly equal percentages of Labor and conservative supporters also indicated they might vote for Mr. Assange, who is currently on bail in England after being accused of “sexual molestation” in Sweden.

Mr. Assange is essentially under house arrest while he waits to see if he’ll be extradited but that hasn’t stopped him from launching a TV show in addition to exploring a future in politics. His World Tomorrow airs on RT and has featured guests such as Hassan Nasrallah, the Secretary General of Hebollah and Ecuador’s president, Rafael Correa.

Agence France-Presse also reports that Wikileaks, as an organization, is prepared to field a candidate against Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard in 2013.

Correction: An earlier version of this post said Mr. Assange was “charged with” sexual molestation. At this point he has not been officially charged.


Yeah, he's crazy alright but maybe not as crazy as one would think.

I'm not to sure that Julian has not come up with a way to beat the US charges this way. If he gains senior politician status, he is in essence immune to US extradition, much the same way as a diplomat. As long as he stays in office it is my understanding that the US will just have to whistle and wait. Julian will be able to do whatever, including flying to the US on official business and not have any hassles whatever from the US other than possibly the No Fly list. It is even conceivable that he could get his name removed from that list as a major politician in Australia. Even if he doesn't I don't suspect that it would really matter to him.

There's something else in this story. It strikes a chord with the Occupy movement. Both wish transparency of government. Both when it comes down to it want protections for whistle blowers. Obama has used the spy bill that against all whistle blowers that have exposed major government actions that were mistakes. Not because aid was given to the enemy but because that is the most severe charge he can bring against whistle blowers. He himself, has used this charge more than all other presidents in the history of the US, combined. For someone that ran on transparency of government for his first election this action has shown he is for anything but transparency.

Whistle blowers are necessary to catch government agencies and politician office holders when they circumvent or break the law. Without them, you don't find out. Whistle blowers know where the skeletons are hid, where the keys are, and why they are hid. Without this info it is much harder to apprehend the criminal minded with a good chance that even if you know about such actions without the evidence you can't prove it.

Now I am not a birther but I suspect there is something here that Obama is hiding and that just might be it. Understand right up front, I don't care what the race, gender, nor sexual preference, of the president or any other politician is. What I care about is what they do. I don't have to live in the same house, don't have to hear them every day, so what that comes down to is those traits have no effect on my life from any politician just because they happen to hold a seat or office. Their actions that they perform in office is a whole 'nother ball of wax. That effects me when they make laws and that is what concerns me.

It seems much of where the government is headed and probably more importantly how it intends to get there that is my concern along with lots of other citizens that are speaking up and saying so.

Update ...Assange urges US to end Wikileaks 'witch-hunt'

Julian Assange urges US to end Wikileaks 'witch-hunt'
Mr Assange called for the US government to "renounce its witch hunt against Wikileaks"

Julian Assange has urged the US to end its "witch-hunt" against Wikileaks, in his first public statement since entering Ecuador's London embassy.

He also called for the release of Bradley Manning, who is awaiting trial in the US accused of leaking classified documents to the Wikileaks site.

Mr Assange spoke from a balcony at the embassy and thanked Ecuador's president, who has granted him asylum.

He faces extradition to Sweden over sexual assault claims, which he denies.

The 41-year-old said the United States must also stop its "war on whistleblowers".

He added: "The United States must vow that it will not seek to prosecute our staff or our supporters.

"The United States must pledge before the world that it will not pursue journalists for shining a light on the secret crimes of the powerful.

Mr Assange also said the United States was facing a choice between re-affirming the "revolutionary values it was founded on" or "dragging us all into a dangerous and oppressive world in which journalists fall silent under the fear of prosecution and citizens must whisper in the dark".

The show for today is over, but the stand-off at the Ecuadorean embassy and the diplomatic row over Julian Assange's fate are not.

Britain says it won't grant the Wikileaks' leader safe passage so he can go to Ecuador, but it has had to back away from a warning it made last week that it could find a legal basis to enter the embassy and arrest Mr Assange.

That deeply riled not only Ecuador, but other countries in South America. It also provoked doubts about its legality. Given the potential international ramifications, it's highly unlikely British police will storm into the ground-floor mission.

But neither is it likely that Britain or Sweden will give the guarantees that Ecuador and Mr Assange want - that he won't face onward extradition to the US.

So for now the stalemate continues. Police are posted at both the front and back of the Ecuadorean embassy to ensure Julian Assange doesn't escape - and Britain is faced with a costly security operation.

The US is carrying out an investigation into Wikileaks, which has published a mass of leaked diplomatic cables, embarrassing several governments and international businesses.

Alleged Wikileaks source Bradley Manning, 24, an intelligence analyst in the American army who served in Iraq, is alleged to have leaked US government cables to the whistle-blowing website. He is set to face a court martial.

In an interview for US television in 2010, Mr Assange denied any knowledge of Pte Manning.

Mr Assange began his speech by thanking his supporters, many of whom have been holding a vigil outside the building in Knightsbridge.

Speaking of the visit by police officers to the embassy on Wednesday, Mr Assange said: "Inside this embassy after dark, I could hear teams of police swarming up into the building through its internal fire escape. But I knew there would be witnesses and that is because of you.

"If the UK did not throw away the Vienna Conventions the other night it is because the world was watching and the world was watching because you were watching."

It is an established international convention that local police and security forces are not permitted to enter an embassy, unless they have the express permission of the ambassador.

The Foreign Office has said it remained committed to reaching a "negotiated solution" but following its obligations under the Extradition Act, it would arrest Mr Assange if he left the embassy.
'Binding obligation'

In 2010, two female ex-Wikileaks volunteers accused Mr Assange, an Australian citizen, of committing sexual offences against them while he was in Stockholm to give a lecture.

Mr Assange claims the sex was consensual and the allegations are politically motivated.

In a statement issued after the Ecuadorean decision to grant Mr Assange political asylum, Foreign Secretary William Hague said the UK was under a "binding obligation" to extradite him to Sweden.
Julian Assange talking with his legal adviser Baltasar Garzon Julian Assange has been talking with his legal adviser Baltasar Garzon inside the Ecuadorean embassy

Mr Assange entered the embassy after the UK's Supreme Court dismissed his bid to reopen his appeal against extradition and gave him a two-week grace period before extradition proceedings could start.

Ecuador's president Rafael Correa has suggested Mr Assange could co-operate with Sweden if assurances are given that there would be no extradition to a third country.

Shortly before Mr Assange delivered his speech, his legal adviser Baltasar Garzon said the Australian had told lawyers to carry out "a legal action" protecting "the rights of Wikileaks [and] Julian himself".

Mr Garzon, a former judge, did not give specific details of the action but said it would also extend to "all those currently being investigated".

Barrister and former government lawyer, Carl Gardner, said Mr Assange's options were now severely limited.

"There's no legal action he can take now. All he can do is make these public calls for people to do things he would like them to do and play a waiting game with the British authorities.

"The British government is likely to think that time is on their side. It's Julian Assange who is stuck in this embassy. It's the Ecuadoreans who have the problem of him on their hands and perhaps one of them is likely to tire of the situation before Britain."

-------------------------

In responce to Assange's news statement, the US put out this:

State Department: The U.S. does not recognize the concept of ‘diplomatic asylum’
By Josh Rogin

Siding with the Brits in their escalating feud with Ecuador about the status of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, the State Department declared today that the United States does not believe in the concept of ‘diplomatic asylum' as a matter of international law.

Ecuador dragged Britain into an emergency meeting of the Permanent Council of the Organization of American States Friday at OAS headquarters in Washington, calling for a foreign ministers' meeting following the British threat to go into the Ecuadoran embassy in London and get Assange, who is wanted for questioning in connection with sexual assault charges in Sweden.

Ecuador formally granted Assange political asylum Thursday, but today the State Department said the United States doesn't agree that such a thing exists.

"The United States is not a party to the 1954 OAS Convention on Diplomatic Asylum and does not recognize the concept of diplomatic asylum as a matter of international law," the office of Spokesperson Victoria Nuland said in a Friday statement. "We believe this is a bilateral issue between Ecuador and the United Kingdom and that the OAS has no role to play in this matter."

That statement is a shift from the stance the State Department took yesterday, when Nuland said that Washington would stay out of the dispute and that the American position was that the Brits were making decisions based on British, not international law.

"This is an issue between the Ecuadorans, the Brits, the Swedes," Nuland said Thursday. "It is an issue among the countries involved and we're not planning to interject ourselves."

The United States can only formally grant asylum to political figures once they actually are on U.S. soil, as dictated by the Refugee Act of 1980. But the U.S. has a long record of protecting political targets inside U.S. embassy complexes, most recently with Chinese blind dissident Chen Guangcheng last December.

That might seem like a distinction without a difference to many. However, Chen never sought or was granted asylum; he simply asked to study in the United States and the Chinese government eventually assented.

In 1989, the U.S. granted "temporary refuge" to Feng Lizhi, a leader of the Tiananmen Square pro-democracy movement, who fled to the U.S. Embassy in Beijing and stayed there for 384 days before Chinese authorities allowed him to go to the United States, but officially only for "medical treatment."

Joseph Stalin's daughter Svetlana sought refuge in 1967 via the U.S. Embassy in India and was eventually granted U.S. citizenship.


I find it rather odd, this whole set of circumstances.

In the first place, the warrant that Sweden has sought for Assange, has some very suspicious parts to it. One of them, is if the two women in question thought it was a rape issue and not the consensual sex that Julian claims, why didn't they press for this at the start when they knew he planned to leave Sweden? It was quite some time later that one and then the other joined in this. Next thing you should know, is that Sweden has an unusal law about sex. It is considered there that without use of a condom it is considered sexual assault. Sweden is the only country I know of with this law. The women in question always had the option to say 'no, not without the condom'. But no one hears of that.

Another item in all this is that Sweden prosecutors want to talk to Assange, is the claim. Yet they don't want to talk to him so bad as to make a trip to the UK to do so. He's offered twice, once through the time on bond in the UK and again while he is in the Ecuadoran Embassy to talk to them and both times they are not interested in doing so under those circumstances which leads more than one to think there is something more behind it than just the publicly claimed reason is they want to talk to him.

The US has long observed the sanctity of diplomatic embassies. There was all sorts of hue and cry over the bombing of the US Embassies in various parts of the Middle East and why the local police forces weren't doing more to protect them. Eventually it led to removing the people working in those embassies and closing them down, because their security wasn't observed. The people working there had become targets to and from work.

If you don't believe the US thinks embassies are granted certain protections, then what about the Russian Embassy built in Russia for the US? At the time there was a real stink over it. The US contracted various Russian businesses to build the embassy for them. At near the end of completion it was found out that the whole structure was hopelessly embedded with spying apparatus, buried in the the entire structure to listen in on what was going on and what concerns the Americans would have over things. The embassy was never used for it's intended purpose and the US never moved in.

Diplomats themselves are granted certain immunities. Time and again in the US, those who have broken laws within the US have been let go, because of that immunity and allowed to return to their countries. Strauss-Kahn could have walked free without facing the charge of rape within the US had he chosen to.

During the Cold War time and again, both the US and Russia have observed diplomatic immunity and embassy sanctity on both sides. So the claim of not being a signatory of a treaty does not mean it hasn't been observed. That coupled with the claim this is between others and not anything of it's interest is disingenuous and a weasel out.

Last I would call attention to the Obama administration who has used the Espionage Act to prosecute whistle blowers time and again, for releasing confidential info, not flattering to this administration. He's used it 6 times which is double of all the rest of the presidents of the US throughout it's history. At the same time, leaks to the press that are beneficial are never pursued.

Wikileaks released info on the war in Afghanistan showing the killing of civilians, a claim the US at the time denied more than once. It also released what became known as Cablegate. A list of dirty deeds pulled by the US in other countries. While unflattering it was not extremely damaging. The fear the US had of exposure of some of its foreign operatives never materialized as Wikileaks used several major newspapers to edit what should be and should not be released to protect them. Not the mark of someone wishing the US all the damage it could reap.

I personally think that Assange has named it correctly with the term 'witch hunt'.

Julian Assange: Ecuador grants Wikileaks founder asylum





Julian Assange's Wikileaks website published leaked diplomatic cables

BBC World News

Ecuador has granted asylum to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange two months after he took refuge in its London embassy while fighting extradition from the UK.
It said his human rights might be violated if he is sent to Sweden to be questioned over sex assault claims.
Foreign Secretary William Hague said the UK would not allow Mr Assange safe passage out of the country and the move was also criticised by Stockholm.
Ecuador said it would seek to negotiate arrangements for Mr Assange to leave.
"We don't think it is reasonable that, after a sovereign government has made the decision of granting political asylum, a citizen is forced to live in an embassy for a long period," Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino said.
Mr Assange took refuge at the embassy in June to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he faces questioning over assault and rape claims, which he denies.
Mr Patino had accused the UK of making an "open threat" to enter its embassy to arrest Mr Assange, an Australian national.



Ecuador's foreign minister Ricardo Patino: "We believe that his fears are legitimate"

Mr Assange said being granted political asylum by Ecuador was a "significant victory" and thanked staff in the Ecuadorean embassy in London.
However, as the Foreign Office insisted the decision would not affect the UK's legal obligation to extradite him to Sweden, Mr Assange warned: "Things will get more stressful now."
"It was not Britain or my home country, Australia, that stood up to protect me from persecution, but a courageous, independent Latin American nation," said Mr Assange, who watched the announcement with embassy staff in a live link to a press conference in Quito.
"While today is a historic victory, our struggles have just begun. The unprecedented US investigation against Wikileaks must be stopped.

Quote:
"While today much of the focus will be on the decision of the Ecuadorean government, it is just as important that we remember Bradley Manning has been detained without trial for over 800 days," he said, referring to the former US soldier accused of leaking government material to Wikileaks.
Analysis -
Dominic Casciani BBC Home affairs correspondent;

Quote:
Political asylum is not available to anyone facing a serious non-political crime - such as the allegations levelled against Mr Assange.
But does his new status mean he can now leave his Swedish problems behind? No. Asylum does not equal immunity from prosecution - and Julian Assange needs safe passage through UK territory that he won't get.
Mr Assange knows he can't leave without risking arrest by officers waiting outside. The police can't enter the embassy unless the government revokes its status.
Embassy vehicles are protected by law from police searches - but how could he get into an Ecuadorean car without being apprehended? And what happens after he's in the car? At some point he will have to get out again. Stranger things have happened.
In 1984 there was an attempt to smuggle a Nigerian man from the UK in a so-called "diplomatic bag" protected from inspection. The bag was in fact a large crate - and customs officers successfully intercepted it at the airport.
END


But surely if Ecuador makes Julian Assange an "Honorary" Representative on their Security Council in the UN, he can be protected from any action by the UK & the US

Just my thoughts- LBB

Default Re: ...Assange urges US to end Wikileaks 'witch-hunt'

There were rumours that the UK, at the request of the US, would storm the Ecuador's Embassy and detain Julian Assange, but that was later refuted. However the other day 60 Police vans pulled up outside that embassy with the intent of storming it using an obscure
law to seize Assange.;


'Legal Obligation'

Announcing Ecuador's decision, Mr Patino, (Ecuador's foreign minister), launched a strong attack on the UK for what he said was an "explicit type of blackmail".

The UK Foreign Office had warned, in a note, that it could lift the embassy's diplomatic status to fulfil a "legal obligation" to extradite the 41-year-old by using the Diplomatic and Consular Premises Act 1987.

That allows the UK to revoke the diplomatic status of an embassy on UK soil, which would potentially allow police to enter the building to arrest Mr Assange for breaching the terms of his bail.

Mr Hague said it was a "matter of regret" that the Ecuadorean government decided to grant Mr Assange political asylum but warned that it "does not change the fundamentals" of the case.

He also warned that it could drag on for some "considerable" time.

"We will not allow Mr Assange safe passage out of the United Kingdom, nor is there any legal basis for us to do so," he said.

Scuffles broke out outside the Ecuadorean embassy

Mr Hague said there was "no threat" to storm the embassy.

"We are talking about an Act of Parliament in this country which stresses that it must be used in full conformity with international law," he said.

Mr Patino said Ecuador believed Mr Assange's fears of political persecution were "legitimate" and said his country was being loyal to its tradition of protecting those who were vulnerable.

He later told BBC Mundo that conditions were attached to the asylum.

"We placed the same type of conditions that are the norm in international relations, such as him [Mr Assange] not making political statements that could affect our relations with friendly countries."

The Foreign Office said it was "disappointed" by the Ecuador statement and said it remained committed to reaching a "negotiated solution" that would allow it to carry out its "obligations under the Extradition Act". This means Mr Assange's arrest would still be sought if he left the embassy.

Sweden Summons Ambassador

The Swedish government reacted angrily to Mr Patino's suggestion that Mr Assange would not be treated fairly by its justice system, summoning Ecuador's ambassador to explain.

"The accusations... are serious, and it is unacceptable that Ecuador would want to halt the Swedish judicial process and European judicial co-operation," said Anders Joerle, spokesman for the Swedish foreign ministry.

The Organisation of American States called a special meeting at its Washington headquarters on Thursday to discuss the Ecuador-UK relationship, specifically Ecuador's diplomatic premises in the UK.

The Union of South American Nations, meanwhile, has convened an "extraordinary meeting" in Ecuador on Sunday to consider "the situation raised at the embassy".

Mr Assange entered the embassy after the UK's Supreme Court dismissed his bid to reopen his appeal against extradition and gave him a two-week grace period before extradition proceedings could start.

It was during that fortnight, while on bail, that he sought refuge.

A subsequent offer by Ecuador to allow Swedish investigators to interview Mr Assange inside the embassy was rejected.

The Wikileaks website Mr Assange founded published a mass of leaked diplomatic cables that embarrassed several governments, particularly that of the US, in 2010.

Mr Assange says he fears that if extradited to Sweden, he will then be passed on to the American authorities.

In 2010, two female ex-Wikileaks volunteers accused Mr Assange of committing sexual offences against them while he was in Stockholm to give a lecture.

Mr Assange claims the sex was consensual and the allegations are politically motivated.

Pirate Pirates and Wikileaks Join Forces

Pirates and Wikileaks Share Battlefield In Aussie Election

16 Feb 2013

In September, debutante parties representing both will face off at the Aussie ballot box.

In the purple corner, the Rick Falkvinge inspired Pirate Party. In the black corner, the newly formed Wikileaks Party with Julian Assange himself running as candidate-in-chief for a senate seat in the southern state of Victoria.

Despite currently wallowing in London’s Ecuadorian Embassy and facing constitutional hurdles, Assange’s senate candidacy is alive and kicking. Victoria is also expected to deliver the Pirate Party a small, but statistically significant vote. Australians have a soft spot for Wikileaks and piracy – though its yet to be determined how this popularity will translate into election votes.

Australia operates two parliaments at a national level, much like the United States and Britain. The lower house uses an electoral system similar to the United Kingdom’s House of Commons or the United State’s House of Representatives, candidates slugging it out for a single seat in numerous electorates.

But Australia’s senate, where the Pirates and Wikileaks will face-off, has more in common with many of Europe’s parliaments and operates on a state-by-state proportional representation system.

Then, just to make things interesting, each voter is allowed to mark down preferences. If a voter’s primary candidate does not achieve the required quota to get elected, their vote spills down to the second preference, then third, forth, fifth and so on, until it finds a candidate with enough votes to achieve a quota. The system has seen all manner of minor parties snare a seat in the Australian senate, from hard-right religious zealots and large voting blocks of Greens through to a blacksmith.

Victoria will elect six senators in September. If voting patterns follow the 2010 election, four or five seats will be gobbled up by entrenched major parties, leaving the remaining one or two to be squabbled over by Greens and other minors and independents.

It is during these squabbles that preferences become critical. Our blacksmith managed to get himself elected in Victoria with just under two per cent of the primary vote. Preferences did the rest.

The final piece of the puzzle is that parties can officially direct their faithful on how to allocate preferences. It’s not mandatory, but it is strongly followed by most voters because ticking a box that says “what the party I like wants” is much easier than numbering upwards of sixty candidates individually. Voting is mandatory in Australia. Bored and disaffected voters like to get the process over and done with as quickly as possible.

Wikileaks and the pirates are yet to announce what preference “deals” they will be making with other parties. Major party strategists agonize over these deals because they can be critical in winning a tightly contested seat. The major parties often preference each other last while doing deals with minors such as the Greens.

The Wikileaks and Pirate Parties both appeal to a similar demographic of voters – often young, technologically-minded people who believe in open government. But there are points of difference.

Some Pirate Party members are openly hostile towards Wikileaks. Type Assange into Pirate Party Australia’s very open IRC chat rooms and you will be hit with a range of opinions from full support to total derision.

The Pirate Party will be putting preference deals to a membership vote later this year. Party vice president Simon Frew said he could not predict how the voting would go.

“It would be safe to say both Wikileaks and the Greens would be preferenced highly and the major parties significantly lower due to their appalling policies on copyright and patents, surveillance and civil liberties,” Mr Frew told Torrentfreak.

The newly formed Wikileaks Party is not yet ready to discuss how preferences will be allocated, if at all, according to insiders.

Some Pirate Party supporters have worried openly about how the looming match-up could split the vote, denying both parties a chance at election. Preferencing away from each other could potentially damage both.

Falkvinge and Assange probably never imagined when they had drinks together back in August 2010 that the movements each has spearheaded would end up contesting an Australian election. Photos from that night depict easy-going, natural allies.

Three years on, the Wikileaks and Pirate Parties are set for a political fight, but symbolic of the ideals of both – sharing not competing – may prove the best strategy.

Hacker Julian Assange-Court Hearing Whether to Lift Detention-in Absentia

LIVE: Detention Lift Hearings For Julia Assange, Stockholm District Court

Posted: 17 Jul 2014 -
OnAir by Falkvinge (Founder of The Pirate Party)


Sweden: At 13:00 yesterday, hearings began in the Stockholm District Court whether to lift the almost-four-year-old detention in absentia for Julian Assange. This is live reporting from the court hearings, which will be followed by a press conference by the Police.



Quote:
Jul 16 14:59 - The court takes a twenty-minute break.

Jul 16 14:59 - Defense repeats earlier points that Prosecution must have understood that Assange can’t stay in Sweden forever, and that Assange can be hard to reach, and hammers home the point that absolutely nothing in this justifies the use of force that Prosecution has applied.

Jul 16 14:58 - Defense: “There’s a completely unreasonable dragging-out of time here, causing significant harm to Assange. It has been in everybody’s interest to just go there and hear him, but this hasn’t even been tried.”

Jul 16 14:57 - Defense accuses Prosecution of being plain lazy in not going to London to hear Assange. “It’s too much work.”

Jul 16 14:56 - Defense compares to a case where somebody was suspected of genocide, a much more serious crime, and had been detained for three years. This had been appealed to the European Court of Justice, and after three years, the case was dropped because the defendant had not had a speedy trial. This case has now dragged on for three and a half years. “If he hadn’t complained to the ECJ, he wouldn’t have been detained for three years, so it’s his own fault”, by the Prosecution’s logic. However, the Supreme Court is brutal in its verdict that a person exhausting their legal options cannot and must not be held against them.

Jul 16 14:52 - Defense: “Assange was granted political asylum by Ecuador on August 16, 2012. There has been a clear and present danger in the form of threats from the United States, ranging from extradition to plain assassination and execution. The United Kingdom is bound to respect Ecuador’s asylum. Assange has been on the Ecuadorian embassy since June 19, 2012, which has cost the British [enormous amount] and which the British is starting to consider Sweden liable for. In all this time, Assange has not even been able to go outdoors, something normally considered a human right – even detainees in jail are given outdoors time. However, since Assange has shown no intention of surrendering his asylum, there is no purpose to continued detention: it serves no purpose and must therefore be lifted. Assange has a full legal right to maintain his political asylum, and therefore, the detention serves no further purpose. This has now dragged on for three years and six months. In this time, in all this time, Assange has been restrained in various ways, everything from jail to something resembling a permanent house arrest.”

Jul 16 14:47 - Defense: “During these one and a half years, Assange has not been able to maintain a normal life. This is not a British citizen but an Australian citizen. He has been unable to have an income, unable to keep in touch with his family. He has been trapped in a foreign country, unable to fulfill professional or social obligations. Prosecution has used very unusual force in locking Assange in London in this way.”

Jul 16 14:45 - Defense: “During these one and a half years, Assange’s freedom was severely restricted: he was unable to travel, unable to see his family, and unable to have an income, and this was solely use to Prosecution’s actions and use of force. It is clear to the Defense that the Prosecution has been obligated to go to London and hear him: Assange has been unable to travel to Sweden because of Prosecution’s very actions. Defense refers to a case where the prosecution says it’s “impractical” to hear a defendent abroad, coming across as plain lazy. This case was struck down by the Supreme Court for the specific reason that the defendant had repeatedly invited Prosecution to hear him on location. Defense draws clear and direct parallels to this case, except this case is much more serious with disproportionate effects.

Jul 16 14:41 - Defense: “On December 7, Assange was apprehended and detained in London. From December 16, he was electronically shackled with an obligation to report daily to a police station. He was in partial house arrest. He had had his passport rescinded, and had been ordered by a court to not acquire travel documents. So from December 7, 2010, until June 14, 2012, Assange had no practical possibility of coming to Sweden for a hearing. Prosecution’s argument that Julian could have let himself be arrested is nonsense; an accused always has a right to exhaust their legal options, and this must never be held against them.”

Jul 16 14:39 - Defense: “There has never ever been a statement from Assange to refuse a hearing.”

Jul 16 14:37 - Defense: “It’s easy to see, looking at the time frame leading up to September 27, that Assange has showed up to a hearing, has stayed in Sweden, has asked the prosecution whether there would be a problem leaving Sweden, and that Assange could not stay in Sweden indefinitely waiting for whatever the Prosecution was doing. Nowhere here is there anything constituting anything resembling a flight risk (in the legal sense). Also, there was nothing preventing Prosecution and Assange to agree on a date for a hearing, and there was a tentative date set in October. It’s correct that it was hard to reach Assange. But this was a PRACTICAL matter, which does never constitute a flight risk. Flight risk must be based on intent of flight, not practical difficulties.“

Jul 16 14:34 - Defense: “Assange leaving Sweden on September 27, 2010 was planned well in advance and was based on a planned keynote in Berlin, and was not related to this case or any imaginary flight risk.”

Jul 16 14:33 - Defense enumerates the threat situations against Assange, and shows an article from American media with the headline “Assassinate Assange”, with his face on a target. Defense argues that it’s beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is a clear and present danger against Assange’s person, and that he has reason to fear being abducted to the United States and fear for his health, liberty, and even life. By reason of this, Defense argues, Assange has a good and valid reason to be careful to announce his whereabouts at all times, and that this had absolutely nothing to do with this case.

Jul 16 14:30 - Defense: “One can clearly see that when these charges were filed, including when the decision was made to re-open some dismissed charges, Assange was visiting Sweden. He’s an Australian citizen and well known; it comes to a surprise to no one that he does a lot of travel and works internationally. Therefore, it’s unreasonable to assume that Assange had no need whatsoever to leave the country to do ordinary work. Still, Assange deliberately chose to stay in Sweden and showed up to the first hearing on August 30 [2010]. He shows no flight tendencies whatsoever. After that point, Assange stayed in Sweden until September 27. There were a few contacts between Prosecution and Defense in this time frame, when Defense asked if there was anything preventing Assange from leaving the country. Therefore, Prosecution was well aware that Assange had an interest in international travel.”

Jul 16 14:27 - Defense: “Prosecution hasn’t taken any action that would indicate this is a matter of a serious nature. Even if there would be a public interest to theoretically move ahead with all charges ever filed, the nature of this case clearly shows that the ends can’t justify the means.”

Jul 16 14:25 - Defense: “As for how these allegations were originally filed, there are considerable irregularities. The intention of the original accusers were NOT to press charges but something completely different, and there is considerable doubt whether the alleged actions even constitute a criminal act.”

Jul 16 14:24 - Defense: “As for the flight risk: this may be acceptable as an argument in the general case. However, in this case specifically, there are several facts talking against a public interest of allowing any means imaginable to conduct this investigation, in particular the unacceptable time elapsed. First, the allegations are not one of the more serious crimes in the Swedish Law. We’re not talking about murder, genocide or terrorism. The Court must consider that the severity of the alleged crimes presented by the Prosecution is limited, and can’t justify any arbitrary use of force against a suspect.”

Jul 16 14:21 - Defense: “The third principle is the principle of expedience, saying that any accused has the right to a speedy trial. These three principles are pillars in a democratic state. Putting a suspect in detention during the entire investigation would be considered by many to be considerably more use of force than sentencing somebody to jail following a trial – and, importantly: detention is only allowed to be used as an exceptional tool. It is not allowed to be used to be used by Prosecution and Police as a general rule or to get less work.”

Jul 16 14:19 - Defense criticizes Prosecution that any unclarity must speak to the favor of the defendant, rather than in favor of use of more force.

Jul 16 14:18 - Defense criticizes Prosecution that they haven’t justified how a continued detention remains in the public interest (European Convention on Human Rights specifies that a restriction in freedom must be necessary, effective, and proportionate).

Jul 16 14:17 - Defense calls on European Convention on Human Rights point 5.3, the presumtion of innocence.

Jul 16 14:17 - Defense: “There are three principles here. The necessity and proportionality principles, being applicable on the detention themselves, but also on the effectuation of this detention. Defense argues that you can’t effecutate a detention by any means available [letting the ends justify the means] but must evaluate whether the means applied must be evaluated whether they are proportionate to the presumed gains.”

Jul 16 14:15 - Defense: “We claim this detention must be lifted. Is it reasonable to keep Assange detained given these circumstances? Prosecution brings up three issues, and in combination, Defense means they lead to unreasonable consequences. The first is the time passed. In Assange’s case, it’s the lack of progress in the case that has the real effect [and not an arbitrary day count in jail]. The second is the effects to Assange’s personal situation and the restrictions on his freedom, in real effect. The third is how the case has been handled by the Prosecution, and specificially, the Prosecution’s refusal to go to London to hear Assange.

Jul 16 14:12 - Defense opens.

Jul 16 14:12 - Prosecution compares to other cases which appear peripheral to the argumentation. Prosecution closes: “There are no reasons whatsoever to re-evaluate this detention. There is a clear and present flight risk and we don’t consider a continued detention disproportionate.”

Jul 16 14:11 - Prosecution: “We do not consider a continued detention disproportionate. Assange has not been formally detained more than ten days; he has chosen to restrict his own freedom over and above in Ecuador’s embassy in London, but we argue that the time detained should count as the ten days in British jail. His time in the embassy is not a restriction of freedom effected and under control of the State.”

Jul 16 14:09 - Prosecution: “We have tried the question of hearing Assange in London and dismissed the idea as not effective.”

Jul 16 14:08 - Prosecution: “We would not be able to conduct a secure and just investigation, were we to go to London to conduct the hearings.” Prosecution compares to a case where they did go abroad, which was a case concerning economic crime.

Jul 16 14:06 - Prosecution: “There are several reasons we haven’t made hearings in London. This kind of allegation don’t work well for leaving public defenders or prosecutors on foreign soil, and we can’t apply force for taking DNA samples and similar if we consider it necessary. Besides, we can’t hold a trial in London. We’ve re-evaluated this continuously.”

Jul 16 14:04 - Prosecution: “We have exhausted everything speaking in favor of the defendant. There’s nothing we’re withholding from his lawyers in that regard.”

Jul 16 14:02 - Prosecution appears trying to define political asylum as a “flight risk”.

Jul 16 14:02 - Prosecution: “We are arguing that Assange has deliberately refused to come to Sweden for this hearing … and have learned that Assange has no intention of coming to Sweden to such a hearing … which we consider to fill the definition of a flight risk.” Prosecution handwaves and tries to diminish a point of proportionality, which the defense will probably pounce on.

Jul 16 14:00 - Prosecution talks about the possibility of traveling to London to hear Julian Assange. “We didn’t know where he was until December. We also tried repeated attempts to contact Assange through his lawyer, Björn Hurtig. This led to prosecutor Marianne Ny detaining Assange in absentia on Sep 27 2010.” … “These statements that the Prosecution has failed trying to hear Assange are forcefully refuted.” … “Detaining in absentia appeared as the only way to proceed with the investigation.”

Jul 16 13:57 - Prosecution begins talking about “risk of flight”.

Jul 16 13:57 - “The negotiations are now public again.” We are let back into the room. Guards remind us that no recording of sound or video is permitted.

Jul 16 13:56 - It’s been over 30 minutes since the doors closed when the defense wanted to show something on-screen, after the first few minutes where the court just exchanged opening pleasantries. The effect of today’s proceedings remains uncertain: if the detention in absentia in Sweden is lifted, that’s one thing, but what’s keeping Julian Assange locked into a room in an Ecuadorian embassy is an Interpol Red Notice. In other words, the internation arrest warrant must be revoked, which is a separate step from lifting the Swedish detention. Will the Prosecution do that if they lose today’s proceedings? They would be supposed to.

They would be supposed to.

Jul 16 13:47 - Still waiting. More nothing.

Jul 16 13:39 - We’re still waiting outside of room 27. There are quite a few reporters here talking to members of the public, including from the large news agencies. They’re typing a lot on laptops, despite oxygen-starved standing room only.

Jul 16 13:30 - We’re still standing outside room 27 with no sign of what’s happening behind closed doors.

Jul 16 13:22 - We of the public are standing waiting outside room 27 in the Stockholm District Court.

Jul 16 13:20 - Network is painfully inadequate. (Testing.)

Jul 16 13:19 - Before the doors closed, prosecutor and defender presented their respective stances. No surprises there: Defense; “we call for the detention of Julian Assange to be lifted, effective immediately”. Prosecution: “We object to this motion and call for its dismissal.” After that, the defense wanted to “show something” on-screen, at which point the court closed its doors to the public. This is not unusual for sensitive parts of trials dealing with privacy-sensitive material.

Jul 16 13:14 - Parties greet each other. The court starts off by closing its doors and chasing everybody out, to resume public parts later.

Jul 16 13:10 - Call over the PA system: “Renewed-detention negotiations, Prosecutor v Assange. Parties and representatives are called to room 37″. Room 27 opens; we of the public pour in.

Jul 16 13:04 - It’s almost five past the hour, and the room has still not opened. Rumors in the audience here say that the press conference with the Police afterward won’t be open to the public and is by pre-announced presence only.

Jul 16 13:03 - Some people have asked me why I haven’t taken a clear stance on this issue. The explanation is simple: since I have first-hand observations of the events surrounding the allegations, if this should ever come to trial, I would be a defense witness (and I have left a deposition with the Police to that effect). Therefore, I have refrained from speculating on the case in the media, given that such speculation could burn my testimony, and I consider that to be more valuable than a random voice with opinions. When people have asked me about my opinions anyway, I have pointed to the fact that I’m slated to be a defense witness and asked them if they can draw any conclusions from that, refusing to elaborate further.

Jul 16 13:00 - The room (27) has not opened yet. Maybe 30 people of the public are gathered outside. I recognize many or most of them.

Jul 16 12:58 - Test

Jul 16 12:57 - Only people with media accreditation are being let into the room where the actual court proceedings are held (room 37 in the Stockholm District Court) – the public is only welcome to an audio feed of the proceedings, which is fed to a room on a different floor (room 27). This mirrors the mock trial of The Pirate Bay, which was done the same way, in this very court, actually.

Hacker re: VIDEO-Julian Assange-Prosecutors Go to London>Question Him Re Rapes

Julian Assange's Lawyers Say He Will Agree to be Interviewed in London by Swedish Prosecutors Over Rape Allegations

  • Swedish prosecutors offer to come to London to question Julian Assange
  • Wikileaks founder currently holed up at Ecuadorian embassy in London
  • Wanted in Sweden for questioning as part of a probe into rape allegations
  • 43-year-old has refused to return to Sweden to refute the charges
  • Australian's lawyer welcomes decision by the Swedish authorities
Daily Mail UK, 18 March 2015



The costly legal standoff over Julian Assange took a dramatic turn when Swedish prosecutors said they were prepared to question the WikiLeaks founder in Britain.

For almost three years Assange, pictured, has been claiming asylum in London’s Ecuadorian embassy to avoid extradition to Sweden over rape allegations.
The 43-year-old faces arrest if he steps outside, and taxpayers have spent more than £10million on police who monitor him 24 hours a day.





Swedish Prosecutors have offered to travel to London to question Wikileaks founder Julian Assange



Swedish officials until now refused to question him in London over the allegations of rape, sexual assault and illegal coercion.
But yesterday lead prosecutor Marianne Ny announced that they will now travel to Britain – because time is running out. Under Swedish law they only have until August to pursue the claims relating to sexual assault and illegal coercion.

Miss Ny said that an interview conducted at the embassy would be of lower ‘quality’, but added: ‘Now that time is of the essence, I have viewed it therefore necessary to accept such deficiencies.’

Her team will also seek a DNA swab.





Assange, who is currently holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy, is wanted for questioning in Sweden over sexual assault allegations



Today one of the Australian's lawyers welcomed the offer by Swedish prosecutors to travel to the UK and said it was likely their offer would be accepted.
'This is something we've demanded for over four years,' said Per Samuelson.
'Julian Assange wants to be interviewed so he can be exonerated. So of course we welcome this.'

However, Assange may stay in the embassy for another five years until the more serious allegation of rape also expires in Swedish law. By then the bill for Scotland Yard’s sentry duty would be around £30million.

Assange’s spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson has repeatedly said that the activist – who denies the accusations – has no intention of turning himself in. Yesterday, Mr Hrafnsson called the offer by Swedish prosecutors ‘a victory for Julian’, but insisted the delay had been ‘absolutely outrageous’.
He said: 'I assume this is because it is extremely likely that Julian will win a case in the Supreme Court in Sweden, determining that the arrest warrant be dropped.





Assange's lawyers welcome the move by the Swedish prosecutors to travel to London to quiz him






The surveillance operation outside the Ecuadorian Embassy has so far cost the UK taxpayers £10million



'The court has recently announced it will hear the case, and it is quite obvious it will rule in Julian's favour.'

Mr Hrafnsson said the Swedish prosecutor had 'done nothing' to move the case forward for years.

Assange has been fighting extradition to Sweden since it issued a warrant for his arrest in August 2010. Two years later he was granted political asylum by Ecuador.
He believes that if he goes to Sweden, he will be extradited to the US and questioned over classified state documents that were published by WikiLeaks.

Last month Stephen Greenhalgh, London deputy mayor for policing, said the cost of guarding the embassy was ‘eye-watering’.
Police have been station outside the embassy building in Knightsbridge round the clock since Assange arrived in June 2012.

He has been granted asylum by the government of Ecuador but cannot travel there because he will be arrested first.
In that time he has given a series of speeches from the balcony of the building and 'attended' conferences around the world by video message.


Assange Calls Prosecutors' Offer to Travel to London a 'Victory'





His Lawyer Responds

Update re: PhOtOs-UN Rules >Assange 'Arbitrarily Detained' In Ecuador Embassy

France Says 'Non' to Julian Assange's Asylum Bid Three Years After he Sought Refuge in Ecuador Embassy in London, Saying 'He is in no danger'

  • Assange wrote letter appealing to France as 'beacon of the repressed'
  • French President Francois Hollande said Assange's life not in danger
  • Wikileaks founder has spent three years in Ecuadorian Embassy, London
Daily Mail UK, 3 July 2015


WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been refused asylum in France as his life is not in 'immediate danger'.
Assange wrote a letter to Francois Hollande, appealing to France's history as a beacon for the repressed.


But his request was quickly declined by the French President's office, which also cited the European arrest warrant against Assange.





Failed bid: Julian Assange giving a thumbs up prior to delivering a statement on the balcony inside the Ecuador Embassy, where he has sought political asylum in London, pictured in August 2012, has been turned down by French officials


'France has received the letter from Mr. Assange. An in-depth review shows that in view of the legal and material elements of Mr Assange's situation, France cannot grant his request,' a statement by President Francois Hollande's office said.

'The situation of Mr. Assange does not present any immediate danger. He is also the target of a European arrest mandate,' it noted.

In Assange's open letter, he noted that WikiLeaks recently revealed that the U.S. National Security Agency spied on Hollande and his two predecessors, in the piece published in Le Monde.

The exchange came after prominent French voices, including soccer legend Eric Cantona and economist Thomas Piketty, appealed for France to grant Assange haven.

Assange marked three years last month since he sought asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy in central London.
He faces immediate arrest on a European arrest warrant issued by the Swedish authorities if he steps outside the building.

The bill for stopping him escape justice has now topped £11million with a team of up to three police officers at a time - nine a day in total - monitoring the property 24 hours a day after Government ministers insisted the law must be upheld.

Police say the £11.1million bill is made up of £6.5million in 'opportunity costs', that is paying officers who could be catching criminals.
A further £2.7million was spent on 'additional costs', such as overtime, and £1.9million was spent on 'indirect costs'.

Assange, 43, has been granted asylum by the government of Ecuador but cannot travel to the country because he will be arrested first.

The Australian wants to avoid extradition to Sweden where he is wanted for questioning over claims he sexually assaulted two women in Stockholm, something he denies.

The outspoken former computer hacker believes he will be forced to go to the US and be quizzed over information published by WikiLeaks.

Update re: PhOtOs-UN Rules >Assange 'Arbitrarily Detained' In Ecuador Embassy

Ecuador Agrees To Let Swedish Investigators Quiz Julian Assange Over Rape Charges
>>Inside Their London Embassy

  • Julian Assange still wanted for questioning over rape allegations
  • Assange has been at Ecuadorian embassy in London for three years
  • New deal would see Swedish prosecutors question Assange at embassy
Daily Mail UK, 14 December 2015


Sweden and Ecuador have reached a deal in which could see some long-awaited progress in the case of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.


Assange, 44, is still wanted for questioning over a rape allegation made by a Swedish woman five years ago, and has been holed up inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London since being granted political asylum in 2012.

The new deal could see Assange interviewed by Swedish authorities inside the embassy, possibly ending his three-year residency.





Final breakthrough: The possible deal is set to see Julian Assange being questioned by Swedish authorities while he remains inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London


Assange was initially arrested in the UK five years ago, after being wanted for questioning over two counts of sexual molestation and one count of unlawful coercion, alleged to have been committed against two women during a visit to Sweden in August 2010.

In August this year, Swedish prosecutors announced they were dropping investigations into two allegations as the statute of limitations had run out.

This leaves one allegation of rape against one of the women, which will expire in 2020 under Swedish law, which Assange continues to deny.

Assange sought and was granted political by the Ecuador government in 2012 after losing several attempts to avoid extradition to Sweden, something which he still fears would see him transported to the U.S. to be quizzed over the activities of WikiLeaks.

Ecuador said the agreement between Quito and Stockholm will ease 'judicial procedures such as the questioning of Mr Assange'.





Expensive guest: The 24-hour police surveillance of the embassy, which was in place until October this year, cost Scotland Yard more than £12.5million


A representative added: 'The agreement, without any doubt, is a tool that strengthens bilateral relations and facilitates, for example, the execution of such legal actions as the questioning of Mr Assange, isolated in the Ecuadorian embassy in London.'

According to Julian Assange's Swedish legal representative, Sweden still needs to formally approve the deal, which is due to be discussed on Thursday, the Guardian reports.

Britain, which has accused Ecuador of preventing the course of justice by allowing Assange to remain in its embassy in the upmarket central London area of Knightsbridge, welcomed the agreement.

'It is for the Swedish Prosecutor to decide how they now proceed with a legal case,' a spokeswoman for the British Foreign Office said.

It is unlikely Mr Assange will be questioned until the new year, but his friends said it was a positive sign, pointing out he has been pressing to be interviewed for years.

A possible end to Assange's residency at the embassy in London would be welcome news to Scotland Yard, who recently ended their 24-hour guard outside the Knightsbridge address.

Scotland Yard provided round-the-clock armed officers in order to arrest Assange should he leave the Ecuadorian embassy until October this year
The decision to end the surveillance came after repeated attacks on the cost of the operation, which has cost the UK taxpayer £12.6million so far

Baltasar Garzon, co-ordinator of Mr Assange's international legal defence team, said:

'We are glad that Ecuador and Sweden have reached an agreement for judicial co-operation. The most important thing now is that it must provide the appropriate legal guarantees.'

Update re: PhOtOs-UN Rules >Assange 'Arbitrarily Detained' In Ecuador Embassy

UN Panel Rules in Favour of Wikileaks Founder Assange's Complaint of Arbitrary Detention- BBC

LONDON, 4 Feb (Reuters) -

A United Nations panel has ruled that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has been "arbitrarily detained", the BBC reported on Thursday.

No comment was immediately available from the United Nations in Geneva, where the U.N. Working Group on Arbitrary Detention has been considering a request by Assange for a ruling.

Assange, 44, is wanted in Sweden for questioning over allegations of rape in 2010, which he denies. He took refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy in London in June 2012 to avoid extradition.


Sweden's Response;

Swedish Foreign Ministry Confirms U.N. Report Says Assange Arbitrarily Detained

STOCKHOLM, Feb 4 (Reuters) - Sweden's Foreign Ministry said on Thursday that a United Nations panel had ruled that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange had been "arbitrarily detained".

"Their working group has made the judgment that Assange has been arbitrarily detained in contravention of international commitments," a spokeswoman for the Foreign Ministry said.

The comment confirms a report by the BBC earlier on Thursday.

Assange, 44, took refuge in Ecuador's embassy in London in June 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden. Swedish prosecutors want to question him over allegations, which he denies, that he committed rape in 2010.

Update re: Is Julian Assange Dead-Poisoned by PORN Star Pamela Anderson?>Wikileaks Update

Assange Should be Released and Compensated, U.N. Panel Says

GENEVA, Feb 5 (Reuters) -


A U.N. panel of independent experts said on Friday that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange was being detained arbitrarily in the Ecuadorian embassy in London and should be released and compensated.

"The Working Group on Arbitrary Detention considers that the various forms of deprivation of liberty to which Julian Assange has been subjected constitute a form of arbitrary detention," the group's head, Seong-Phil Hong, said in a statement.

"The Working Group maintains that the arbitrary detention of Mr Assange should be brought to an end, that his physical integrity and freedom of movement be respected, and that he should be entitled to an enforceable right to compensation."


The Latest: Sweden says UN Statement Has No Legal Effect

GENEVA (AP) — The Latest on the U.N. panel's determination that Julian Assange has been arbitrarily detained (all times local):


10:15 a.m.

Britain's Foreign Office has rejected the United Nations panel's finding that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is a victim of arbitrary detention.

Officials said in a statement Friday morning that Britain will formally contest the working group's opinion issued earlier in Geneva.

The statement says Britain is "deeply frustrated" by the Assange situation.
"The opinion of the U.N. working group ignores the facts and the well-recognized protections of the British legal system," the statement says. "He is, in fact, voluntarily avoiding lawful arrest by choosing to remain in the Ecuadorean embassy."

The statement points out that an allegation of rape is still outstanding and that a European Arrest Warrant is in place.
It says Britain has a legal obligation to extradite Assange to Sweden for questioning.
___

9:35 a.m.

The Swedish Prosecution Authority says the call from the U.N. working group for Julian Assange to be released and compensated "has no formal impact on the ongoing investigation, according to Swedish law."

Spokeswoman Karin Rosander said the prosecutor responsible for the case is traveling and has not yet been able to comment on the case.

Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadorean Embassy since 2012 to avoid arrest and extradition to Sweden, from where he fears he would be sent to the United States.
___

9:25 a.m.

A U.N. human rights panel says WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been "arbitrarily detained" by Britain and Sweden since December 2010.

The U.N. Working Group on Arbitrary Detention said his detention should end and he should be entitled to compensation.

Swedish prosecutors want to question Assange over allegations of rape stemming from a working visit he made to the country in 2010 when WikiLeaks was attracting international attention for its secret-spilling ways.

Assange has consistently denied the allegations but declined to return to Sweden to meet with prosecutors and eventually sought refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy in London, where he has lived since June 2012.

Update re: Is Julian Assange Dead-Poisoned by PORN Star Pamela Anderson?>Wikileaks Update

Julian Assange's Internet Link to The World is Mysteriously Shut Down - Hours After a Visit by Pamela Anderson Sparked Crazy Rumours She 'Poisoned Him With a Vegan Sandwich'

  • Pamela Anderson visited Ecuadorian embassy in London on Saturday
  • Said Assange joked she had 'tortured' him by bringing only vegan food
  • On Sunday morning WikiLeaks posted three mysterious tweets
  • Many on Twitter believed the tweets, which referenced John Kerry, Ecuador and the UK Foreign Office, were triggered by Assange's death
  • Now he claims that state agents have 'severed' his embassy internet link
Daily Mail UK, 17 October 2016



Julian Assange says his internet link was 'severed' by state agents hours after claims he was poisoned by a Pret vegan sandwich brought to him by Pamela Anderson.


The WikiLeaks founder's only connection to the outside world from his Ecuadorian embassy hideout in London was cut today, with supporters saying America was behind the cyber attack.

It came as bizarre rumours spread that Mr Assange may have died over the weekend after a visit from Pamela Anderson, 49.

On Saturday the former Baywatch & Porn star walked into the Ecuadorian embassy in London clutching bags from Pret A Manger, the popular UK sandwich shop.

She said afterwards she was worried for his health and when a series of mysterious tweets were sent by WikiLeaks on Sunday his fans feared that he had perished after eating her food.


Assange, 45, who has been hiding in the London embassy since 2012 to avoid sex crime allegations in Sweden, is alive and well according to the embassy and now appears to be the victim of a cyber attack.





Revealed: Julian Assange, pictured on October 4, is alive but WikiLeaks claim his internet connection was cut by 'state' agents this morning





Visit: Rumours started that Julian Assange died after eating a poisoned vegan Pret a Manger meal that was brought to his room by Pamela Anderson on Saturday (pictured)





Star: She later said she brought him a 'nice vegan lunch' but said she had concerns for his health







But Wikileaks revealed this morning that Assange's internet link had been 'intentionally severed by a state party'



At 6.30am this morning WikiLeaks tweeted: 'Julian Assange's internet link has been intentionally severed by a state party', with conspiracy theorists claiming that it is linked to John Kerry's visit to London to meet Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.


WikiLeaks say they 'have activated the appropriate contingency plans' as they try to restore his internet link.

It all began when Anderson paid Assange a visit on Saturday at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where he has been hiding out for more than four years to avoid a rape investigation in his native Sweden.
In her hands were two bags from Pret, a popular sandwich shop chain based in the UK.
Anderson, an advocate for animals' rights, later said that she brought Assange 'a nice vegan lunch'.

'He said I tortured him with bringing him vegan food,' she then joked.

The former Playboy model said the WikiLeaks founder was doing 'really well' but expressed concern for him and his family.
The Australian has been living in the embassy for over four years and has been granted political asylum by Ecuador.
He is due to be questioned over a sex allegation in Sweden - which he denies. Mr Assange believes that if he goes to Sweden he will be extradited to the United States for questioning over the activities of WikiLeaks.

The ex-Baywatch star told the Press Association: 'I really believe in him and think he's a good person, and I'm concerned about his health, his family, and I just hope that by some miracle he's set free.'





Assange has been hiding out at the Ecuadorian Embassy (pictured here on a balcony in the embassy in February) for four years to avoid a rape investigation in his native Sweden














Twitter was alight with the conspiracy theory on Sunday night after these three tweets that appeared to be coded were posted on the WikiLeaks account and branded a 'dead man's switch'




The three tweets were headlined

'pre-commitment 1: John Kerry',

'pre-commitment 2: Ecuador' and

'pre-commitment 3: UK FCO',


The latter appearing to refer to the United Kingdom's Foreign & Commonwealth Office.


Each tweet was then followed by a series of numbers and letters, causing many on the social media site to believe they were a 'dead man's switch' meant to be activated if Assange is killed.


But Twitter users weren't only speculating on whether Assange was alive or dead - they believed they knew who his alleged killer was as well: A certain Baywatch blonde bombshell.

But many on Twitter took Anderson's words seriously - and they weren't laughing.


'Don't trust unconfirmed reports of Assange being alive.' wrote one user.
'ARREST PAMELA ANDERSON NOW', they added.

'GET ASSANGE OUT OF THERE AND INTO HIDING,' a user named Rosa Marzullo frantically tweeted to citizen journalist James Albury.
'How do we know that Pamela Anderson isn't working 4 (sic) someone to set him up?'

Roosh V, the controversial blogger who has called for the legalization of rape, tweeted out an article about Anderson bringing Assange lunch.
'If he's dead, I'd have that food tested,' he added.



But fashion designer Vivienne Westwood revealed on Sunday that Anderson had met with Assange to discuss a new trust she wants to set up.

'I was supposed to take Pamela Anderson to see Julian in the embassy but she got the date wrong, so she went on her own the day after me,' Westwood told the Mail On Sunday.

'She told me afterwards that they got on very well. Julian was just brilliant.'
'Pamela's trying to help people with her new trust and he gave her some ideas on how to do that.'

HOW SUN-STARVED ASSANGE'S HEALTH HAS SUFFERED IN EMBASSY


The hacker has endured a self-imposed imprisonment in a single room after being given diplomatic asylum at the Ecuadorian embassy in London’s Knightsbridge.

The embassy — strewn with red, yellow and blue Ecuadorian flags — takes up a single floor of an imposing block behind Harrods.

Initially, Assange slept on an inflatable mattress donated by embassy staff, who are described as having become ‘like family’ to him.

But when it became clear his stay was not going to be temporary, a small room was transformed into his living quarters and a bed installed.

He is thought to have stood in direct sunlight for only about 20 minutes during his incarceration, when he emerged on the balcony to address his supporters in August 2012.

He has a specially adapted lamp to mimic sunlight in his room — which measures just 15ft by 13ft.

Near a Victorian fireplace he has a treadmill donated by the Left-wing film-maker Ken Loach and in his first year at the embassy he notched up 744 miles on the running machine.

Sources have said his health has suffered ever since he walked in four years ago, and there is a suspicion Assange, still unapologetic about his role in leaking government secrets, had pushed to leave because of illness.

Default Wikileaks Update on Julian Assange’s Internet Outage


Wikileaks Update on Julian Assange’s Internet Outage: Big Surprise, Looks Like It Was the Obama Administration





It seems that the Obama administration’s efforts to save the presidential candidacy of Hillary Clinton is finally starting to yield tangible results as WikiLeaks just provided the following update that Julian Assange was cut off from using the Internet at the Ecuadorian embassy in London effective Saturday evening.
Clearly the lack of internet for Assange hasn’t slowed the release of Hillary’s emails as Part 9 of the Podesta emails were released yesterday and Part 10 was just released a few hours ago. Of course, this comes just a few days after the Obama administration announced overt plans to escalate a cyber war with Russia over allegations they were behind the hacking of Hillary’s private email server.

Certainly, one has to wonder what this means for the future of Assange as clearly the Obama administration has applied sufficient pressure on the Ecuadorian government such that they have started to cave on their support of him. Perhaps we should be checking flight logs for mysterious planes landing in Quito with billions of Swiss Francs on board.

Or perhaps, the Ecuadorian goverment prefers to “swap gold” with Hillary’s other political ally, Goldman Sachs, as Bloomberg noted they did back in 2014. Just another of the many ways that Hillary’s wall street relationships have paid dividends…quid pro quo, Goldman.
Ecuador, one of only eight countries to adopt the U.S. dollar as its official currency, swapped gold with Goldman Sachs Group Inc. for liquid assets in a sign the nation is short on cash, according to Loomis Sayles & Co.
“It does raise a red flag,” Bianca Taylor, a sovereign analyst who helps oversee $210 billion at Loomis Sayles, said yesterday in a phone interview from Boston. “Whenever a country needs to sell or monetize its gold reserves, it’s definitely a signal that the sovereign is strapped for cash.”
President Rafael Correa is stepping up his search for financing at home and abroad after borrowing more than $11 billion from China since defaulting on $3.2 billion of foreign debt five years ago. Ecuador’s use of the dollar means it can’t finance deficits by printing money like other countries. Correa, a self-described revolutionary socialist, is now planning to raise about $700 million in an overseas bond sale this year and agreed to allow the International Monetary Fund to perform an economic review for the first time since 2008.
Ecuador’s central bank, stripped of its autonomy in a constitutional referendum a year after Correa took power in 2007, says it “invested” the gold with Goldman Sachs in return for assets that can be liquidated within seven days. The country will get the same quantity of gold back three years from now and expects to earn a profit of $16 million to $20 million from the deal, it said.


Below is what we recently wrote regarding the Obama administration’s stepped up efforts targeting Russia and Assange.

* * *

In what is looking more and more like a season finale of the HBO series “House of Cards” with each passing day, the Obama administration is now literally threatening a cyber war with Russia over allegations it was behind the hacking of Clinton’s emails. According to an exclusive NBC report, the Obama administration “is contemplating an unprecedented cyber covert action” (though it’s unclear how exactly it’s covert if Biden is announcing it to the world via an interview with Chuck Todd) against Russia, in “retaliation for alleged” interference in the American presidential election, and has asked the CIA to draft plans for a “wide-ranging “clandestine” cyber operation designed to harass and “embarrass” the Kremlin leadership.”

So now the Obama administration is overtly leveraging the full power of the United States to intimidate foreign governments, and most likely Julian Assange, in order to maintain control of the Executive Branch of the government. Does anyone within the mainstream media see any problems with this? Certainly Chuck Todd and NBC do not. And notice that even the NBC article refers to “alleged” Russian interference because not a shred of evidence has been presented to prove that senior Russian officials were actually behind the hacking of Hillary’s emails…but who needs facts when you have a complicit media eager to advance whatever propaganda is necessary to maintain power?
The Obama administration is contemplating an unprecedented cyber covert action against Russia in retaliation for alleged Russian interference in the American presidential election, U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News.
Current and former officials with direct knowledge of the situation say the CIA has been asked to deliver options to the White House for a wide-ranging “clandestine” cyber operation designed to harass and “embarrass” the Kremlin leadership.
The sources did not elaborate on the exact measures the CIA was considering, but said the agency had already begun opening cyber doors, selecting targets and making other preparations for an operation. Former intelligence officers told NBC News that the agency had gathered reams of documents that could expose unsavory tactics by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Vice President Joe Biden told “Meet the Press” moderator Chuck Todd on Friday that “we’re sending a message” to Putin and that “it will be at the time of our choosing, and under the circumstances that will have the greatest impact.”
When asked if the American public will know a message was sent, the vice president replied, “Hope not.”


Former CIA officers interviewed by NBC said that there is a long history of the White House plotting potential cyber attacks against Russia. That said, none of them were ultimately carried out because “none of the options were particularly good, nor did we think that any of them would be particularly effective.”
Two former CIA officers who worked on Russia told NBC News that there is a long history of the White House asking the CIA to come up with options for covert action against Russia, including cyber options — only to abandon the idea.
A second former officer, who helped run intelligence operations against Russia, said he was asked several times in recent years to work on covert action plans, but “none of the options were particularly good, nor did we think that any of them would be particularly effective,” he said.
Others warned that the White House has always caved on plans to follow through with cyber attacks because anything the U.S. can do against Russia, they can also do in response. As one of the former CIA officers said, “if you are looking to mess with their networks, we can do that, but then the issue becomes, they can do worse things to us in other places.”
“We’ve always hesitated to use a lot of stuff we’ve had, but that’s a political decision,” one former officer said. “If someone has decided, `We’ve had enough of the Russians,’ there is a lot we can do. Step one is to remind them that two can play at this game and we have a lot of stuff. Step two, if you are looking to mess with their networks, we can do that, but then the issue becomes, they can do worse things to us in other places.”
Putin is almost beyond embarrassing, he said, and anything the U.S. can do against, for example, Russian bank accounts, the Russian can do in response.
“Do you want to have Barack Obama bouncing checks?” he asked.
Former CIA deputy director Michael Morell expressed skepticism that the U.S. would go so far as to attack Russian networks.
“Physical attacks on networks is not something the U.S. wants to do because we don’t want to set a precedent for other countries to do it as well, including against us,” he said. “My own view is that our response shouldn’t be covert — it should overt, for everybody to see.”
Here is a brief clip of Biden discussing the “covert” planning with NBC’s Chuck Todd.





If the Obama administration is willing to go to such great lengths, literally escalating tensions with another superpower, to protect their candidate from whatever it is that she’s hiding then we suspect whatever WikiLeaks has yet to release could be really good.

Assange Lashes Out at US: ‘Rigged Primary, Rigged Media, Rigged Candidate’





ZeroHedge.com

After months of exposing damaging internal information from both the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign, much of which actually points to criminal behavior but seemingly has no impact on the polls, Julian Assange has concluded that “There is no US election. There is power consolidation. Rigged primary,
rigged media and rigged ‘pied piper’ candidate drive consolidation.“

Sadly, it is difficult to disagree with the assessment. That an establishment democratic candidate could endure an extended FBI investigation, in which multiple federal laws were clearly and intentionally broken, and clear evidence of corruption and collusion between the FBI and State Department is mind boggling. Throw in evidence from WikiLeaks clearly linking the DNC to criminal efforts to incite violence at rallies, numerous examples of pay-to-play activities at the Clinton Foundation, blatant media collusion, etc, etc, and it
actually becomes quite frightening.

And, while no amount of corruption or scandal seems to sway an American electorate that is intent upon driving the bus off the cliff, Assange has promised a ”surprise” for Tim Kaine and the “persecuted christian woman”, Donna Brazile.

And while we certainly look forward to one more “October Surprise,” we’re sure it’s just one more damning piece of information that will be promptly ignored by the complicit “mainstream media”, which as Wikileaks itself exposed is nothing but a PR machine for the administration, and an oblivious American electorate.

Update Re: Is Julian Assange Dead-Poisoned by PORN Star Pamela Anderson?>Wikileaks Update

Brand New One-on-One Interview With Assange Released Today – 11/5/16 (Video)





In a stunning new one-on-one interview released today between Julian Assange and John Pilger, anyone who has had a difficult time keeping up with what’s in the various 40,000 emails released so far by Wikileaks, gets to listen to Julian Assange set the record straight on a number of issues that have been clouded by Hillary, and as one might expect, even in the face of documented evidence, Hillary is still lying…

At one point early in the interview, Assange says what many of us have probably thought at some point or another either during this campaign, or in years leading up to this one. He says, “I actually feel quite sorry for Hillary Clinton as a person because I see someone who is eaten alive by their ambitions, tormented literally to the point where they become sick; they faint as a result of [the reaction] to their ambitions.”

As utterly pathetic as that sounds, it sounds equally as dangerous. When asked about the war in Libya, and emails related to it, Assange reveals that there was no particular beef the U.S. had with Gaddafi, but rather Hillary perceived the removal of Gaddafi, and the overthrow of the Libyan state, as something that she would use in her run-up to the general election for President. In other words, human life means so little to her, she’d kill tens of thousands (40,000 to be precise), just to have a good talking point for her presidential campaign. She is a disgusting human being by any measurable standard, and I use the term human being loosely.

In a post earlier today titled, Constitutional Crisis Ready to Erupt; Why Hillary Will Never Face Justice, I detailed the exact constitutional reasons why Hillary will NEVER face justice for ANY of her crimes unless Trump wins by such a landslide, and knowing there is nothing that can be contested, out of spite Obama refuses to pardon her on his way out of office (assuming he leaves at all).

As I explained in the article linked above, President Ford pardoned Nixon before any formal charges were brought, so Obama could easily free Clinton of any future burdens if he so chooses, should she lose. If she wins, I explain in detail how there is no way she will ever be held accountable, as un-American as that sounds.

Once a person understands the intricacies of what needs to happen for Clinton to get away with her crimes completely free, or what might leave her liable for her actions, only then can you see how truly dangerous she is. It’s almost like she’s an animal backed into a corner and fighting for survival. The lives of 40,000 dead Libyans did not phase her, and neither has 475,000 dead Syrians as a result of her policies. Somehow, I don’t think she’d mourn the life of anyone who stood in her way at this point. God help us all.

As for the interview with Assange, It is WELL worth listening to. I got clarification on a number of issues the mainstream media and Team Hillary had managed to make unclear, but Assange brought his A-Game to the interview, and answers all questions asked without hesitation.

Adding further insult to injury, literally just moments ago Anonymous release a video tying Clinton to terrorism even further than previous reports already have. That video can be found at the end of the interview transcript.

Update re: Julian Assange Has Been Charged, Under Seal, in US

Revealed: Russia’s Secret Plan to Help Julian Assange Escape From UK

Tentative plot to whisk fugitive from London embassy on Christmas Eve was considered too risky


The Guardian UK, 21 Sep 2018.


Russian diplomats held secret talks in London last year with people close to Julian Assange to assess whether they could help him flee the UK, the Guardian has learned.






Julian Assange has been living in the Ecuadorian embassy since 2012 (Dominic Lipinski/PA)



A tentative plan was devised that would have seen the WikiLeaks founder smuggled out of Ecuador’s London embassy in a diplomatic vehicle and transported to another country.

One ultimate destination, multiple sources have said, was Russia, where Assange would not be at risk of extradition to the US. The plan was abandoned after it was deemed too risky.

The operation to extract Assange was provisionally scheduled for Christmas Eve in 2017, one source claimed, and was linked to an unsuccessful attempt by Ecuador to give Assange formal diplomatic status.

The involvement of Russian officials in hatching what was described as a “basic” plan raises new questions about Assange’s ties to the Kremlin. The WikiLeaks editor is a key figure in the ongoing US criminal investigation into Russia’s attempts to sway the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.

Robert Mueller, the special counsel conducting the investigation, filed criminal charges in July against a dozen Russian GRU military intelligence officers who allegedly hacked Democratic party servers during the presidential campaign. The indictment claims the hackers sent emails that embarrassed Hillary Clinton to WikiLeaks. The circumstances of the handover are still under investigation.

According to Mueller, WikiLeaks published “over 50,000 documents” stolen by Russian spies. The first tranche arrived on 14 July 2016 as an encrypted attachment.

Assange has denied receiving the stolen emails from Russia.


Details of the Assange escape plan are sketchy. Two sources familiar with the inner workings of the Ecuadorian embassy said that Fidel Narváez, a close confidant of Assange who until recently served as Ecuador’s London consul, served as a point of contact with Moscow.

In an interview with the Guardian, Narváez denied having been involved in discussions with Russia about extracting Assange from the embassy.

Narváez said he visited Russia’s embassy in Kensington twice this year as part of a group of “20-30 more diplomats from different countries”. These were “open-public meetings”, he said, that took place during the “UK-Russian crisis” – a reference to the aftermath of the novichok poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal in March.


Sources said the escape plot involved giving Assange diplomatic documents so that Ecuador would be able to claim he enjoyed diplomatic immunity. As part of the operation, Assange was to be collected from the embassy in a diplomatic vehicle.

Four separate sources said the Kremlin was willing to offer support for the plan – including the possibility of allowing Assange to travel to Russia and live there. One of them said that an unidentified Russian businessman served as an intermediary in these discussions.

The possibility that Assange could travel to Ecuador by boat was also considered.


Narváez previously played a role in trying to secure Edward Snowden’s safe passage following his leak of secret NSA material in 2013. Narváez gave the former NSA contractor a so-called safe-conduct pass when he left Hong Kong for Moscow, where Snowden eventually found asylum.


At the time, the then president of Ecuador, Rafael Correa, said Narváez had issued the pass without the government’s knowledge. The Spanish-language broadcaster Univision reported that Narváez travelled to Moscow the same day that he issued the safe passage document to Snowden; other sources have corroborated this report.


Assange’s Christmas Eve escape was aborted with just days to go, one source claimed. Rommy Vallejo, the head of Ecuador’s intelligence agency, allegedly travelled to the UK on or around 15 December 2017 to oversee the operation and left London when it was called off.

In February Vallejo quit his job and is believed to be in Nicaragua. He is under investigation for the alleged kidnapping in 2012 of a political rival to Correa.



Ecuador’s new president, Lenín Moreno, has said he wants Assange to quit the embassy. In March the government in Quito cut off his internet access and restricted his visitors.


Melinda Taylor, a lawyer specialising in human rights and international criminal law who represents Assange, has denounced his confinement in the embassy.

“I think it is shocking that Assange has been detained arbitrarily for approximately eight years for publishing evidence of war crimes and human rights violations. The UK could end this situation today, by providing assurances that Assange will not be extradited to the United States.”


Sources offered conflicting accounts of who cancelled the Assange operation, but all agreed it was deemed to be too risky. The stumbling block was the UK’s refusal to grant Assange diplomatic protection.

Under UK law, diplomats are immune from criminal prosecution if their diplomatic credentials have been accepted by the British government, and if the Foreign Office has been alerted to the diplomat’s status.


This is not the first time Assange has apparently considered seeking refuge in Russia. The Associated Press reported this week that the WikiLeaks founder tried to obtain a Russian visa. He signed a letter in November 2010 granting power of attorney to “my friend” Israel Shamir – a controversial supporter who passed leaked US state department cables from Assange to journalists in Moscow. Shamir would deliver Assange’s passport to the Russian consulate, and collect it afterwards, Assange wrote.


At the time Assange was facing allegations of rape and sexual assault made by two women in Sweden. In 2012 he sought asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy after he lost a battle against extradition in the supreme court. Assange denies the women’s claims. Swedish authorities eventually dropped both cases after the statute of limitations expired. Assange faces arrest for breaching his bail conditions.


During the US presidential campaign, Donald Trump praised WikiLeaks for releasing the emails that damaged Clinton. Confidential visitor logs obtained by the Guardian reveal that Assange received several Russian nationals during the summer of 2016, including senior figures from RT, the Kremlin’s international propaganda channel.

In March 2017 WikiLeaks published confidential CIA documents. Assange believes a grand jury indicted him over this and other leaks, with the charges filed under seal. Were he to leave the embassy the US would seek his extradition, his lawyers say.

The Ecuadorian government declined to comment. The Russian embassy in London tweeted on Friday that the Guardian story was “another example of disinformation and fake news from the British media”.

Update re: Julian Assange Has Been Charged, Under Seal, in US

Assange Must Follow New Ecuador Embassy Rules, Says Judge

WikiLeaks founder claims regulations are bid to coerce him into ending asylum


The Guardian UK, 30 Oct 2018.


A judge in Ecuador has ruled against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, rejecting his request to loosen new requirements that he says are meant to push him into leaving his asylum in the country’s embassy in London.

The judge, Karina Martínez, found that stricter rules recently imposed by the South American nation’s embassy – such as requiring Assange to pay for his internet and clean up after his cat – do not violate his asylum rights because authorities have the right to decide what is and isn’t allowed inside the building.



Ecuadorian officials praised the ruling in the latest row between the Australian hacker and the government that has given him refuge for six years. Relations between Assange and Ecuador have grown increasingly prickly as the years have dragged on, with no resolution in sight.

Assange’s lawyer vowed to appeal against the decision. “The Ecuadorian state has an international responsibility to protect Mr Assange,” attorney Carlos Poveda said.

Assange argued that the new measures, which make it more difficult for him to receive visitors and requiring him to pay for services such as laundry and medical bills, are meant to coerce him into ending his asylum.


Ecuador’s government contended that the requirements were aimed at peaceful cohabitation in tight quarters in the small embassy,
where Assange takes up more than a third of the space. Officials have complained that his soccer playing and skateboarding have damaged the building.


“It’s clear this protocol was issued with strict respect for international law,” Jose Valencia, Ecuador’s foreign minister, said after the ruling.

Ecuador granted Assange asylum in the embassy in 2012 as he tried to avoid extradition to Sweden. Sweden’s top prosecutor later dropped a long-running inquiry into a rape allegation against him, saying there was no way to detain or charge him because of his protected status in the embassy.

Nonetheless, Assange remains wanted in Britain for jumping bail, and he also fears a possible extradition to the US based on his leaking of classified state department documents.

Assange initially enjoyed a cosy relationship with the then Ecuadorian president Rafael Correa, but relations with his host nation have steadily deteriorated.

The current president, Lenín Moreno, has warned him not to meddle in matters that could jeopardise Ecuador’s foreign relations.

Update re: Julian Assange Has Been Charged, Under Seal, in US

Julian Assange: Wikileaks Founder has Been Charged in US, Prosecutors Accidentally Reveal

The Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has been charged under seal with unspecified offences in the US, prosecutors have accidentally revealed in an unintentional court filing.

Independent UK, 24 Nov 2018.


Federal prosecutors had hoped to keep the indictment prepared against Mr Assange a secret “due to the sophistication of the defendant, and the publicity surrounding the case”, and so that Mr Assange would “no longer evade or avoid arrest and extradition in this matter”.


Wikileaks said on social media that the US Justice Department had “accidentally revealed existence of sealed charges (or draft of them) against [Mr Assange] in apparent cut-and-paste error”.

The document that reveals the charges, which prosecutors say was filed by mistake, asks a judge to seal documents in a criminal case unrelated to Mr Assange, and carries markings indicating it was originally filed in a US District Court in Alexandria, Virginia in August.

A source familiar with the matter told Reuters news agency the document was initially sealed but unsealed this week for reasons that are unclear at the moment.

And Joshua Stueve, a spokesman for the prosecutors’ office which filed the document that was unsealed, told Reuters: ”The court filing was made in error. That was not the intended name for this filing.”

According to the document, any procedure “short of sealing, will not adequately protect the needs of law enforcement at this time because, due to the sophistication of the defendant, and the publicity surrounding the case, no other procedure is likely to keep confidential the fact that Assange has been charged”.

It adds: “The complaint, supporting affidavit, and arrest warrant, as well as this motion and the proposed order, would need to remain sealed until Assange is arrested in connection with the charges in the criminal complaint and can therefore no longer evade or avoid arrest and extradition in this matter.”

The Washington Post reported that the document had been penned by the assistant US attorney Kellen S Dwyer.


US officials have previously acknowledged that federal prosecutors based in Alexandria have been conducting a lengthy criminal investigation into Wikileaks and its founder.

Mr Dwyer had also been assigned to the WikiLeaks case, according to The Washington Post. US media quoted sources familiar with the matter saying that what Mr Dwyer was disclosing was true, but unintentional.

Representatives of the Trump administration, including secretary of state Mike Pompeo, have publicly called for Mr Assange and Wikileaks to be aggressively prosecuted over the 2010 release of classified diplomatic cables.


Prosecutors are reported to have reopened their investigation into whether charges should be brought for the 2010 leak since Donald Trump came to power.

And separately, special counsel Robert Mueller has also looked into WikiLeaks’ publication of emails from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s then-campaign chairman, John Podesta, ahead of the 2016 election.


Officials have previously claimed the emails were hacked by Russian spies and transferred to Wikileaks.

Mr Assange entered the Ecuadorian embassy in London six years ago, to avoid extradition to Sweden to be questioned in a sexual molestation case.

Sweden has since dropped its request to extradite Mr Assange, but he still faces arrest by the Metropolitan Police if he leaves the embassy on a charge of skipping bail.


Mr Assange was initially treated as a welcome guest in the embassy, but his relations with Ecuadorian officials have become strained over time and he has often complained of his living conditions.

He and his supporters have periodically said US authorities had filed secret criminal charges against him, citing them as one of the reasons he must stay in the embassy – an assertion that US officials have pushed back against until recently.

Update re: Julian Assange Arrested & Dragged From London Embassy

Julian Assange Challenges Trump

Julian Assange is Trying to Force The Trump Administration to Open Up a "Secret" Court File and Reveal if He is Facing Charges in the U.S.

The Guardian UK/CBC 23 JAN 2019

WikiLeaks Founder’s Lawyers File Urgent Application in Attempt to Prevent Extradition to US...


Julian Assange, the fugitive WikiLeaks founder whose diplomatic sanctuary in the Ecuadorian embassy appears increasingly precarious, is launching a legal challenge against the Trump administration.

Lawyers for the Australian activist have filed an urgent application to the Washington-based Inter-American Commission of Human Rights (IACHR) aimed at forcing the hand of US prosecutors, requiring them to “unseal” any secret charges against him.

The legal move is an attempt to prevent Assange’s extradition to the US at a time that a new Ecuadorian government has been making his stay in the central London apartment increasingly inhospitable.

He has been staying in the Knightsbridge flat, which houses the embassy, since 2012 when he fled extradition proceedings at the UK’s supreme court. Swedish prosecutors have since dropped their request to extradite him to Stockholm over a rape investigation.

If he were to walk out on to the street, Assange is likely to face contempt of court charges for fleeing British justice. His chief fear, however, is that once arrested, the US authorities would begin fresh extradition proceedings against him alleging security offences.

It is believed American prosecutors have been investigating Assange since at least 2011, when a grand jury hearing was opened into the whistleblowing website’s publication of hundreds of thousands of US diplomatic cables, in conjunction with a number of international newspapers including the Guardian.

The IACHR monitors human rights in the Americas and hears appeals on individual cases. The Trump administration, however, has boycotted its recent hearings.


The 1,172-page submission by Assange’s lawyers calls on the US to unseal any secret charges against him and urges Ecuador to cease its “espionage activities” against him.


Baltasar Garzón, the prominent Spanish judge who has pursued dictators, terrorists and drug barons, is the international coordinator of Assange’s legal team.
He has said the case involves “the right to access and impart information freely” that has been put in “jeopardy”.


The Trump administration is refusing to reveal details of charges against Assange despite the fact that sources in the US Department of Justice have confirmed to the media that they exist under seal.


“The revelation that the US has initiated a prosecution against Mr Assange has shocked the international community”, the legal submission to the IACHR states.

The US government “is required to provide information as to the criminal charges that are imputed to Mr Assange in full”.

The application alleges that US prosecutors have begun approaching people in the US, Germany and Iceland and pressed them to testify against Assange in return for immunity from prosecution.


Those approached, it is said, include people associated with WikiLeaks’ joint publications with other media about US diplomacy, Guantánamo Bay and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.


Assange’s lawyers say the Trump administration has pressurised Ecuador to hand over Assange, making increasingly overt threats.

In December, the New York Times reported that Ecuador’s new president, Lenin Moreno tried to negotiate handing over Mr Assange to the US. in exchange for “debt relief”.


The application also highlights what it says are “espionage operations” against Assange in the London embassy.

Default re: Julian Assange Arrested & Dragged From London Embassy

JULIAN ASSANGE to Be Expelled From Ecuadorian Embassy in London WITHIN HOURS say WikiLeaks

Julian Assange, the fugitive computer programmer, is set to be expelled from the Ecuadorian embassy in London “within hours”, a “high-level” source claims.


Express UK/AP, 5 APR 2019.



WikiLeaks tweeted on Thursday night, 4 April 2019 :

“A high-level source within the Ecuadorian state has told WikiLeaks that Julian Assange will be expelled within 'hours to days' using the INA papers offshore scandal as a pretext and that it already has an agreement with the UK for his arrest.”






The WikiLeaks founder has been in the London building since 2012 after seeking asylum there .


Mr Assange is wanted by American authorities for his role in publishing secret US documents.

According to The Guardian UK, Ecuador’s president, Lenin Moreno, said Mr Assange had “repeatedly violated” some of the conditions of his asylum.

Mr Moreno said that “Assange cannot lie or, much less, hack into private accounts or private phones”.

Mr Assange was also ordered by Ecuador to not “intervene in the politics of countries, or worse friendly countries”.

The president claims that photos of his bedroom, wife and family were circulated online, although he didn’t accuse Mr Assange of doing this.






He added: “We should ensure Mr Assange’s life is not at risk but he’s violated the agreement we have with him so many times.”


In 2010, an international arrest warrant was issued for Mr Assange amid the sexual assault claims in Sweden.

Denying the allegations, Assange said he would be extradited from Sweden to the US because of his role in the publication of secret documents.


The leaks included Afghanistan and Iraq war logs, a video entitled ‘Collateral Murder’ and CableGate.


Sweden cancelled that arrest warrant & charges against Mr Assange nearly 2 years ago after the accusations were withdrawn from the complainant after she admitted she had lied..

Movies re: Assange's Father Talks & Secrets From Inside Embassy

A Soaring Ego,Vile Personal Habits, and After Years in His Squalid Den, & Hardly a Friend Left: GUY ADAMS on The Downfall of Julian Assange

  • The WikiLeaks founder cut a bizarre and pathetic figure when he was arrested
  • Assange has fallen out with many allies during his stay at the embassy
  • His reputation among liberals was damaged by the 2016 US election
Daily Mail UK, 12APR 2019...






Julian Assange gestures to the media from a police vehicle on his arrival at Westminster Magistrates' Court yesterday...









The Wikileaks founder's appearance has drastically changed since moving into the embassy, pictured here in 2009, and 2012....






For seven long years, he has resided in one of London's glitziest neighbourhoods – but there was nothing remotely glamorous about the manner in which Julian Assange was finally evicted from his Knightsbridge bolthole.

Ranting and dishevelled, with his hands cuffed and straggly beard unwashed, the 47-year-old WikiLeaks founder cut a bizarre and somewhat pathetic figure as he was carried horizontally into a police wagon at around 10am yesterday.

The one-time hero of the chattering classes, who was uncharitably likened to both a vagrant and Albert Trotter from Only Fools and Horses by onlookers, has now swapped his virtual prison for a real one.

Given the extent of the various criminal charges he now faces, it seems unlikely that he'll taste fresh air and freedom for some time.

Particularly unedifying, for a man who (according at least one interviewer) counts typing his own name into Google as a favourite recreational activity, will be the dramatic decline in popularity that his various misadventures have wrought.

Assange has managed, during his marathon stay at the Ecuadorian Embassy, to fall out with a host of former allies, including many Left-leaning celebrity friends who not only fought his corner, but also financed his expensive legal battles, and at times put him up in their various mansions.

The high-profile supporters to turn against him range from feminists queasy at his decision to jump bail to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he was wanted for questioning after two women accused him of rape and sexual assault, to many free speech campaigners for whom he was once a great hero of our age.

The latter group were outraged by the revelation a few years ago that, seemingly due to a combination of egotism and paranoia, Assange was making WikiLeaks employees sign contracts threatening them with a £12million lawsuit if they spoke publicly about his organisation.

Meanwhile, Assange's reputation among liberals of every persuasion was severely dented in 2016, when WikiLeaks played a key role in the murky campaign to destabilise Hillary Clinton during the 2016 US election campaign, publishing emails seemingly obtained from her campaign team by Russian hackers.

It was, however, the breakdown of Julian Assange's once-chummy relationship with the government of Ecuador that really sealed his fate.

After his arrival in 2012, the country's hard-Left then president, Rafael Correa, had initially said, that he was welcome to stay in the embassy, a stone's throw from Harrods, for 'centuries'.

Yet as the years went by, the mutual affection soured, with staff reportedly tiring of their house guest's often belligerent manner and questionable approach to personal hygiene, along with the vast amount of cash it was taking to house him.

Economic troubles have made Ecuador increasingly anxious to rebuild relations with the West, and all too aware of damage that his ongoing residency was doing to their diplomatic standing.

By last year, Assange and his hosts were communicating via lawyers. And in the final months of his stay, relations deteriorated to such an extent that the WikiLeaks founder was even accused of having smeared human waste across the internal walls of his residence

'During his stay at the Ecuadorian Embassy, during the government of the former president Rafael Correa, they tolerated things like Mr Assange putting faeces on the walls of the Embassy and other types of behaviour of this kind that is far removed from the minimum respect a guest should have in a country which has generously welcomed him,' said the country's interior minister.

To evoke such hostility from people who were once close allies is nothing if not true to form.

For ever since he burst into the public eye, as the eccentric founder of a website devoted to publishing previously-secret material, Assange's life has been overshadowed by an apparent inability to maintain cordial relations with even his most fervent supporters.

Some acquaintances have described this characteristic as 'a bit autistic'.

Other former friends have said he's governed by a toxic combination of 'eccentricity, obsession, paranoia and ego'.




Assange lived mostly off takeaway food in the embassy where he resided, swapping restaurants as feared he was going to be poisoned.




WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange (pictured in 2014) appeared in coutr yesterday having been held over leaking classified US diplomatic cables





Assange is pictured here at the embassy in 2015 with the Reverend Jesse Jackson.


Former allies turned adversaries include the Guardian newspaper, which collaborated with him to leak hundreds of thousands of US military and diplomatic cables in the summer and autumn of 2010, turning him into a global celebrity in the process – and, critics said, risking national security and even lives.

Assange, who grew up in Melbourne, and became a computer hacker during the 1990s, had made headlines earlier that year, when his previously-obscure website released a video titled 'collateral murder'.

It showed a US Apache helicopter in Baghdad repeatedly firing on a group of men, including a Reuters photographer and his driver, killing 12.

He and the Guardian soon struck a deal to publish the various tranches of leaked US cables (which had been obtained by a US army private called Bradley Manning, who later transitioned and said she wanted to be known as Chelsea), in collaboration with two other newspapers: the New York Times and the German title Der Spiegel.

On paper, it was to be a commendable piece of public interest journalism. But behind the scenes there were complications.

Specifically: the newspapers believed that many of the documents needed to be heavily redacted before publication, in order to prevent people named in them, including various Western soldiers and Afghan or Iraqi civilians, from suffering reprisals.

Assange, who disliked redaction in principle, was less convinced, and the two sides began to bicker.

By November, he'd stopped passing on further documents to the outlets – only for disaffected WikiLeaks staff, who regarded Assange as 'erratic and imperious' and were tired of his 'nearly delusional grandeur', to leak them anyway.

Assange then tried and failed to sue, to stop publication. In the fallout, the Guardian accused him of '360 degree belligerence'. He meanwhile described their staff as 'lily-livered gits in glass offices'. Relations never recovered.

Then came the ugly episode that led to his arrest and eventual incarceration. In August 2010, Assange's growing celebrity had seen him invited to visit Stockholm, where he slept with two female fans, according to their subsequent testimony to the police.





In 2016 he highlighted a UN report that said his detention should be brought to an end...



Both said their encounters had started on a consensual basis, but later turned darker.
One of the women claimed he'd intentionally damaged a condom, before pinning her down during sex. The other accused him of having unprotected sex with her while she was asleep.

A police investigation was duly launched, but by the time detectives decided they needed to question Assange about the allegations, he'd left the country.

In November 2010, they obtained an international arrest warrant. He was duly arrested, beginning a lengthy legal battle which saw Assange, who has always protested his innocence, initially take up residence at Ellingham Hall, a stately home in Norfolk owned by a supporter called Vaughan Smith, a former war correspondent.

While there, Assange declared that the rape claims were part of a conspiracy to extradite him to the US, where he believed he might face the death penalty for espionage.

Perhaps ungallantly, he also describe his female accusers as being motivated by 'hardcore feminism'.

Around this time, he also spent months working on an autobiography, for which he signed a multi-million pound deal. But the project soon collapsed in hugely acrimonious circumstances after he fell out with his agents and publishers.

The author Andrew O'Hagan, who'd been hired as a ghost writer, later wrote an eye-opening memoir of the period, saying that Assange spent average days 'sat on his a***', and alleging that his favourite activity was 'following what people, especially his enemies, were saying about him on the internet'.





Assange, seen last year, was dragged out of the Ecuadorian Embassy in handcuffs by a large group of men as stunned supporters and protesters watched on in central London






This graphic shows how Assange's dramatic arrest unfolded at the Ecuadorian Embassy



Hagan further accused Assange of making a variety of 'sexist or anti-Semitic remarks' in his presence, and described his table manners as being 'like a pig' saying he would eat food with his hands, before holding the plate up and licking it clean.

Perhaps more seriously, given legal developments, he accused Assange of having a predatory attitude towards women, recalling how he'd ogled a 14-year-old girl during an outing to a Norfolk cafe.

He also quoted Assange's girlfriend at the time, a WikiLeaks activist called Sarah Harrison, saying: 'He openly chats girls up and has his hand on their a***… and goes nuts if I even talk to another guy.'

Similarly ugly claims about Assange's alleged misogyny were made at around the same time, by Daniel Domscheit-Berg, a WikiLeaks' staffer who wrote a memoir that later became a film called Fifth Estate, starring Benedict Cumberbatch.

Domscheit-Berg wrote: 'His main criterion for a woman was simple. She had to be young, preferably under 22. She was allowed to be intelligent – Julian liked that – but it went without saying that she couldn't question him.'

(Assange is believed to have at least four children by different women, scattered across the globe, including an estranged 20-something son called Daniel who has used Twitter to called him 'a criminal mastermind with a political vision'.)

Assange's legal case rumbled on, partly financed by a variety of well-heeled backers, including Leftish film makers Ken Loach and Michael Moore, and documentary maker Jemima Goldsmith, who put up £94,000 for his bail.






Vice President Mike Pence spoke to Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno about Assange during a June 28, 2018 visit. The leaders agreed to continue talking about the subject, U.S. officials said at the time....



But it was money they would all, eventually lose, causing several of them (notably Goldsmith) to end their friendships with Assange.


On the night of June 19, 2012, with his legal options running out and his extradition imminent, the WikiLeaks turned up at the Ecuadorian embassy on Hans Crescent in Knightsbridge, disguised as a motorbike courier, and claimed asylum.

Initially, Assange was given a small room measuring 15ft by 13ft, one of ten rooms in the embassy, where he slept on an inflatable mattress.

But he found the street outside too noisy, so moved to a nearby women's bathroom, with staff removing a lavatory so that he could fit in.

Eventually, he was given a third room, which became the WikiLeaks office. Gifts from well-wishers included a lamp, to mimic natural light, and a treadmill, supplied by Loach, which he jogged on daily.

He lived mostly off takeaway food, swapping restaurants as feared he was going to be poisoned.

For the first couple of years, Assange's stock among so-called 'influencers' remained relatively high.

He entertained such celebrities as Lady Gaga, Americam actors John Cusack and Maggie Gyllenhaal, Yoko Ono and her son Sean Lennon, former footballer Eric Cantona, musicians PJ Harvey and Brian Eno and Left-leaning fashion designer Vivienne Westwood.

In 2012, he released a book called Cyberpunks about the future of the internet and guest-starred as himself in the 500th episode of The Simpsons, recording his lines over the telephone.

More recent years saw him forge a bizarre relationship with former Baywatch actress Pamela Anderson, who declared, 'I think he's sexy', but later denied any romantic entanglement.

Opinon began to change roughly two years later, partly due to public anger about the £10,000 a day cost to Scotland Yard of policing the Embassy, and partly due the growing number of revelations about Assange's private behaviour and attitudes.

Embassy staff had also begun to tire of their sometimes tricky house guest, with unsourced quotations appearing in print suggesting they were horrified by some aspects of his personal hygiene, and irritated by habits that included skateboarding and playing football in the small corridors.

One visitor recalled: 'Julian eats everything with his hands and he always wipes his fingers on his pants. I have never seen any pants as greasy as his in my whole life.'

Also upsetting his hosts were Assange's various romantic entanglements.

'The Ecuadorians are very Catholic,' one observer told Vanity Fair magazine at the time, saying they disproved of him sleeping with unmarried women under their roof.

Hostility escalated in 2016, when he played a key role in leaking emails sent and received by Hillary Clinton during the US presidential election campaign.

It was later claimed that he'd secretly met the former Trump campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, several times at the embassy during the period.

The revelation horrified many of his former supporters and was deeply uncomfortable for Ecuador, which had been working hard to build relations with the West.

In 2017, Ecuador, elected a new president, Lenin Moreno, who had a less chummy attitude towards Assange than his predecessor, describing him as a 'hacker'.

The following year, the Latin American country began limiting his access to the internet and issued a raft of 'house rules' including instructions for him to 'conserve the cleanliness and hygiene of the bathroom and other spaces' and take responsibility for 'the well-being, food, cleanliness and proper care of your pet', a cat called Michi, which was poorly house-trained.

Last March, Assange was briefly banned from contact with the outside world (except via his legal team) after he posted a tweet questioning the British claim that Russia was behind the Novichok attack in Salisbury.

Then he accused the Ecuadorian government of an 'extensive spying operation', claiming they had begun to film and record his daily life using security cameras inside the building.

A New Yorker interviewer captured his growing paranoia, saying he 'believes he is under surveillance by forces unknown' and noting: 'When he conducts interviews or discusses WikiLeaks plans he plays white noise or runs a domestic appliances like a blender to overwhelm any listening devices.'

It further claimed he was suffering bouts of depression, and that his sleep has been disrupted by anxiety, adding: 'He often stays awake for 18, or 20, or 22 hours, until he collapses from exhaustion.'

In October, Assange sued the government of Ecuador for 'violating his fundamental rights'.

More recently, associates claimed intimate footage taken inside the building had been improperly leaked and was now being used to blackmail him for $3million.

It was no way to treat a generous host – and just like so many of the former friends he's fallen out with, they decided to take revenge on their troublesome guest. Today he's someone else's problem.


Quote:
The Police Bill? £13m and Counting...

Scotland Yard has given the figure of £13.2million as the cost of guarding the Ecuadorian embassy while Assange was inside – but the true figure is likely to be far higher.

Uniformed officers were permanently stationed outside the embassy in Kensington, west London, from when the WikiLeaks founder arrived in June 2012 until October 2015.

At this point, the permanent deployment was stood down as police deemed it was ‘no longer proportionate’.

Under Freedom of Information laws, the Metropolitan Police has revealed that it cost at least £13.2million to guard the embassy from 2012 to 2015.

It said £7.2million had been incurred in police pay, £3.8million in overtime and £2.2million in admin overheads and costs to supporting departments.

Scotland Yard has refused to reveal costs incurred after 2015 for undercover officers and other surveillance.

It argued the release of such information would ‘cause operational harm’.
It also said it would ‘allow extremists to gauge the level of policing deployed to a specific site’ and adversely affect relations with Ecuador.
Last night the Metropolitan Police said it was ‘looking into’ whether it could provide an updated figure.

Update re: Assange Jailed in UK for Breaching Bail & His Father Talks

JULIAN ASSANGE WORLD EXCLUSIVE: Secrets From Inside The Embassy

There’s no middle ground when it comes to what the world thinks of Julian Assange. He’s either loved or loathed.


60 Minutes Australia, 28 Apr 2019


Just over a fortnight ago, the Australian founder of WikiLeaks made more headlines when police dragged him, not so much kicking, but definitely screaming, out of the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he’d been holed up for seven years.

Watching the shock eviction was Assange’s father, John Shipton, fears his son will be sent to the United States, locked up and never released.

In a 60 MINUTES world exclusive, Shipton tells Tara Brown he wants everyone to know the real Julian Assange is not some careless villain computer hacker, but a hero of free speech.

Update re: Julian Assange > Hero or Villain?

Julian Assange Jailed in UK for 50 Weeks for Breaching Bail in 2012

WikiLeaks founder breached bail by entering Ecuadorian embassy seven years ago

The Guardian UK, 1 MAY 2019.


Julian Assange has been sentenced to just under a year in jail for breaching bail conditions after spending almost seven years inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

A judge largely rejected the mitigating factors put forward by lawyers for the WikiLeaks founder, who had also written a letter in which he expressed regret for his actions but claimed he had been left with no choice.

In the letter, read out in court by his lawyer, Mark Summers, Assange said: “I apologise unreservedly to those who consider that I have disrespected them by the way I have pursued my case. This is not what I wanted or intended.

“I found myself struggling with terrifying circumstances for which neither I nor those from whom I sought advice could work out any remedy. I did what I thought at the time was the best and perhaps the only thing that could be done – which I hoped might lead to a legal resolution being reached between Ecuador and Sweden that would protect me from the worst of my fears.

“I regret the course that this took; the difficulties were instead compounded and impacted upon very many others. While the difficulties I now face may have become even greater, nevertheless it is right for me to say this now.”

Assange, who took refuge in the embassy in 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden on rape accusations, was arrested on 11 April after Ecuador terminated his asylum.


Timeline

June 2010 – October 2010

WikiLeaks releases about 470,000 classified military documents concerning American diplomacy and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. It later releases a further tranche of more than 250,000 classified US diplomatic cables.


November 2010

A Swedish prosecutor issues a European arrest warrant for Assange over sexual assault allegations involving two Swedish women. Assange denies the claims.


December 2010

He turns himself in to police in London and is placed in custody. He is later released on bail and calls the Swedish allegations a smear campaign.


February 2011

A British judge rules that Assange can be extradited to Sweden. Assange fears Sweden will hand him over to US authorities who could prosecute him.


June 2012

He takes refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. He requests, and is later granted, political asylum.


February 2016

The UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention says Assange has been 'arbitrarily detained' and should be able to claim compensation from Britain and Sweden. Britain and Sweden rebuff the non-binding ruling.


November 2016

Assange is questioned in a two-day interview over the allegations at the Ecuadorian embassy by Swedish authorities.


January 2017

WikiLeaks says Assange could travel to the United States to face investigation if his rights are 'guaranteed'. It comes after one of the site's main sources of leaked documents, Chelsea Manning, is given clemency.


March 2017

Nigel Farage is spotted visiting the Ecuadorian embassy.


May 2017

Swedish prosecutors say they have closed their seven-year sex assault investigation into Assange. British police say they would still arrest him if he leaves the embassy as he breached the terms of his bail in 2012.


January 2018

Britain refuses Ecuador's request to accord Assange diplomatic status, which would allow him to leave the embassy without being arrested.


February 2018

He loses a bid to have his British arrest warrant cancelled on health grounds.


March 2018

Ecuador cuts off Assange's internet access alleging he broke an agreement on interfering in other countries' affairs.


November 2018

US prosecutors inadvertently disclose the existence of a sealed indictment against Assange.



2 April 2019

Ecuador's President Lenin Moreno says Assange has 'repeatedly violated' the conditions of his asylum at the embassy.


11 April 2019

Police arrest Assange at the embassy after his asylum was withdrawn. Scotland Yard confirmed that Assange was arrested on behalf of the US after receiving a request for his extradition. Assange has been charged by the US with 'a federal charge of conspiracy to commit computer intrusion for agreeing to break a password to a classified U.S. government computer.'


1 May 2019

He is jailed for 50 weeks in the UK for breaching his bail conditions back in 2012. An apology letter from Assange is read out in court, but the judge rules that he had engaged in a “deliberate attempt to evade justice”.





The 47-year-old was appearing at Southwark crown court, where Judge Deborah Taylor said that he had engaged in a “deliberate attempt to evade justice”.

To gasps from a few dozen Assange supporters in the public gallery, the judge said that a number of factors put his refusal to surrender in the highest tier – category A – of the offence.

By entering the embassy he deliberately put himself out of range of investigators, she told Assange. “You exploited your privileged position to flout the law and advertised internationally your disdain for the law of this country,” she added.

She also told him that even though he did cooperate initially with the investigation “it was not for you to decide the nature of your cooperation with the Swedish investigation” and his continued residency in the embassy had been an attempt to delay and thwart the process.

The judge also referred to the expenditure of £16m of taxpayers’ money on policing resources outside the embassy for the period in which he was there.

“It is essential that no one is above or beyond the reach of the law,” she concluded, before sentencing Assange to 50 weeks.

Counsel for Assange had laid out a number of mitigating factors, claiming that Assange lived in fear of being rendered from Sweden to the US, where politicians had talked of having him assassinated.

The case of Chelsea Manning and the conditions in which the US military whistleblower was kept was also instanced, as was the case of individuals who were rendered from Sweden to the US in chains and after being drugged for transatlantic flights.

Update re: Julian Assange > Hero or Villain?

Sajid Javid Signs US Extradition Order for Julian Assange

British home secretary says final decision on WikiLeaks founder is ‘now with the courts’

The Guardian UK, 13 JUNE 2019.


The home secretary, Sajid Javid, has revealed he has signed a request for Julian Assange to be extradited to the US where he faces charges of computer hacking.

Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme on Thursday, Javid said: “He’s rightly behind bars. There’s an extradition request from the US that is before the courts tomorrow but yesterday I signed the extradition order and certified it and that will be going in front of the courts tomorrow.”

Javid’s decision opens the way to the court sending the WikiLeaks founder to the US. Assange faces an 18-count indictment, issued by the US Department of Justice, that includes charges under the Espionage Act. He is accused of soliciting and publishing classified information and conspiring to hack into a government computer.

Javid said: “It is a decision ultimately for the courts, but there is a very important part of it for the home secretary and I want to see justice done at all times and we’ve got a legitimate extradition request, so I’ve signed it, but the final decision is now with the courts.”

The 47-year-old Australian was too ill to appear last month at a hearing at Westminster magistrates court in relation to the US request. The hearing has been rescheduled for Friday, and depending on Assange’s condition, may take place at Belmarsh prison where he is being held.

Javid’s decision follows news last week that an attempt to extradite Assange to Sweden had had a setback after a court in Uppsala said he did not need to be detained.

The ruling by the district court prevented Swedish prosecutors from applying immediately for an extradition warrant for Assange to face an allegation of rape dating back to 2010. Assange denies the accusation.

Assange is serving a 50-week sentence in Britain for skipping bail after he spent seven years in the Ecuadorian embassy in London attempting to avoid extradition to Sweden.

Swedish prosecutors dropped their rape investigation in 2017 but reopened it after Ecuador rescinded its offer of asylum to Assange in April this year and allowed British police to arrest him.

Thomas Garner, an extradition lawyer at Gherson Solicitors, said Javid’s certification of the request was “an important though merely procedural step” to start the extradition process.

“I would expect the court to set a preliminary timetable for the extradition process tomorrow,” he said. “It is likely to be many months before any hearing at the magistrates court and of course either side may then seek to appeal that decision in due course. Despite this, the Swedish authorities will be monitoring the process carefully as the further down the line the US proceedings get the harder it might become for the home secretary to give precedence to any competing request.”

Default re: Julian Assange > Hero or Villain?

i have no idea if he did any of this so i can't say i hope he goes to jail or hope he doesn't. but regardless of that they are always after wikileaks and i do think it is political since the stuff i've heard from the site has been just that political.



though i doubt Trump even knows what that site even is, so i doubt he'll get interested in this. he prefers sites that lie like bright bart spelling? that lie and etc..


i've never visited wikileaks before cause i always get the feeling that site is being watched none stop kinda like how the dark web is, so i stay the hell off it just to be safe,and yes i am quite aware i'm prolly worried about nothing but you never know ya know?

Update re: Assange was Stripped NAKED! >Extradition Hearing Adjourned Until May

Hero or Villain: The Prosecution of Julian Assange

ABC News (Australia). 22 Jul 2019


Julian Assange is one of the most influential figures to emerge this century. The Australian born founder of WikiLeaks has harnessed the technology of the digital age to unleash an information war against governments and corporations.


WikiLeaks has collaborated with anonymous sources to release highly classified and often deeply embarrassing information to the world. The organisation exploded onto the world stage in 2010 when it began publishing a series of spectacular leaks laying bare the conduct of the United States.

At the centre of it all was Julian Assange. The leaks sparked ferocious debate over the right to know and the right to keep secrets.

Now Julian Assange is in the fight of his life. In April this year he was dragged, protesting, from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, nearly seven years after seeking diplomatic protection. He is facing extradition to the United States on espionage charges stemming from the spectacular 2010 leaks by Private Chelsea Manning.

Everyone has an opinion about Julian Assange, but now you will hear from those who have been on the inside. Four Corners investigates the prosecution of Julian Assange in key interviews with those at the heart of WikiLeaks and those who have sought to bring him to US justice.

These insider accounts give powerful insights into how these momentous events have unfolded.

The United States vs Julian Assange | Four Corners

ABC News In-depth



In the 2016 race to the White House, presidential candidate Donald Trump took a shine to the whistleblowing site WikiLeaks, led by its Australian founder Julian Assange. Trump revelled in the damage inflicted upon his opponent, Hillary Clinton, by a series of sensational leaks published by the site.

Now, as President, Donald Trump has performed a spectacular flip, presiding over an administration determined to imprison the publisher of the leaks.

In Part Two of its investigation into Julian Assange, Four Corners looks at Assange’s activities conducted during the nearly seven years he spent sheltering in the Ecuadorian Embassy.

Cross Party Political Group Forms to Stop Extradition of Julian Assange

ABC News (Australia) •18 Feb 2020


Julian Assange has long been a polarising figure but as he sits in a British prison facing extradition to the US, an unlikely coalition of Australian politicians has formed behind him.

Conservative MPs have joined forces with the Greens, Labour and independent MP Andrew Wilkie to lobby the government to prevent the transfer.

Update re: Julian Assange Had 2 Children With Woman While in Embassy

Julian Assange was Handcuffed 11 Times and He was Stripped Naked & Had His Case Files Confiscated After The First Day of His Extradition Hearing

Lawyers Complain of Interference After First Day of Extradition Hearing...Sources 'Disappeared'
& US Files were Leaked for Political Ends

Julian Assange's lawyers say Extradition Treaty prevents extradition for political offences

The Guardian UK, 28 FEB, 2020.


Julian Assange was handcuffed 11 times, stripped naked twice and had his case files confiscated after the first day of his extradition hearing, according to his lawyers, who complained of interference in his ability to take part.

Their appeal to the judge overseeing the trial at Woolwich crown court in south-east London was also supported by legal counsel for the US government, who said it was essential the WikiLeaks founder be given a fair trial.

Edward Fitzgerald QC, acting for Assange, said the case files, which the prisoner was reading in court on Monday, were confiscated by guards when he returned to prison later that night and that he was put in five cells.

The judge, Vanessa Baraitser, replied that she did not have the legal power to comment or rule on Assange’s conditions but encouraged the defence team to formally raise the matter with the prison.

The details emerged on the second day of Assange’s extradition hearing, during which his legal team denied that he had “knowingly placed lives at risk” by publishing unredacted US government files.

The court was told Wikileaks had entered into a collaboration with the Guardian, El País, the New York Times and other media outlets to make redactions to 250,000 leaked cables in 2010 and published them.

Mark Summers, QC, claimed the unredacted files had been published because a password to this material had appeared in a Guardian book on the affair. “The gates got opened not by Assange or WikiLeaks but by another member of that partnership,” he said.

The Guardian denied the claim.


UPDATE: Extradition Treaty Adjourned Until May


Julian Assange’s legal team has rejected a suggestion by lawyers for US authorities that his actions were not “political offences”, arguing that the WikiLeaks founder had published classified documents to highlight human rights abuses.

On the fourth day of Assange’s extradition hearing in London, before proceedings were adjourned until May, his barrister, Edward Fitzgerald QC, said the motives for publishing confidential information about Guantánamo Bay and the actions of the US military in Iraq and Afghanistan were political.

Assange faces 18 charges in the US of attempted hacking and breaches of the Espionage Act over the publication of classified US cables a decade ago. His defence argues that he should be protected from extradition because the US-UK treaty rules it out for political offences.

James Lewis QC, a barrister for the US authorities, argued earlier on Thursday that Assange’s actions were not inherently political as they did not have the direct purpose of overthrowing the US government or changing US government policy. “Any bare assertion that WikiLeaks was engaged in a struggle with the US government ... needs to be examined far more,” he told Woolwich crown court.

Fitzgerald responded that Assange didn’t only seek to change US government policy, but that he succeeded. “WikiLeaks didn’t just seek to induce change, it did induce change,” he said, referring to the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq.

“What other purpose can there be publishing the Apache helicopter strike [video, showing the killing of 12 people] and [US] rules of engagement than to show that the war was being waged in a way that conflicted with fundamental human rights?

“What other point can there be to releasing the Guantánamo Bay files than to induce a government change of policy? And the same for revealing civilian deaths in the Iraq war – [it] was to induce a change in government policy.’’

Assange is accused of working with the former US army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to leak hundreds of thousands of classified documents, which the US authorities say put the lives of their informants in danger.

The extradition hearing began on Monday. After an initial week of legal argument, the proceedings were adjourned and will continue with three weeks of evidence scheduled to begin on 18 May.

Assange’s lawyers are expected to call a former employee of a Spanish security company to give evidence. The person claims surveillance was carried out on Assange while he was living in Ecuador’s London embassy, on behalf of the US, and that conversations had turned to potentially kidnapping or poisoning him.

Assange complained on Wednesday that he was unable to communicate with his lawyers from his position in the dock. “I am as much a participant in these proceedings as I am watching Wimbledon,” he said.

Mark Summers QC argued on Thursday that his client should be allowed to sit with his lawyers during May’s hearings. He said that secure docks – in which defendants sit behind bulletproof glass – were a relatively recent phenomenon in English courts and had been criticised for their impact on a fair trial.

During Summers’s submissions, Assange twice stood up to try to communicate with his lawyers, but wasn’t immediately noticed. “That is exactly the problem. You see when I’m worried about something,” he said.

The judge, Vanessa Baraitser, rejected the argument, saying Assange should tell the court if he was struggling to hear. She told Assange it had been clear over the previous few days that he had had no difficulty attracting the attention of his legal team and communicating with them via notes.

Assange has been on remand in Belmarsh prison since last September after serving a 50-week jail sentence for breaching his bail conditions by taking refuge in Ecuador’s London embassy in 2012. He did so to avoid extradition to Sweden over sexual assault allegations.

June 2010 – October 2010

WikiLeaks releases about 470,000 classified military documents concerning American diplomacy and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. It later releases a further tranche of more than 250,000 classified US diplomatic cables.

November 2010

A Swedish prosecutor issues a European arrest warrant for Assange over sexual assault allegations involving two Swedish women. Assange denies the claims.

December 2010

He turns himself in to police in London and is placed in custody. He is later released on bail and calls the Swedish allegations a smear campaign.

February 2011

A British judge rules that Assange can be extradited to Sweden. Assange fears Sweden will hand him over to US authorities who could prosecute him.

June 2012

He takes refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. He requests, and is later granted, political asylum.

November 2016

Assange is questioned in a two-day interview over the allegations at the Ecuadorian embassy by Swedish authorities.

January 2017

WikiLeaks says Assange could travel to the United States to face investigation if his rights are 'guaranteed'. It comes after one of the site's main sources of leaked documents, Chelsea Manning, is given clemency.

May 2017

Swedish prosecutors say they have closed their seven-year sex assault investigation into Assange. British police say they would still arrest him if he leaves the embassy as he breached the terms of his bail in 2012.

January 2018

1 May 2019

He is jailed for 50 weeks in the UK for breaching his bail conditions back in 2012. An apology letter from Assange is read out in court, but the judge rules that he had engaged in a 'deliberate attempt to evade justice'. On the following day the US extradition proceedings were formally started.

13 May 2019

Swedish prosecutors announce they are reopening an investigation into a rape allegation against Julian Assange.

13 June 2019

Home secretary Sajid Javid reveals he has signed the US extradition order for Assange paving the way for it to be heard in court.

24 February 2020

Assange's extradition hearing begins at Woolwich crown court in south-east London.

After a week of opening arguments, the extradition case is to be adjourned until May, when the two sides will lay out their evidence. The judge is not expected to rule until several months after that, with the losing side likely to appeal. If the courts approve extradition, the British government will have the final say.

Release Julian Assange, Says Woman Who Had Two Children With Him While in Embassy

Stella Moris, who had two sons with WikiLeaks founder while he was in Ecuadorian embassy, says he is in danger from coronavirus while in prison

The Guardian UK 13 APR 2020


The partner of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has revealed that she had two children with him while he was living inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

Stella Moris, 37, a South African-born lawyer, issued a plea for the father of her two young sons, Gabriel, three, and Max, one, to be released from prison and said there were genuine fears for Assange’s health.

Assange was forcibly dragged out of the embassy and arrested in April last year, after Ecuador revoked his political asylum and invited Metropolitan police officers inside their Knightsbridge premises. He had been living at the embassy for nearly seven years.

Assange has since been held in Belmarsh prison in London, where he is serving a 50-week jail term for violating his bail conditions. He is awaiting an extradition hearing on 18 May on behalf of the US, where he is wanted for questioning over the activities of WikiLeaks and likely facing espionage charges.

In a statement to the courts supporting an application for bail, Moris revealed that she met Assange in 2011 when she was a legal researcher and looking into ways to halt Assange’s extradition.

“Over time Julian and I developed a strong intellectual and emotional bond. He became my best friend and I became his,” she wrote.

In 2015, Moris and Assange began a relationship despite the “extraordinary circumstances”, she said, and became engaged in 2017.

She said she had gone to great lengths to protect the couple’s children from the climate that surrounds Assange, adding that she was making the statement now because their lives were “on the brink” and she feared Assange could die.

According to Moris, Assange is in isolation for 23 hours a day and all visits have stopped.

“My close relationship with Julian has been the opposite of how he is viewed – of reserve, respect for each other and attempts to shield each other from some of the nightmares that have surrounded our lives together,” Moris said.

In an interview with the Mail on Sunday, Moris said Assange had watched the births of both children in London hospitals via live video link and met Gabriel after he was smuggled into the embassy.

She further revealed that both boys had visited their father in prison, and that the couple were planning to marry, whether Assange is released or not.


Friends and supporters of Assange, among them celebrities including Pamela Anderson, have said he has been in poor health for many months and have expressed growing concern for his wellbeing since the coronavirus outbreak.

HMP Belmarsh has repeatedly come under scrutiny in recent years, lastly after a remand prisoner was found dead in his cell in January, triggering an investigation by the prisons and probation ombudsman.

The man was the third prisoner to have died in Belmarsh within the past year. Another inmate was found dead there in November.


A judge at Westminster magistrates court rejected the request for an adjournment of Assange’s extradition hearing in May until September over what his legal team said were “insuperable” difficulties preparing his case because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Julian Assange's Hidden Family Revealed-While inside the Embassy | Top secrets (2020)

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has made his name – and plenty of enemies – by publishing military and other highly sensitive secrets of multiple governments around the world.

60 Minutes Australia •21 Jun 2020



As a consequence, he now calls a maximum-security jail in England home while he fights a bitter battle with the Trump administration which wants him extradited to the United States.

Before prison, the controversial – and now very frail – Australian spent seven years holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. And that’s where Assange conceived his own top secrets – two sons with his, until now, equally secretive fiancée, Stella Moris.

Witness Says Julian Assanges' Leaked Documents About War Crimes Didn't Put Lives at Risk

ABC News •21 Sep 2020


In a London criminal court, the famed whistleblower who leaked the Pentagon Papers in 1971 has said Julian Assange's Wikileaks disclosures about war crimes was of equal significance.

Daniel Ellsberg also said accusations by the US Government that Mr Assange had put lives at risk by publishing the names of US informants had not been borne out by the evidence.

Australian-born Assange is fighting against being sent to the United States, where he's charged with conspiring to hack government computers and violating an espionage law over the release of confidential cables by WikiLeaks in 2010-2011.

Julian Assange Cannot Be Extradited to US, British Judge Rules

Judge says it would be ‘oppressive’ to extradite WikiLeaks founder to US, citing concerns for his mental health

The 49-year-old Wikileaks founder is wanted for allegedly conspiring to hack government computers and violating an espionage law over the release of confidential cables


BBC News, 4 JAN 2021.





The 49-year-old faces 18 charges in the US (Image: AFP/Getty


Julian Assange cannot be extradited to the US to face charges of espionage and of hacking government computers, a British judge has decided.

Lawyer for US authorities are to appeal against the ruling, which was delivered at the central criminal court by the district judge, Vanessa Baraitser.

Delivering her ruling the judge said said the WikiLeaks founder was likely to be held in conditions of isolation in a so-called supermax prison in the US and procedures described by US authorities would not prevent him from potentially finding a way to take his own life.

“I find that the mental condition of Mr Assange is such that it would be oppressive to extradite him to the United States of America,” she said.

Assange has been taken back to Belmarsh prison ahead of an application on Wednesday for his release on bail, which will refer to conditions at the high-security prison in south London against the backdrop of the worsening Covid-19 pandemic.

The judge’s decision, focusing on Assange’s health, came after she knocked down one argument after another made last year by Assange’s lawyers. Sending him to the US would not breach a bar on extradition for “political offences” she said, and she had no reason to doubt that “the usual constitutional and procedural protections” would be applied to a trial he might face in the US.

But she accepted the evidence of prominent medical experts, including details of how Assange had suffered from depression while in prison in London. “The overall impression is of a depressed and sometimes despairing man who is genuinely depressed about his future,” said Baraitser.

The case against the 49-year-old relates to WikiLeaks’s publication of hundreds of thousands of leaked documents about the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, as well as diplomatic cables, in 2010 and 2011.

Prosecutors say Assange helped the US defence analyst Chelsea Manning breach the US Espionage Act, was complicit in hacking by others and published classified information that endangered informants.

Assange denies plotting with Manning to crack an encrypted password on US computers and says there is no evidence anyone’s safety was compromised. His lawyers argue the prosecution is politically motivated and that he is being pursued because WikiLeaks published US government documents that revealed evidence of war crimes and human rights abuses.

At the weekend, Assange’s partner had said a decision to extradite the WikiLeaks co-founder to the US would be “politically and legally disastrous for the UK

At the weekend, Assange’s partner had said a decision to extradite the WikiLeaks co-founder to the US would be “politically and legally disastrous for the UK”.

Stella Moris, who has two children with Assange, said a decision to allow extradition would be an “unthinkable travesty”, adding in an article published by the Mail on Sunday that it would rewrite the rules of what it was permissible to publish in Britain.

“Overnight, it would chill free and open debate about abuses by our own government and by many foreign ones, too.”

Over the course of hearings last year, lawyers for Assange had called witnesses who told the court that WikiLeaks had played a vital role in bring revelations to light that exposed the way in which the US had conducted wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Among them, the founder of the legal charity Reprieve, Clive Stafford-Smith, said “grave violations of law” such as the use of US drones for targeted strikes in Pakistan had been brought to light with the help of documents published by WikiLeaks.

Daniel Ellsberg, who leaked the Pentagon Papers about the Vietnam war, had also defended Assange, saying he had acted in the public interest, and warned he would not get a fair trial in the US.

Assange has been in custody in Britain since April 2019, when he was removed from the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he had taken refuge seven years previously to avoid extradition to Sweden over a sexual assault case that was subsequently dropped.

Edward Snowden says Julian Assange Could be Next After John McAfee Dies by Suicide in Jail


“Julian Is Suffering in Jail


Edward Snowden said he fears that Julian Assange 'could be next' if he faces extradition.

John McAfee died by apparent suicide on Wednesday. News had broken that he would be extradited to the US from Spain.

Business Insider 28 JUN 2021





"Europe should not extradite those accused of non-violent crimes to a court system so unfair," Snowden tweeted.


Former NSA consultant and data privacy advocate Edward Snowden tweeted on Wednesday that Julian Assange "could be next," after antivirus mogul John McAfee died by apparent suicide in a Barcelona prison cell following news that he was being extradited to the US on criminal tax evasion charges.

Spanish outlets broke the news of McAfee's death by suicide on Wednesday.

"Europe should not extradite those accused of non-violent crimes to a court system so unfair - and prison system so cruel - that native-born defendants would rather die than become subject to it. Julian Assange could be next," Snowden tweeted.

"Until the system is reformed, a moratorium should remain," he added.

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange was arrested in April 2019 in the United Kingdom, and a UK court temporarily blocked his extradition to the US in January 2021 on 18 charges, most through the Espionage Act, of obtaining and sharing classified information.

Movies Re: Julian Assange: Why is The US so Desperate to Extradite Him?

Who is Julian Assange and Why Does The US Want to Extradite Him?

BBC News 3 NOV 2021.


Julian Assange, the man behind Wikileaks, says he’s the victim of a US conspiracy to punish him for exposing alleged US war crimes.

Assange set up Wikileaks in 2006 to expose secrets that he, and others, thought should be exposed, including alleged US war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan. But the US says the leaks broke the law and endangered lives.

Assange had sought asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy in London to avoid deportation. He remained there for nearly 7 years until he was ejected and arrested.

A UK district judge blocked his extradition after his lawyer told the court that the risk of suicide would be "imminent the moment

extradition becomes likely". An appeal is now going to the British High Court where they will decide if he should face extradition to the USA.

Thumbs Up re: Julian Assange’s Extradition From UK to US Approved by UK Govt

Wikileaks: Julian Assange Given Permission to Marry Partner in Prison

Julian Assange has been granted permission to marry his partner Stella Moris in Belmarsh prison, the BBC has been told.

BBC News 12 NOV 2021





The Wikileaks founder and Ms Moris have two sons together, who she said were conceived while he was living inside London's Ecuadorean embassy.





The prison service said Mr Assange's application was "considered in the usual way by the prison governor".

Ms Moris told PA she was "relieved that reason [had] prevailed".

She added: "I hope there will be no further interference with our marriage."

Inmates are entitled to apply to be married in prison under the Marriages Act 1983 and where applications are granted, they must meet the full costs of the marriage, with no taxpayer help.

In an interview with the Mail on Sunday last year, Ms Moris, a South African-born lawyer, revealed that she had been in a relationship with Mr Assange since 2015 and had been raising their two young sons on her own.

In a video posted on Wikileaks' YouTube account, she said she had met Mr Assange in 2011 when she joined his legal team.

Ms Moris added that she had visited him in the embassy almost every day and had "got to know Julian very well".

The couple fell in love in 2015 and got engaged two years later.

Ms Moris said that Mr Assange had watched both boys being born via video link and they had visited their father at the embassy.

Mr Assange, 50, continues to fight extradition to the US on espionage charges.

He is wanted in the US on allegations of conspiracy to obtain and disclose national defence information, following Wikileaks' publication of hundreds of thousands of leaked documents relating to the Afghanistan and Iraq wars.

The publications include the release in April 2010 of footage showing US soldiers shooting and killing civilians from a helicopter in Iraq.

The Australian has been in Belmarsh Prison since 2019, when he was carried out of the Ecuadorian embassy in London by police and arrested for breaching his bail conditions.

He had been in the embassy since 2012, avoiding extradition to Sweden, where he faced sex offence allegations. He has always denied those and they were eventually dropped.

A Prison Service spokesperson said: "Mr Assange's application was received, considered and processed in the usual way by the prison governor, as for any other prisoner."

Julian Assange Can Be Extradited to The US, Court Rules

BBC News 12 Dec 2021


Wikileaks founder Julian Assange can be extradited from the UK to the US, the High Court in London has ruled.



The US won its appeal against a January UK court ruling that he could not be extradited due to concerns over his mental health.

Judges were reassured by US promises to reduce the risk of suicide. His fiancee said they intended to appeal.

Mr Assange is wanted in the US over the publication of thousands of classified documents in 2010 and 2011.

Senior judges found the lower judge had based her decision in January on the risk of Mr Assange being held in highly restrictive prison conditions if extradited.

However, the US authorities later gave assurances that he would not face those strictest measures unless he committed an act in the future that merited them.

Assange FIGHTS The FATAL Blow to Press Freedom

Julian Assange Can Appeal Extradition;

Stella Moris Blasts "Politically Motivated Prosecution"


AP, 26 JAN 2022.



A British judge has ruled that political dissident and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange can appeal his extradition to the United States. The ruling dealt a major blow to the Biden administration's efforts to put Assange on trial for espionage charges. Assange has spent over 1,000 days locked up in the Belmarsh high-security prison in London, where he recently suffered a mini-stroke.


The "politically driven" prosecution of Assange is punishing "a publisher for doing his work, for having published evidence of U.S. crimes," says Stella Moris, Assange's fiancée. "For every win that we get, Julian's situation doesn't change. And this is punishment through process."

Today the UK announced the Julian Assange has won the right to appeal his extradition to the USA.


Assange's brother, Gabriel Shipton, reveals the full story of government corruption, assassination attempts, and why this case sets the most dangerous precedent for freedom of the press of our lifetime.




"The national security state doesn't want its secrets exposed. They're using the espionage act to clamp down on publishers. They're afraid of leaks. They're afraid of being surveilled. ... Julian turned the lens of surveillance back around onto them. ... They want Julian dead. ... There's a worldwide movement of people who see this case for what it is.


It's the criminalization of telling the truth - the criminalization of journalism. ...

He's my hero actually. But he's also my brother."

Julian Assange’s Extradition From UK to US Approved by Home Secretary

UK government approved extradition of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to the US

Appeal likely after Priti Patel gives green light to extradition of WikiLeaks co-founder


The Guardian UK 18 JUN 2022








Julian Assange’s extradition from UK to US approved by home secretary

Appeal likely after Priti Patel gives green light to extradition of WikiLeaks co-founder








‘We’re going to fight’: Julian Assange’s wife addresses US extradition



Priti Patel has approved the extradition of the WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange to the US, a decision the organisation immediately said it would appeal against in the high court.

The case passed to the British home secretary last month after the UK supreme court ruled that there were no legal questions over assurances given by US authorities on Assange’s likely treatment.

While Patel has given the green light, WikiLeaks immediately released a statement to say it would appeal against the decision. “Today is not the end of the fight,” it said. “It is only the beginning of a new legal battle. We will appeal through the legal system; the next appeal will be before the high court.”

The statement said anyone who cared about freedom of expression should be “deeply ashamed” that the home secretary had approved Assange’s extradition.

“Julian did nothing wrong. He has committed no crime and is not a criminal. He is a journalist and a publisher and he is being punished for doing his job,” it said. “It was in Priti Patel’s power to do the right thing. Instead she will for ever be remembered as an accomplice of the United States in its agenda to turn investigative journalism into a criminal enterprise.”

Any appeal is likely to focus on grounds such as the right to freedom of expression and whether the extradition request is politically motivated. Patel had been considering whether the US extradition request met remaining legal tests, including a promise not to execute him.

Assange is being held at Belmarsh prison in London after a lengthy battle to avoid extradition. At a press conference in London, his wife, Stella Assange, said: “We are not at the end of the road here. We are going to fight this. We are going to use every available avenue. I’m going to use every waking hour fighting for Julian until he is free, until justice is served.”


The saga was triggered in 2010 when WikiLeaks published a series of leaks provided by the then US army soldier Chelsea Manning, as well as a dump of more than 250,000 US diplomatic cables, some of which were published in the Guardian and elsewhere, containing classified diplomatic analysis from world leaders. The US government launched a criminal investigation into the leaks.

Also in 2010, an arrest warrant for Assange was issued for two separate sexual assault allegations in Sweden. The UK ruled that he should be extradited to Sweden. This prompted him to enter the Ecuadorian embassy in London in August 2012, claiming political asylum. He feared that if he was extradited to Sweden he would in turn be extradited to the US.

Assange finally left the embassy in 2019. He was arrested in the UK for skipping bail and ultimately jailed, then extradition proceedings to the US were started against him.

Assange’s brother said on Friday that the appeal would include new information not previously taken to the courts, including claims made in a report last year of plans to assassinate him.

“It will likely be a few days before the [14-day appeal] deadline and the appeal will include new information … on how Julian’s lawyers were spied on, and how there were plots to kidnap and kill Julian from within the CIA,” Gabriel Shipton told Reuters in an interview.

Patel’s decision was met with immediate criticism from campaigners, journalists and MPs. Caroline Lucas, the Green party MP for Brighton Pavilion, said: “Absolutely shameful that Priti Patel has approved Julian Assange’s extradition to US – this sets a dangerous precedent for press freedom and democracy. US authorities are determined to silence him because they don’t like what he revealed.”

The former cabinet minister David Davis said: “Sadly, I do not believe Mr Assange will get a fair trial. This extradition treaty needs to be rewritten to give British and American citizens identical rights, unlike now.”

The veteran BBC broadcaster John Simpson said: “Journalists in Britain and elsewhere will be very worried by the decision to extradite Julian Assange to the US – both for his own wellbeing and for the precedent it creates for journalism worldwide.”

John Pilger, a journalist and longtime supporter of Assange and a fellow Australian, said: “A new appeal will challenge the political rottenness of British ‘justice’.”




The new Australian government said it believed Assange’s case had “dragged on for too long and that it should be brought to a close”. “We will continue to express this view to the governments of the United Kingdom and the United States,” the foreign affairs minister, Penny Wong, and the attorney general, Mark Dreyfus, said in a statement responding to Patel’s decision.

The prime minister, Anthony Albanese, had said last year, when he was the opposition leader, that he did “not see what purpose is served by the ongoing pursuit of Mr Assange” and that “enough is enough”.




A Home Office spokesperson said: “On 17 June, following consideration by both the magistrates court and high court, the extradition of Mr Julian Assange to the US was ordered. Mr Assange retains the normal 14-day right to appeal.

“In this case, the UK courts have not found that it would be oppressive, unjust or an abuse of process to extradite Mr Assange.

“Nor have they found that extradition would be incompatible with his human rights, including his right to a fair trial and to freedom of expression, and that whilst in the US he will be treated appropriately, including in relation to his health.”
