Default The Wikileaks sex files: How two one-night stands sparked a worldwide hunt for Julian

Does anyone here besides me think that all this smells of heavy BS? What are the chances that one of the most sought-after men by the US government, and probably other governments around the world, just happened to be wanted in Sweden for sex crime allegations, all in the same time frame that he realeased secret documents which could alter geopolitical alliances? It doesn't add up imo. Call me cynical.

Otoh, who will buy the movie rights?

Quote:
A winter morning in backwoods Scandinavia and the chime of a church bell drifts across the snowbound town of Enkoping. Does it also toll for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange?
Today, this small industrial centre, 40 miles west of Stockholm, remains best-known — if known at all — as the birthplace of the *adjustable spanner.
But if extradition proceedings involving *Britain are successful, it could soon be rather more celebrated — by the U.S. government at least — as the place where Mr Assange made a *catastrophic error.

Here, in a first-floor flat in a dreary apartment block, the mastermind behind the leak of more than 250,000 classified U.S. diplomatic cables this month slept with a female admirer whom he had just met at a seminar. She subsequently made a complaint to police.
As a result, Assange, believed to be in hiding in England, faces a criminal prosecution and *possibly jail. Last night, a European Arrest *Warrant was given by Interpol to Scotland Yard.

The Stockholm police want to question him regarding the possible rape of a woman and separate allegations from another Swedish admirer, with whom he was having a concurrent fling. But there remains a huge question mark over the evidence. Many people believe that the 39-year-old *Australian-born whistleblower is the victim of a U.S. government dirty tricks campaign.




Quote:
Yesterday, his lawyer Mark Stephens said the Swedish warrant was a ‘political stunt’ and that he would fight it on the grounds that it could lead to the WikiLeaks founder being handed over to the American authorities (Sweden has an *extradition treaty with the U.S.).

He is responsible for an avalanche of political leaks. Whether he is also guilty of sexual offences remains to be seen. But the more one learns about the case, the allegations simply don't ring true

From what I've heard, neither woman filed charges until they found out about the other woman.

From the article,
Quote:
At the time, however, the pair *continued to be friendly enough the next day, a Saturday, with Sarah even throwing a party for him at her home in the evening
Quote:
What’s more, the following morning, on the Tuesday, the pair amicably went out to have breakfast together and, at her prompting, Assange promised to stay in touch. He then returned to Stockholm, with Jessica again paying for his ticket.

Sounds very reminiscent of Al Capone. Get him on whatever you can, just get him off the streets.

The story sounds bogus to me. Looks like he's being framed.

I'm wondering if he was set-up by friends and associates in order to give him a distraction from the Wikileaks ordeal, and to give him safe haven in jail. Sounds weird, but if I were in his shoes, I'd be pretty afraid of getting hit by a car or just disappearing mysteriously. Could anyone really have been stupid enough to think that dropping the Wikileaks bombshells wouldn't be a dangerous endeavor?
