Assange drums up support through UN

assangeJulian Assange illegally detained, says UN panel.  So do all his left wing, anti US and useful idiot supporters.

Big deal as he isn't detained at all. Other than the rape allegations in Sweden he needs to be brought to book over treason and given 20 to life for the damage he's done to the West's fight against terrorism.
Assange’s legal team has argued that the favourable ruling means the Swedish prosecutors — who have yet to charge Assange with any crime, but want to question him over a rape allegation — should revoke the arrest warrant and he could walk free.
It doesn't mean that at all. He should answer the charges.
But any such move may take time. The UN Human Rights spokesman Christophe Peschoux told Associated Press the application of the group’s decisions were rarely immediate and could take months to be applied. Countries can appeal the finding to the working group.
They can also ignore it. He is not actually detained as he chooses to hide away in an embassy like a cur.  Thus the whole exercise is just to give Assange some oxygen as he fights his real problem - being arrested and extradited to the US to face charges of publishing confidential documents. Come on you bastard, if your so sweet and innocent, step out on the street and face your accusers.

    Precisely. Uncle Sam has always had a problem with embarrassing but accurate reporting, and will never forgive him.
    It’s great to see an Aussie, even one as flakey as Assange, tweaking Uncle Sam’s beard and getting away with it.

    • Lets just ignore the fact that he is accused of multiple counts of rape shall we? your hatred for the USA allows you to be OK with that doesn’t it numbers?

      As long as the USA is quoted as being the boogyman, what is justice for a few female victims really worth?

      You are a disgusting piece of shit numbers, but you already know that and so do we.

  • So it’s OK for a person to publish operational matters that get good men killed and otherwise severely hinder the fight against terrorism?

    I know you hate the US but seriously mate do you want the Reavers to win?

    Oh, and he won’t get away with it. Uncle Sam will get him and I’ll be cheering when they do.

  • By the same yardstick the UN has just used, Ronald Biggs was “detained” in Brazil for decades.

    Actually the terminology used by the UN was “arbitrarily” detained.
    Assange’s being inside the Ecuadorian Embassy is many things.
    “Arbitrary” it is not.

  • So it’s OK for a person to publish operational matters that get good men killed and otherwise severely hinder the fight against terrorism?</i?
    Put simply, Kev – that is bullshit – http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-11882092
    the fight against terrorism
    Tell me one occasion in recent history when military intervention eliminated terrorism.
    It’s about as successful as the so-called “war on drugs”.
    Makes a good sound-bite for doorstops, is all.

    • Put simply mate it isn’t The war against terror will take a long time particularly when people like you support them by spending all your time trolling to find something to attack the US on.

      • I find it difficult to understand why you lower yourself to use four letter words when speaking to or about 1735069…..MATE indeed.

      • So it’s OK for a person to publish operational matters that get good men killed
        Post the name of one US (or Australian) serviceman killed because of information released on WikiLeaks.
        I have no time for Assange, but my ICD* works overtime with this meme.
        The Yanks did the same thing back in 1971 when Ellsberg published the Pentagon Papers. It was a lie then, and this is a lie now.
        As for hating the Yanks – I have quite a few friends who are American citizens, many of whom teachers who came to Australia when there was a recruiting process in 1974-75 because of a teacher shortage in Queensland.
        They are in despair of their own country, where only 64% got to vote in the 2012 Congressional elections, where the incarceration rate is the highest in the world (716 per 100,000 of the national population) and where recent census data shows that half the population qualifies as poor or low income.
        I don’t hate the Yanks, but I despair of the plutocracy it has become. It provides an object lesson to Australians, principally in what to avoid in a democracy.
