Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks has been suspected of sexual offences. As of today, September 13th 2012, the preliminary investigation that was re-opened on September 1st 2010 has still not been completed. It’s been over two years since it was issued. Now it's time to go straight to the source of the problem.
Mr. Assange is known for his political views and work with WikiLeaks which publishes submissions of secret information about war crimes, corruption and other criminality. The British government intends to extradite Mr. Assange to Sweden for alleged sexual offences under a European Arrest Warrant that has been issued by the Swedish Prosecutor Marianne Ny at the Public Prosecution Authority Development Center in Gothenburg. Mr. Assange says he fears the extradition may result in a subsequent extradition to the United States to face charges over WikiLeak's publishing of diplomatic cables. As of today Mr. Assange has not been charged for any offense since there have been difficulties to arrange a preliminary investigation. Mr. Assange has asked for the Swedish Prosecution Authority to issue a ”Legal assistance in criminal matters” but this has been rejected. A "Diplomatic assurance" against a subsequent extradition to the United States, where he risks being tortured, has also been denied. Mr. Assange has made clear that he is willing to address the allegations as long as he doesn't have to fear for his safety.
