Assange should just quit stalling and go back voluntarily to Sweden to answer the Charges ...

Supreme Court appeal.

The High Court refused permission to appeal to the Supreme Court, but this was granted by the Supreme Court itself, after the High Court certified that a point of law of general public importance was involved in its decision. The point of law certified was whether a prosecutor is a judicial authority. The Supreme Court heard the appeal on 1 and 2 February 2012. The court reserved its judgment, and its decision is expected within weeks.

Sweden is hardly an unfriendly or over-regulated Society ... Assange screwed-up and got himself in Trouble ... The Fact that he CONTINUES to REFUSE to take any Responsibility for his own Behavior makes HIM -- and, by Association, "WikiLeaks" -- look BAD ...

Swedish Prosecution Authority.

Compared with many other countries, the Swedish prosecutor is very powerful. The prosecutor conducts both the investigation and brings the case to court.


Swedish prosecutors have three main duties:
• to lead and direct the preliminary investigations of crime
• to make decisions on prosecution issues
• to appear in court to process actions in criminal cases

Amerika über alles!

In an unusual case, a U.S. judge ruled on Wednesday that Motorola cannot enforce an injunction that would prevent Microsoft from selling Windows products in Germany, should a German court issue such an injunction next week.


Microsoft asked the judge for the ruling in anticipation of an injunction that a German court is expected to issue related to a patent infringement suit that Motorola filed against Microsoft in Germany. The suit centers primarily on Motorola licenses that have been declared essential to the H.264 video standard. The German injunction is expected on April 17.


Judge James Robart, who is overseeing a related patent dispute between the companies in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington, said that until a May 7 hearing Motorola can't act to enforce an injunction from the German court without further leave to do so from his court

Network Ten will air this movie in the second half of this year.

Newcomer Alex Williams will play Julian Assange inUnderground, the Australian TV movie that’s based around the early life of the WikiLeaks founder. Rachel Griffiths will play Assange’s activist mother, Christine Assange. Anthony LaPaglia is playing Ken Roberts, the detective determined to uncover the young Assange’s activity in Melbourne in the late 80s and early 90s when he led a ring of underground hackers. The film hails from Matchbox Pictures, in which NBCUniversal acquired a majority stake last year.

Yes ... Julian Assange was in Legal Trouble even as an Adolescent ... Had he been such a snoopy Kid back in, say, the 1940s-50s, inclined to ILLEGALLY violating others' Privacy, I suppose he would have been stealing Mail from the Neighbors' MailBoxes, steaming their Letters open, reading and copying them, re-sealing them and putting them back ...


Nice Kid ... SOME Kids never really grow up ...

More Yankistani arrogance!

The United States' global trade representative has strongly criticized a perceived preference on the part of large Australian organizations for hosting their data on-shore in Australia, claiming it created a significant trade barrier for U.S. technology firms. A number of U.S. companies had expressed concerns that various departments in the Australian Government, namely the Department of Defence had been sending negative messages about cloud providers based outside the country, implying that 'hosting data overseas, including in the United States, by definition entails greater risk and unduly exposes consumers to their data being scrutinized by foreign governments.' Recently, Acting Victorian Privacy Commissioner Anthony Bendall highlighted some of the privacy concerns with cloud computing, particularly in its use by the local government. He said the main problems were the lack of control over stored data and privacy, in overseas cloud service providers.

Big Brother again.

In a world where employers monitor the computer communications of their employees, law enforcement officers find it easy to demand that internet service providers give up information on the web-browsing habits of their subscribers.

Truth comes second to power.

Yet it is now undeniable that, at US behest, Julian Assange stands to lose his liberty, indefinitely, for telling the truth. And the very same Labor Party, with its CIA-assisted PM and its concern for truth re-education, lifts not a finger to help him.


It's quite clear that Assange is not guilty - not of rape, not of treason. As Malcolm Turnbull, responding to Gillard's "illegal" claim, told a Sydney University law school


audience last year, it is prima facie clear that Assange has broken no Australian law.


In words of one syllable, the Australian Federal Police agrees. There has been no breach of our law.


Christine Assange says when she began investigating this, it was like slipping through a wormhole into another, shadowy world where the rules do not apply. Australian lore sees her son as a cult-outlaw in the time-honoured tradition, a modern folk hero, wrongly maligned for helping us to see into that wormhole.


Assange has been under house arrest for 15 months. His family are in hiding and governments all over the world vilify him. A US sealed indictment could deliver decades in prison, or worse, his lawyers claim. Yet he has not been charged. Not with rape. Not with terrorism. Not with hacking. Not even with condomless sex.


The man is an Australian citizen in fear of his life, victim of a massive miscarriage of justice. But our government does nothing.


Were it anyone else - even on a genuine charge, formally laid - Gillard, Roxon and Carr would be over there, holding hands, pressing buttons, making tea. But because it's Assange, and because he's been telling inconvenient truths about Big Brother, he is guilty until proved otherwise.


The sex charges are clearly ridiculous and the Swedish justice system so convoluted as to be, if you'll excuse the pun, impenetrable.


Yet the Sweden-US bilateral extradition agreement requires neither charge nor evidence. The minute he lands in Sweden, Assange can be locked up in solitary, incommunicado, and indefinitely without charge.


Or he can be shuffled straight onto the US extradition plane and, under sealed indictment, into the secret horror of a grand jury. There will be no judge, and no defence materials. Just a jury drawn from the most militarised area of the US - Alexandria, Virginia.


This is weird. Assange didn't do the evil stuff. He exposed it (names redacted).


But join the dots. Over the same period, Karl Rove has been advising the Swedish Prime Minister, Fredrik Reinfeldt, known as ''Sweden's Reagan''. Julia Gillard, flipped into power by CIA-friendly Mark Arbib, describes herself rhythmically as "a true mate" to the US, "an ally for the 60 years past … an ally for all the years to come". And in our Parliament a raft of sinister legislation has appeared.


Labor's special amendments to the Extradition Act allow the same, proofless ''streamlining'' of extradition from Australia. Its so-called "WikiLeaks Amendment" allows ASIO to spy, at the Attorney-General's discretion, on known supporters - despite the AFP's view that no law has been breached. And its controversial Cybercrime Security Bill allows routine collection and surveillance of private emails, texts and other personal data.
