ASSANGE ARRESTED in London - in court later today
Wiki-lord cuffed 'by appointment'
Wikileaks spokesman Julian Assange has been arrested by police in London and will appear in court later today.
A spokesman for Scotland Yard said: "Assange was arrested by appointment at a central London police station at 9.30 this morning.
"He will appear at City of Westminster magistrates later today."
Thirty-nine-year old Assange was arrested by the Met's Extradition Unit on behalf of Swedish authorities. He was arrested on a European arrest warrant issued by Sweden.
The Metropolitan Police said: "He is accused by the Swedish authorities of one count of unlawful coercion, two counts of sexual molestation and one count of rape, all alleged to have been committed in August 2010." ®
Seems par for the course...
Standard smear tactic by governments looking to discredit someone- Attach them to a sex scandal.
I hate to say this but ...
i wonder if all the court documents about the case will be posted onto wikileaks?
quote of the day
"The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth becomes the greatest enemy of the State." -- Dr. Joseph M. Goebbels
