Assange in Sweden

Assange: Case Closed

Reprinted from Rixstep. So Julian Assange finally got to submit his statement to the elusive Marianne Ny. Things rolled pretty fast there for a while – it took only 74 months. But now it’s been done. Sabotaged at the last minute again by the bizarre Gothenburg prosecutor who deigned to reopen an investigation that had […]

UN rejects UK appeal on Assange

30 November 2016: Today, the United Nations rejected the United Kingdom’s attempt to appeal the UN’s February ruling in favour of Julian Assange. The decision of 5 February 2016 therefore stands, and the UK and Sweden are once again required to immediately put an end to Mr Assange’s arbitrary detention and afford him monetary compensation.

Black Friday

16 September 2016: a black Friday. Lauri Love lost in his struggle to stop his current extradition process, and Julian Assange lost in his appeal to quash Marianne Ny’s arrest warrant. The forces of light have been defeated by the forces of darkness, at least for now. Both Love and Assange will appeal today’s rulings. […]

December 10, 2015: The Silence

A week Saturday it will be two months since Stefania Maurizi released the FOI documents that turned the case of Assange in Sweden on its head – or more accurately: put it out of its misery, once and for all. Stefania’s documents showed, in black on white, beyond a shadow of doubt, that Sweden’s chief […]

Common with Interrogations Abroad

From Sweden’s Journalisten (The Journalist) 9 November 2015. Swedish prosecutors have for several years refused to interview Julian Assange in Great Britain. They’ve claimed that ‘it’s uncommon for Swedish prosecutors to interview suspects abroad’. The Journalist can today show that this is a misleading claim.
