‘Assange won’t come’: Swedish MPs urge end to whistleblower case

05.02.2014 06:10

Swedish MPs are calling on the prosecutors in the Julian Assange sexual assault case to travel to London and question the WikiLeaks founder at the Ecuadorian embassy, where he has been taking refuge since June 2012.

I believe that Sweden is another American lickers and if they say anything for them to approve on they say yes yes yes

There were no accusations against Assange until investigators went on a background witch hunt with EVERYBODY he had ever had any contact with. There will obviously be some form of payment that has taken place to manufacture these accusations. If they can throw away $5 billion in Ukraine they can throw some money at people here.

If what was said in those text messages is true, then those women really need to speak out against the supposed charges. Accusations of rape should never be used by anyone falsely, but the case would fall apart if they went public.

However although I am clearly a silly foolish person, I'd like to suggest that if helpful documents to my country which are difficult to approach are referred to amongst this readable type of article they will be more approachable to people than if they are presented as heavy copious amounts of leaked material. -Mel

I really like this article. I think that Julian has a head and also I have head which is why I can declare that all of the accusations against Julian Assange that have been made on the grounds that he is a pervert appear to be trumped up horseshit. As far as I know he is a gentleman unlike some others. There is certainly hope for his journalism and fancy beard.
Red october, stop wingeing, you don't even speak english, also, Blackberry your point about Marianne is very funny. Unfortunately for that strategy assassination is only legal in a few countries. You need countries with more s's for that.

If the Swedish prosecutors actually had the interests of the "victims" in mind and believed that the charges had some foundation, they would have traveled to London a long time ago to not drag this case out for years. Stubbornly prolonging the victim's "suffering" ; for all this time does not help anyone, and only confirms the belief that this is a politically charged circus.

" " “The fact that an MP openly questions a prosecutor’s decision-making in an individual case is remarkable,” he said.

The MP is no questioning the prosecutor's decision-making. The MP is questioning the prosecutor's failre to make a decision. What use is a prosecutor who doesn't mnake decisions?! He is not saying which decision to make, he is saying +make a darned decision for gosh sakes!+ That is a world of difference.

This case all boils down to a personal vendetta by Swedish prosecutor Marianne Ny. I'm surprised someone doesn't just take her out.

Call me a cheapskate, but I think it is unconscionable for governments to waste 6 million pounds per year when they could question Assange for the price of a plane ticket.

It reminds me of the fable about Mohammed and the mountain: If governments were in charge, they would move the mountain to Mohammed instead of moving Mohammed to the mountain.

However, Anders Perklev, the Swedish prosecutor-general, was convinced the lawmakers are interfering with the judicial matters.

The fact that an MP openly questions a prosecutor’s decision-making in an individual case is remarkable,” he said.

So if Anders has such a sense of what is remarkable and what is not then i would like to know what word he would use to describe his opinion of the JA case.

The word suspicious comes to my mind.
Suspicious why the prosecutor has not done more to free Assange. eg an statement that there would be no extradition to the US or anything else to prevent JA staying with Manning

The Wikileaks case is very different from the Snowden for obvious reasons. By releasing cables of US embassies like Tunisia the consequences were dramatic with their dictator run out of town with his gold.

Julia n Assange as a journalist gave the world a glimpse of US foreign policy courtesy of the Bradley Manning files. Granted this was a crime....but the information proved that the West has become detached from reality and corrupted to an extent that nobody in power will now admit.

  


So what is the difference ? Both occasions exposed the corruption of the gvmt

Sweden has a history of sucking the US's backside. They were well-known for their participation in the illegal extraordinary renditions of the Bush period.

Most people here want Assange to go free unconditionally. No amount of reason will change their minds. They have deicided that because the USA doesnt like him, hes now a hero

  


The US is a despicable regime that feeds off dopes like you.

Julian Assange is a hero.

Edwar d Snowden is a hero

And Chelsea Manning is a hero

You pal haven't got the guts to stand up to your own government because you are a coward.

You are an extremist left winger who hates extremist right wingers. You are part of the problem, and essentially validate your enemies actions with your accusations and propaganda.

[quote name='Freaky' time='05.02.2014 23:42']I discover that news is not news, but is biased those day's
the government repeat lies/quote]

Try to find how many comments here are biased. How many here are objective and give both sides a fair view?

Pratically none. Most people here want Assange to go free unconditionally. No amount of reason will change their minds. They have deicided that because the USA doesnt like him, hes now a hero, and permitted to do anything he wants (including 2 cases of se(x)ual assault)

Bi as works both ways you know. The comments on this site pratically keep the NSA in busniess.

I wonder how many rapists can be held in the Ecuadorian embassy.

  

Only Americans are to be brought to justice. Everyone else is exempt from the rule of law it seems.

Honestly though, its alright. If they wont put Assange on trial, they can forget about EVER seeing anyone stand any kind of trial for Iraq.

Since the rule is now "he gets away with is cause we dont like his accusers", then prettymuch every US warcrime of the 2000s is to go unpunished.
