As Scots headed to polls in a bid for independence from Britain, the SNP had every right to be paranoid that they were all monitored by UK intelligence services, as the referendum constituted a “national security threat” to the UK, says Julian Assange.
While the 2013 operation to evacuate whistleblower Edward Snowden from Hong Kong, where he faced impending arrest, involved a degree of subterfuge, no Chinese or Russian intelligence agents were involved in it, WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange said.
Julian Assange has given an interview to an Argentinian paper from his Ecuadorian embassy asylum where he spent more than 1,000 days. He spoke about why US meddling in Ukraine led to civil war, how the West helped ISIS and Israel supported Hamas.
It has been exactly 1,000 days since whistleblower Julian Assange was forced to hide out at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where outside powers can’t prosecute him. Supporters are holding a vigil for the WikiLeaks founder today.
Documents pertaining to the United States government’s probe of WikiLeaks can stay secret, a federal judge has ruled, because disclosures could compromise the Justice Department’s still ongoing investigation of the antisecrecy organization.
Hundreds of days of the WikiLeaks founder’s drawn-out extradition case have become commonly regarded as a “circus” and a “mess,” spokesperson for the organization Kristinn Hrafnsson told RT, as Julian Assange has appealed to the Swedish Supreme Court.
The whistleblowing website has learned that Google handed over to US authorities the digital correspondence and other data from three of its employees on suspected espionage-related charges related to the Chelsea Manning case.
The charges against journalist and activist Barrett Brown, accused of threatening an FBI agent, are partially based on his quoting another person’s threat to assassinate the WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange said.
