Continuing Coverage: Wikileaks And Assange.
Some new material has been released into the public domain concerning the allegations against Julian Assange.
I can’t make my mind up on it. I think it tends to detract from the issues which have come out during these Wikileaks, Techworld reports:
“Text messages sent by the two women who accuse WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange of rape and assault mention “revenge” and “economic gain,” according to testimony during the second day of his extradition hearing.
Defense witness Björn Hurtig said he was allowed under police supervision to examine hundreds of messages, which “suggest things that go against what the claimants have said regarding the rape.”
Hurtig, who is Assange’s attorney in Sweden, said he saw text messages “speaking of revenge” and taking “economic advantage” of Assange, who is wanted for questioning related to alleged incidents with two women in mid-August 2010.
He faces possible charges of unlawful coercion, sexual molestation and rape, but his legal team presents those accusations as a veiled attack related to WikiLeaks’ release of secret U.S. diplomatic cables.”
His solicitors, Finers Stephens Innocent, have other material on their site here.
I haven’t looked through it if anyone finds anything good then please let me know.
And some of my other posts on the matter:
