Right - only wants to be subjected to another media circus that HE will orchestrate. I see.
Swedish prosecuters plan to issue an international arrest warrant for Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, after a court today approved their request to detain him over rape and molestation allegations. Director of Public Prosecution Marianne Ny said she will seek his arrest via Interpol, AP reports. Assange again denied the …
Thats what the Military Indutsrial complex wants, ie to keep the arms trade going. He is a thorn in the u know where. Rubbed up the Pentagon the wrong way with his wikileaks. They will get him in the end and I do indeed fear for this witch hunt.
He should be offered protection by the authorities, at our cost. That would be money well spent.
Wonder who is financing the Swedish warrants!
Mines the bulletproof one, hence forth.
The Swedish sex stuff is just a trick by the Penta-gone military industrial complex to ensnare him so that he is discredited and people lose trust in Wikileaks. The ruling classes don't like it when their lies are exposed so Julian must be discredited at all costs otherwise arms profits will suffer. Look what happened to Lady Diana after her landmine work.
I can only find a Goooogle cache from early this morning, every other attempt - via argentinian or german IPs gets me a (randomly named) "XvdfU4Rs.dms.part" instead of an index page. well they did say that there would be a new release of blurb - looks likeI'll have to start reading the Grauniad again
Julian Assange has all but lost his fight against extradition from Britain to America after the UK Supreme Court said his case "did not raise an arguable point of law."
The former WikiLeaks chief's future now rests in the tender hands of British Home Secretary Priti Patel, who must formally decide whether or not to extradite him for trial in the US.
American prosecutors want the Australian in court over a multitude of espionage charges, including one alleging that he commissioned the cracking of a password protecting US Department of Defense files from unauthorized access.
Julian Assange has won a technical victory in his ongoing battle against extradition from the UK to the United States, buying him a few more months in the relative safety of Her Majesty's Prison Belmarsh.
Today at London's High Court, the Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales Lord Burnett approved a question on a technical point of law, having refused Assange immediate permission to appeal to the UK Supreme Court. The WikiLeaker's lawyers had asked for formal permission to pose this legal conundrum about Assange's likely treatment in US prisons to the Supreme Court:
Julian Assange's psychiatrist misled a judge when he delivered a report stating the WikiLeaks founder would be suicidal if extradited to the US for trial, lawyers for the US government have said.
Barrister James Lewis QC told the Lord Chief Justice yesterday that crucial reports were flawed because it did not clearly state that Assange had fathered two children while hiding in Ecuador's London embassy.
The WikiLeaker-in-chief is wanted in the US. He stands accused of hacking into US military databases and publishing classified docs. Although he won an initial legal bid to avoid extradition, the sole reason District Judge Vanessa Baraitser did not extradite him was because he would be suicidal if sent abroad. At the time the judge described that as "a well-informed opinion carefully supported by evidence."
An autonomous drone carrying a defibrillator helped save a 71-year-old man having a heart attack, a first in medical history, a Swedish search-and-rescue tech company has claimed.
We're told the old boy was clearing snow from his driveway in Trollhättan, Sweden, on the morning of December 9 before he was struck by crippling pains in his chest. A doctor just happened to be driving by on his way to work, saw what was happening, stopped, got out, and told an onlooker to call the emergency services while he performed CPR on the unnamed heart-attack victim.
Apparently, it took just over three minutes for a drone, built and operated by Askim-based Everdrone, to be dispatched and arrive carrying an automated external defibrillator (AED). The doctor, named as Mustafa Ali by Everdrone, used the equipment to keep the guy alive at least until an ambulance arrived. The victim is said to have fully recovered in hospital.
Julian Assange will be sent stateside for trial on criminal charges after the US government won an appeal against an earlier court order that released him from the threat of extradition.
The former WikiLeaks editor-in-chief lost the latest stage of his attempt to avoid being sent to the US after the Lord Chief Justice and Lord Justice Holroyde accepted US assurances that he would be treated humanely in their prisons.
The High Court has quashed a previous court order "freeing" Assange*, meaning the case will now join the growing pile on Home Secretary Priti Patel's desk awaiting her decision on whether to extradite.
Some traditions ought to be set on fire, but sadly for Sweden's Gävlebocken – a giant Yule goat made of straw – setting fire to traditions has become a tradition in itself.
After five arson-free Christmases, the goat succumbed in the early hours of 17 December and a man in his 40s was arrested, Reuters reports, despite efforts by the city of Gävle to develop a flame-retardant idol.
The goat was first erected in the town square in December 1966. It burned down on New Year's Eve thus beginning a glorious (and illegal) tradition. Gävlebocken has since been engulfed by flames at least 35 times.
Analysis Julian Assange has lost a legal scrap in court, this time over the US government's attempt to expand its grounds for extraditing him from England to stand trial in America.
Lord Justice Holroyde, sitting with Mrs Justice Farbey in London's High Court, this week overruled previous legal findings that said an expert report from Assange's psychiatrist claiming the WikiLeaker was suicidal at the prospect of trial in the United States could not be challenged on appeal. That decision, made after a pre-hearing application by the US government ahead of a full appeal scheduled later this year, is bad news for Assange's camp.
Julian Assange will remain in a British prison for now after the US government won permission to appeal against a January court ruling that freed him from extradition to America.
News of the appeal came as the US Department of Justice offered Assange a deal that would keep him out of the notoriously cruel US supermax prisons, according to The Times.
The High Court this morning granted the US permission to appeal against a ruling by Westminster Magistrates' Court that Assange couldn't be extradited because he would commit suicide if handed over to the Americans. The WikiLeaker-in-chief's legal team lost on every other legal ground against extradition.
Accused hacker and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange should not be extradited to the US to stand trial, Westminster Magistrates' Court has ruled.
District Judge Vanessa Baraitser told Assange this morning that there was no legal obstacle to his being sent to the US, where he faces multiple criminal charges under America's Espionage Act and Computer Fraud and Abuse Act over his WikiLeaks website.
Assange is a suicide risk and the judge decided not to order his extradition to the US, despite giving a ruling in which she demolished all of his legal team's other arguments against extradition.
Former couch-surfing world record contender Julian Assange has had his Ecuadorian citizenship revoked.
An administrative court in Quito, Ecuador cited irregularities in the naturalization process – including the use of different signatures, potential document alterations, failure to pay fees, and a failure to reside in the country – as reasons the grant of citizenship was invalid. The court also assessed Assange's application interview as "undue and illegal".
Assange was notified he had lost his citizenship in a letter responding to a claim from Ecuador's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Human Mobility. His less than happy lawyer, Carlos Poveda, said he will file for an annulment of the decision.
