    Wikileaks founder accused of rape

    Wikileaks founder Julian Assange accused of rape


    Julian Assange was cited as saying the release of the allegations was "deeply disturbing"


    Swedish authorities say they have issued an arrest warrant for Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, on accusations of rape and molestation.

    The warrant was issued late on Friday, said Karin Rosander, communications head at Sweden's prosecutors' office.

    Swedish police have been trying to contact Mr Assange, but have not yet been able to, she told the BBC.

    Wikileaks, criticised for leaking Afghan war documents, quoted him saying the charges were "without basis".

    The message, which appeared on Twitter and was attributed directly to Mr Assange, said the appearance of the allegations "at this moment is deeply disturbing".

    In a series of other messages posted on the Wikileaks Twitter feed, the whistle-blowing website said: "No-one here has been contacted by Swedish police", and that it had been warned to expect "dirty tricks".

    More documents due Last month, Wikileaks published more than 75,000 secret US military documents on the war in Afghanistan.

    US authorities criticised the leak, saying it could put the lives of coalition soldiers and Afghans, especially informers, at risk.

    Mr Assange has said that Wikileaks is intending to release a further 15,000 documents in the coming weeks.

    Ms Rosander said there were two separate allegations against Mr Assange, one of rape and the other of molestation.

    She gave no details of the accusations. She said that as far as she knew they related to alleged incidents that took place in Sweden.

    Media reports say Mr Assange was in Sweden last week to talk about his work and defend the decision by Wikileaks to publish the Afghan war logs.

    The allegations were first reported in the Swedish newspaper Expressen.

    Yeah, definitely a set-up. Better to discredit him than assassinate.

    Is there any level of evil the American Government will not resort to? More and more, it's getting obvious or only thinly disguised. I'm glad I'm 52 years old and have enjoyed most of my life because the direction this planet is going sucks.

    ^^My thoughts too, if it is a CIA set up the victim will probably be a 15 year old boy, that'll teach him to mess with the US of A

    The thinly veiled apologists venue is becoming more difficult to hide behind, is it not?

    He's actually a fool to have put himself in the position he is in. Sure there are many people who know this is bogus and will feel pity for him, but there is nothing anyone can do, at least not anyone who would want to. Only the most retarded Fox News Watchers will believe this nonsense, but they still think Iraq had WMD's.

    That's right! That horrid Bush is at it again! Too funny. Immediate response here is that bladdy USA is at it again.

    Dunno, Sweden let the guy use its country as a base for his ant-US activities. Would they let the USA trundle their ground and force their police and justice system to do America's bidding? Bunch of left-wing responses here. You better ring that commie guy who occupies the White House now...you know, the one Y'All love, obama...oh, but he's on the golf course now in Martha's Vineyard.

    Don't be so ridiculous, America has already won the war on terror in Iraq, it was on the news a couple of years ago, Bush on some boat announced it, they have nothing to fear now if their names are known.

    Not sure. If they fired a bunker busting missile at their own Pentagon, killing hundreds of people there, then that would be pretty evil..

    Wow, some of you guys are incredibly biased and ignorant. How would a rape charge shut down wikileaks? The site is still going to be running. This fellow was just a figurehead and there is a whole group involved at wikileaks. It's not just one alleged charge of molestation. It's two seperate people and apparently there are other women out there as well. ok?
    Why would the Swedish authorities make up the charges? Sweden is hardly a strong ally of the USA. If you believe the charges are bogus, then explain why? You haven't seen the evidence have you? If one reads the full story, the Swedish police tried to get a statement from him for some time, but the guy apparently ran off. Maybe if he steps up to answer the allegations, he can clear the air. I wonder if wikileaks will publish the charges and the courtroom evidence, or will wikileaks practice selective censorship?

    This isn't the first time someone with an inflated sense of self importance self destructed. Mel Gibson thought he was untouchable. George Michael thought his celebrity status was going to protect him but he still got nicked for drink & drive didn't he? There's that US Republican senator that carried on about how important he was, but the coppers caught him for the bathroom homo sex caper didn't they?
    Kindness is spaying and neutering one's companion animals.

    Where does it say 2 separate people? It does say 2 charges I agree, but it doesn't say 2 separate people.
