WAYS OF SORRY SWEDEN
By Peter Kemp, Solicitor of the Supreme Court of New South Wales, on 2010-12-04
join with Professor Saul also in asking you Prime Minister why has
there been no public complaint to the US about both Secretaries of State
Condaleeza Rice and Hillary Clinton being in major breach of
International law ie UN Covenants, by making orders to spy on UN
personnel, including the Secretary General, to include theft of their
credit card details and communication passwords. Perhaps the Attorney
General should investigate this clear prima facie evidence of crime
(likely against Australian diplomats as well), rather than he attempts
to prosecute the messenger of those crimes.
It is also
disturbing that no Australian official has castigated Sweden for the
shameful treatment Mr Assange has received ie his human rights abused,
in that he has not been charged and served with papers in the English
language regarding the evidence against him of alleged sexual offences.
This is contrary to Article 6 of the European Covenant on Human Rights
to which Sweden is a signatory nation.
Those offences remain
unclear and the Swedish prosecutor Ms Ny appears to be making up the law
as she wants. It appears now, by Ms Ny's interpretation that when
consensual sex occurs but if a condom breaks, the male party is liable
to 2 years imprisonment for sexual assault. All this information is publicly available.
Australian citizen is apparently being singled out for "special
treatment" Prime Minister. There are legitimate concerns among citizens
here that his treatment by the Swedes is connected to US interests which
are against the activities of Wikileaks, and you will note the
strident, outrageous (and illegal) calls inciting violence against him
in the US in demands for his assassination, by senior influential US
My warm greetings to the most intelligent Ms Ny from sorry Sweden.
and WAYS OF A SUPER POWER
Have you expected this level of impact all over the world? Do you fear for your security?
always believed that WikiLeaks as a concept would perform a global role
and to some degree it was clear that is was doing that as far back as
2007 when it changed the result of the Kenyan general election. I
thought it would take two years instead of four to be recognised by
others as having this important role, so we are still a little behind
schedule and have much more work to do. The threats against our lives
are a matter of public record, however, we are taking the appropriate
precautions to the degree that we are able when dealing with a super

adviser to Canadian Prime Minister recently stated "I think Assange
should be assassinated ... I think Obama should put out a contract ... I
wouldn't feel unhappy if Assange does disappear."
How do you feel about this?
is correct that Mr. Flanagan and the others seriously making these
statements should be charged with incitement to commit murder."
the game that you are caught up in winnable? Technically, can you keep
playing hide and seek with the powers that be when services and service
providers are directly or indirectly under government control or
vulnerable to pressure - like Amazon?
Also, if you get "taken out" -
and that could be technical, not necessarily physical - what are the
alternatives for your cache of material?
Is there a 'second line' of activists in place that would continue the campaign?
Is your material 'dispersed' so that taking out one cache would not necessarily mean the end of the game?
Cable Gate archive has been spread, along with significant material
from the US and other countries to over 100,000 people in encrypted
form. If something happens to us, the key parts will be released
automatically. Further, the Cable Gate archives is in the hands of
multiple news organisations. History will win. The world will be
elevated to a better place. Will we survive? That depends on you."
a feminist piece of work
"Revealed: Assange ‘rape’ accuser linked to notorious CIA operative"
"One of the women accusing WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange of sex
crimes appears to have worked with a group that has connections to the
US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
James D. Catlin, a lawyer who recently represented Assange, said the
sex assault investigation into the WikiLeaks founder is based on claims
he didn't use condoms during sex with two Swedish women.
Swedish prosecutors told AOL News
last week that Assange was not wanted for rape as has been reported,
but for something called "sex by surprise" or "unexpected sex."
One accuser, Anna Ardin, may have "ties to the US-financed anti-Castro and anti-communist groups," according to Israel Shamir and Paul Bennett, writing for CounterPunch.
While in Cuba, Ardin worked with the Las damas de blanco (the Ladies in White), a feminist anti-Castro group."
