Assange in Sweden

‘Promptly’?

By Planboksbok at the Flashback forum. Now, as our thread runs in low gear through the holiday season, and as our aces at the offices of the country’s prosecution authority hopefully get their act together and undertake their intrepid journey to faraway London to interrogate Julian Assange, perhaps we have some time to reflect on […]

‘Nothing surprises me anymore’

An interview with the original attorney for Julian Assange 1 September 2010. ‘Nothing about this case surprises me anymore.

Leif Silbersky, Sweden’s most renowned attorney, says […]

Statement by JULIAN ASSANGE upon hearing the expiry of 3 allegations

I am extremely disappointed. There was no need for any of this. I am an innocent man. I haven’t even been charged. From the beginning I offered a simple solution. Come to the embassy to take my statement or promise not to send me to the United States. This Swedish official refused both. She even […]

Statement by Julian Assange Legal Defence Committee

Assange has not been charged in Sweden or the UK. The US Department of Justice is trying to prosecute him for ‘espionage’. This is the reason he was given asylum by Ecuador.

Five Minutes to Midnight for Marianne Ny in the Land of the Midnight Sun

Time is running out for Marianne Ny. Sweden’s erratic prosecutor waited nearly five years to interrogate Julian Assange until a Swedish court scolded her, and now, through her own bloopers, can’t even effect an interrogation at the last minute. Her initial plan was to have Ingrid Isgren at the Ecuador embassy in June, but as […]

Prosecutor cancels Assange meeting

I have now been detained without charge for 1650 days. This afternoon, the Swedish prosecutor Marianne Ny cancelled a prospective appointment to take my statement today. We proposed the dates and Ny accepted them. Prosecutor Ny led my lawyers to believe that the appointment was proceeding. My lawyers had booked tickets and I have been […]
