THE EGOIST Julian Assange puts a lot of money to free himself from allegations of rape – but he doesn’t lift a finger when Bradley Manning, Wikileaks claimed source, is tortured in arrest and is risking lifetime in jail, writes Jan Guillou.
Julian Assange - a little creep without principles
It’s embarrassing clear that Julian Assange, the frontman of Wikileaks, is not a male role model. To say it modestly. If he also is guilty to some kind of rape and sexual molestation, I can not comment. But his ardent supporters, who claim to know he is innocent, don’t know either.
The reason we don’t know, depends on Julian Assange himself, who refuses to come to Sweden for an interrogation. If he was so innocent as he and his followers claims, it would be an easy way to get the suspicions out of the way (and come to Sweden, my notation). Most people suspected of sexual crime in Sweden is actually free, depending on rather high standard of proof. (*)
Assange has launched a campaign against the Swedish legal system. He likens Sweden to Saudi Arabia and he means that innocent men are treated as if they were in an assembly line, and get convicted, because of the iron hard feminists who rule in this country. In addition, he speaks of a conspiracy that involves passing through Sweden on false rape allegations to have him extradited to U.S. There of course he would be tried very hard in retaliation for the disclosures Wikileaks has published.
Also for those who like myself for decades has devoted to criticize shortcomings in the Swedish judicial system seems legal reasoning from Assange and his circle, so absurd that they are not even worth taking seriously. Even more embarrassing is that well-known radical social critics such as John Pilger, Michael Moore and Tariq Ali seems to back up this campaign.
It is true that Wikileaks has published some very shocking revelations. Best known is the video footage showing American soldiers, under cheerful conversation, murdering a dozen civilians in Baghdad in 2007. It’s something so unusual as war crimes recorded by the war criminals themselves. You can understand the fact that the U.S. armed forces will find such a publication highly inappropriate. Or even treasonous.
And now we are really approaching a legal scandal far from Julian Assanges self-absorbed idiot campaign. The U.S. authorities have, since a year, alleged source captured, and expose him to harassment that goes over the limit towards torture. Bradley Manning, 23 years, kept naked in solitary confinement, prevented from sleeping and “inspected” (naked at attention) many times a day. He has not yet been tried, not clear why, but prosecutors have announced that they will be pressing for life imprisonment for some form of treason.
Bradley Manning ought to defend himself by saying that he helped to expose U.S. war crimes and that the high principles of democracy, therefore, excuse his leak of information. The U.S. armed forces shall not be able to conceal their crime to the principals, the American people. Something like that, the defense ought to be posted. Large legal principles against each other, and Bradley Manning is in need of the best lawyers to be found.
In the American legal system you are in dire need of money to defend yourself. This support Wikileaks has, despite promises, not given (given money to Mannings defense, my notation) Instead, Julian Assange stays with three english lawyers who is helping him not to come to Sweden for interrogation.
The story of Julian Assange is a legal scandal of large dimensions. Not because Julian Assange is suspected of sex crimes but that his source of those huge revelations risks life imprisonment and also is tortured during an incomprehensible pending for trial.
The story also contains a political martyr at the same level as Daniel Ellsberg, who in the 1970s, leaked information about the Vietnam War, was tried, got money collected to the first classical legal assistance - and was acquitted.
But the political martyr is certainly not Julian Assange, although he seriously puts it so. The victim is Bradley Manning. Julian Assange risk is at most a financial penalty, according to the allegations. His source, Bradley Manning, author of Assanges hero status, risks life imprisonment.
But that doesn’t seem to worry Assange himself or his cheerleading squad. For them, lawyers for Assange is more important than for Bradley Manning. Quite apart from his conviction in the rape story, one can safely say that Julian Assange is a small disgust without principles. Once again, putting it modestly.
* This is in my opinion, a remarkable statement from Guillou. He himself, wrote an article in the same paper (Aftonbladet) just a few months ago ( 2010-10-10) about how innocent men gets judged by the Swedish courts. See “Billy butt utsatt för ett justitiemord”
“Hung in silence are most of the men, who are innocent, and sentenced for sexual crime. And they are many. The Chancellor of Justice pointed out in a report from 2006 (“wrong judgements”) a dozen judgements like that. And that was only about men who, against long odds, successfully managed to appeal the sentence and got acquittal.”
Now read Rixsteps acidic retort: Jan Guillou Comes Out of Retirement to Bark
It was discovered only a year or so ago that Jan Guillou had also been a spy for the Soviet Union. Unbelievably enough. He was simultaneously a spy for the Swedish security police and the social democratic party.
Jan Guillou writes occasionally even today, despite his ripe age. He comes out of retirement to answer questions about his recruitment by the KGB or to make a guest appearance in a smear documentary about Julian Assange where he can laugh at those charges against Assange (and the reaction of Assange and his legal team to them). Or where he can say nasty things about People Who Aren’t As Great As Jan Guillou™ such as John Pilger, Michael Moore, and Tariq Ali.
Here’s an interesting detail in it all: The author of the smear article (Jan Guillou), has a daughter (Ann-Linn Guillou), who is a Facebookfriend to the Police inspector Irmeli Krans, (the police who interrogated Sofia W., one of the two women accusing Assange for rape). The other woman, accusing Assange, Anna A. is also a friend of Irmeli Krans.
Meanwhile, Peter Bratt, the not-as-famous as Guillou reporter who did all the hard work revealing the IB-affair without receiving any of the credit has posted this article on Newsmill.
It’s worth noting that writers do not get paid to write articles for Newsmill, instead they do it for free when a topic is close to their hearts.
“Rape of the less serious kind” is what the lawyer calls it. (Male)jerk!
is Irmeli Krans status update. She’s likely read the news where Mark Stephens has stated things like:
We don’t even know what ‘sex by surprise’ even means, and they haven’t told us,” Stephens said, just hours after Sweden’s Supreme Court rejected Assange’s bid to prevent an arrest order from being issued against him on allegations of sex crimes.
As the case was all over the papers that day. Her facebok friends agree with her, all but one.
Imreli given your job though, I think that you should integrity enough to refrain from the status bar. I’m serious. Citizens must have confidence that the police are neutral, objective, without bias.
The man who protests is Harald Ullman, Vice Chairman of the City Police Board and owner of Ullman PR. Back in 1972 he was appointed ombudsman organization and personnel of the Social Democrats, and is still very active in the party.
Irmeli Krans would like Bodström to “come home and shut down Flashback”. We’re flattered. Really we are. And thrilled to see a police officer wish for a lawyer/politician to shut down the last place in Sweden where one can actually engage in free speech.
Flashback isn’t hosted in Sweden, and for very good reason, they’ve tried shutting it down before. Who told Assange Sweden was a safe haven?
“Scandal!” exclaims the police officer Irmeli Krans 15:43 the 25th of August. She’s likely heard the news on the radio that Eva Finné has dropped the case.
It’s interesting to note here, that she hasn’t finished writing the interrogation with miss Wilén yet. She was meant to finish that the 23rd of August but had taken a sickday. She returned to the station the 26th to complete the statement from Sofia Wilén.
From the news report:
Kvinnans advokat Claes Borgström är kritisk till åklagarens beslut och har begärt en prövning av beslutet. Den ska göras i morgon.
“The womans lawyer (note: singular) is critical to the prosecutors decision and has demanded a second look. That will be done tomorrow.”
at the bottom of this facebook conversation, Irmeli Krans says at 22.44 that she’s hopeful that Borgström will sort things out.
Irmeli Krans is a friend of Anna Ardin and at the time, the investigator of the case, also the person who interrogated Sofia Wilén. The statement from Wilén, Sofia was completed 2010-08-26 14:43 diarienr: 0201-K246314-10. A Day after Eva Finné had closed the case. The statement ends with these words:
Fredagen den 20 augusti 2010 höll jag förhör med målsägande Sofia Wilén i ärende 0201-K246314-10 på Klara närpolisstation. Förhöret påbörjades kl.16.21 och avslutades kl.18.40. Därefter skrevs förhöret in i wordprogrammet i Durtvå. Förhöret skulle renskrivas nästkommande tjänstgöringsdag, måndagen den 23 augusti 2010. Detta var inte möjligt då jag nekades tillgång till förhöret jag hållit. Efter diverse brevväxling fick jag direktivet av handläggare Mats Gehlin att istället skapa och signera ett nytt förhör i DurTvå vilket gjordes torsdagen den 26 augusti med behövliga ändringar. Tyvärr daterades och tidsangavs det dokumentet med rättelsens tidpunkt eftersom detta sker med automatik i DurTvås system.
Translation: Friday, August 20, 2010 I held hearings with victims Sofia Wilén Case 0201-K246314-10 on Clara neighborhood police station. The interrogation began and ended kl.16.21 kl.18.40. After the hearing provided in MS Word program in “Durtvå”. The interrogation would be transcripted the next workday, Monday 23 August 2010. This was not possible when I was denied access to the sattement. After some correspondence I received the directive by the administrators Mats Gehlin instead to create and sign a new hearing in DurTvå which was made on Thursday 26 August with the necessary modifications. I was dated and timestamped the document with the right time as this is done automatically in DurTvås systems.
It’s most likely that she was denied access because the case was actually closed (by the prosecutor) when she tried to “complete” it. Note the phrase “the necessary modifications”. What modifications? Also note that this statement in the 100 page “HäPM” is not signed or verbally approved by Sofia Wilén herself. Everyone elses statements are approved by the people who were questioned.
With thanks to the people at flashback, as I don’t have time to translate today. You know who you are. Keep up the good work.
Anna Ardin and SW did not go to the closest police station. They chose a distant one, the Klara police station where her friend, gay police, active social democrat Irmeli Krans worked that very friday afternoon. AA and IK have a long history, of going to HBT-clubs together, and of work in the social democrat party.
The police station closes at 1600, but Irmeli Krans stays after closing hours. All formal papers are timed after 1600.
Irma Starts the interrogation, but before it is even finished, policewoman Linda Wassgren calls the prosecutor Maria Häljebo Kjellstrand and arranges the arrest (‘anhållan’, sweden has a silly terminology with several synonyms for arrest) of Julian Assange. Yes, the same prosecutor that confirmed the arrest to the press, and was replaced the next day by prosecutor Eva Finné who invalidated the arrest and even stated that the interrogation report showed that no crime had been committed. (notice: not the weaker that no crime could be proved. No, she states that the original interrogation report of SW shows that there WAS no crime described).
Yes, the original report that still seems to be lost or deleted. And never signed by SW! (the interrogation was never finished, but discontinued because SW’s distress on hearing about the arrest and rape charge towards JA made ‘her unable to concentrate’)
There were early rumors of an internal promemoria among the police protesting the rape charge. This protest was probably coming from Irma. Probably, and speculatively, the whole affair at this moment was grasped from the control of Anna Ardin and Irmeli Krans, and into the hands of policeman Mats Gehlin. Yes, the same Mats Gehlin that is leader of the investigations from now on, that continuously leaks material to the press, and makes public statements to the press where he critisizes prosecutor Eva Finné.
Yes, the same Mats Gehlin that orders Irma to write a new report of the above interrogation of SW.
( precise references to the original report https://www.flashback.org/sp28605042)
Speculation: Anna Ardin had very specific purposes by going with Sophia Wilén to the police. They involved a mixture of revenge, blackmail on Julian Assange and putting pressure on him to get STD tested. They used a clever tactic involving friends among the police and using a specific police station at closing hours on a friday. There was no intention of creating a huge public and international affair that would last months.
The whole affair exploded because other interests, with policeman Mattias Ghelin, at the center, almost immediately grasped control of the whole affair for their own purposes.
1. The police interview with Ms. W, the woman allegedly accusing Assange for rape, was not tape-recorded.
2. A narrative account of the interview was entered into the police computer system on the same day that it was made.
3. Days later, the police woman who had authored the account of the interview with Ms.W tried to access it again “to finish it”, but ”was denied access” for unclear reasons. She was then instructed by a superior to replace the original report with a new report of unclear origin, and did so. It is not known how the new account of the interview with Ms. W differed from the original account; only the new account is available now.
3b. The police woman did so (wrote a new report) under protest, which is proven by a dialog she has with her superior through a series of emails. She apparently thinks writing a new report is against procedure, and she gets detailed instructions on how to make (fake in my opinion) the new report. This policewoman was soon taken off the case.
4. According to the leaks, Ms. W had not heard and verified any one of the narrative accounts of the interview with her. The allegation in the EAW that Assange had sex with Ms. W while she was sleeping thus amounts to hearsay.
5. The police woman interviewing Ms. W is an acquaintance of the other accuser, Ms. A. They are both active social democrats and they are both engaged in activities for homosexual, bisexual and transsexual persons.
Who is on Anna ardins list of “friends” in her blog?
Why yes, it’s the same police officer who handled the original testimony from the ladies who accused Assange for rape/molestation. Interesting.
