    Julian Assange Wins Round 2

    Julian Assange, still in the Ecuador Embassy in London, has been informed that a request to question him at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London was filed under a bilateral Sweden-Ecuador agreement on legal cooperation, signed in late 2015.




    "STOCKHOLM (Sputnik) — The Swedish prosecutor's office has filed a request with the state prosecutor's office in Ecuador for permission to question the WikiLeaks whistleblowing website founder, Julian Assange, at the Ecuador Embassy in London, Swedish prosecutors said in a statement Wednesday."

    Assange has, since he entered the embassy, always agreed to be questioned on the alleged rape charges. The Swedes have taken some time in accepting this, but now they have climbed down from their high horse.

    One hopes the questions and answers from the meeting will be published.

    I reckon Assange will make sure the whole saga is recorded and published online, for the whole world to see. Out of curiosity, I looked into the allegations of sexual misconduct made against him, which appeared to me to have no substance whatsoever !

    Real justice will prevail as it applies to the invented and bogus charges.

    Yet, Mr. Assange will always be an enemy of the state.

    Round three goes to Assange and his corner man the Ecuador Ambassadoor.

    The Swedes have to re-submit their interview request and the questioner will be an Ecuador citizen who will ask the questions submitted by the Swedish authorities in advance.

    "The Prosecutor-General informed Sweden in a letter that Ecuador would be the one interrogating Assange. He also requested a list of questions Sweden wants Ecuador to ask the Wikileaks founder. The format was a part of a bilateral agreement signed last month, which stipulated that Sweden would provide the questions and Ecuador would conduct the interview."

    Of course it will all be cleared, he'll walk out a free man, and they'll extradite him for some littering offence he committed in bongo bongo land in the 90s.

    He requires a secure safe house.
    Not much of a life, huh?

    Even acquitted or free to roam - the hidden power establishment will seek him out and continue to do their dirty work worldwide.

    A request from John Pilger,




    an Australian journalist to his Prime Minister, a Mr. Turnbull,



    To stand up for his countryman and "quote the judgment of the UN Working Party on Arbitrary Detention. Which has ruled that Julian Assange has been detained unlawfully by Britain and Sweden" and recently announced on a certain Mr. Assange whilst "attending an international conference on Syria hosted the Cameron government – about 15 minutes' cab ride from the room that Julian Assange has occupied for three and a half years in the small Ecuadorean embassy just along from Harrods."

    https://www.rt.com/op-edge/331328-fr...e-john-pilger/

    If Turnbull had any balls he would then call in, at the Ecuadorean Embassy, for a cuppa, with the said Mr. Assange.

    Don't hold your breath.

    Oh, both utilise the UN and UNSC selectively. It is of course their "exceptional" right to "probably" agree "occasionally".

    Shows you the way our world, and our 'Rights', have gone though doesn't it? Here is an Australian citizen granted political asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London UK, who has been held largely incommunicado there for upwards of three years, and subject to 24/7 surveillance. Extradition request made from lapdog Sweden on the basis of a broken condom during consensual sex.

    Of course, but does he have a ticking bomb awaiting to detonate unless he resets the clock, periodically? Wouldn't you in his place?

    It's just bollocks, isn't it?

    He isn't detained at all, he can walk out any time he likes.

    But they'll nab him.

    What a ridiculous and pointless waste of UN money.

    the headline says it all.

    hes a seedy and cowardly piece of shite.


    Julian Assange is nothing but a seedy egomaniac who believes himself to be above the law

    By Joan Smith, chair of the mayor of london's violence against women and girls panel, London

    Men who are accused of rape are often scared, furious or both. Going through a police investigation is an unpleasant experience, but some allegations are so serious that they need to be tested by the criminal justice system.

    The same rules apply to everybody, whether they are an ordinary citizen or a global celebrity – and that’s the inconvenient fact that the WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is frantically trying to obscure.

    Assange’s latest wheeze – asking a UN panel to declare that he’s been ‘arbitrarily detained’ in the Ecuadorian embassy since 2012 – would be hilarious if there weren’t so many gullible people who will see it as a vindication of their hero’s desperate attempts to escape political persecution.

    The BBC is reporting that the UN’s Working Group on Arbitrary Detention will rule in favour of Assange when it announces its decision tomorrow, a development which – if the reports are true – will make it a laughing stock.

    Assange chose to knock on the door of the Ecuadorian embassy of his own free will, begging to be allowed inside because he’d lost his case to avoid extradition to Sweden.

    It wasn’t just that he’d lost, either; he lost spectacularly at every English court he went to, including the Supreme Court.

    That’s the highest court in the land, and not known for being a patsy of the ‘dark forces’ supposedly conspiring to destroy the Australian campaigner for truth, transparency and international justice.


    If Assange really is a campaigner for all those things, he needs to explain why the basic legal processes that apply to the rest of us should be waived for him. It’s now more than five years since two Swedish women – both of them, as it happens, supporters of WikiLeaks – made serious allegations against him.

    To be clear (and because it’s sometimes denied by his more irrational supporters), those accusations included a count of rape as well one of unlawful coercion and two of sexual molestation.

    Assange has now spent so much time hiding from justice (costing us the British taxpayer more than £12 million) that the statute of limitations on the lesser charges has run out. His problem, and the most likely reason he has dragged the UN into his deluded crusade, is that the rape investigation is still going on and will remain live until 2020.

    It’s worth recalling that Assange was first interviewed by the Swedish police in August 2010. He left the country shortly afterwards and has refused to go back for further questioning.

    If the accusations are as flimsy as he insists, it’s difficult to see why he didn’t return, confident that he would be able to provide satisfactory answers.

    Other famous men have had to go through similar processes, including the comedian Bill Cosby who has just been told that prosecutors in the US can proceed with a sexual assault charge dating back to 2004.

    Assange has tried every legal avenue and some pretty outlandish ones to avoid the citizen’s basic duty of helping the police with their inquiries. His alleged victims, meanwhile, have been left in legal limbo.

    They’ve also been subjected to out-and-out character assassination, including baseless allegations that Assange is the victim of a ‘honey trap’.

    Assange and his supporters have repeatedly claimed that there is a conspiracy to lure him back to Sweden and extradite him to the US, where he would face trial for leaking state secrets.

    They have never explained why it is necessary to do this, given that it would actually be easier for the US to extradite Assange from the UK than Sweden, which prohibits extradition on the basis of a ‘political offence’. (Remember all those angry headlines about the UK’s one-sided extradition treaty with the US?)

    But Assange is such a charismatic individual, in some quarters at least, that his fans would rather believe almost anything than the sordid truth.

    Assange is a fugitive from justice, a man with such an inflated ego that he believes himself beyond the law.

    It is almost four years since the Supreme Court upheld a European Arrest Warrant issued by the Swedish authorities, and the British police have a duty to arrest him if he steps outside the embassy.

    Every move he makes, no matter how bizarre, is calculated to do one thing, which is to create a smokescreen over these awkward facts.

    Claims of a ‘honey trap’, the flight to the Ecuadorean embassy, this latest appeal to a UN body: They’re all part of the same process.

    Assange understands the value of publicity, using the language of human rights and persecution to bolster his own personal myth.

    But behind each step is an increasingly seedy individual who is seeking immunity from the criminal justice systems of two democratic countries.

    Per the title of the thread, I fail to see where he has 'won' anything.

    The UN is an outdated, useless concept, which caries as much weight as the laughable Nobel Peace Prize or the World Court. Nobody cares what they think.

    He is still cowering in a Third World Embassy, desperate to avoid his day in court.

    If he comes out, he will go to the UK to be tried for rape.

    Win? I think not.

    Well technically he'll be in the clear in 2020 when the statue of limitations runs out on the rape charge.
