Assange: The U.N. Is Getting Ridiculous

Assange Facing Swedish Court In 2010

Assange Facing Swedish Court In 2010

I really cannot believe that a United Nations panel, The Working Group on Arbitrary Detention, has come out with a ruling that Julian Assange should be freed, and paid compensation for the time he has been hiding from the Law in the Ecuadorian Embassy  in London. It is common knowledge that there is an outstanding warrant for this man’s arrest in Sweden on a charge of rape in 2010.

He fled the country and when an international arrest warrant was issued he was arrested by the Metropolitan Police in London. While on bail he took up refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London after losing several appeals, where he has been ever since.

Now, to my mind, if you are innocent of a crime such as this you do not run away and hide from the law, but, there is another tail on this animal. It is well known that he is wanted by the Americans for making public thousands of government secrets through Wikileaks. It is said he ran because he feared the Swedish Authorities would hand him over to the Americans to face trial, however, I consider this to be nothing more than an excuse to escape justice.

These Demonstrators Would Have Different Views If THEY had Been Raped.

He has been hiding in the Embassy since 2012 and the U.N. panel thinks this is illegal. What they seem to have conveniently forgotten is that he went there of his own free will to escape justice. To say that he has been illegally detained is too ridiculous for words, and on top of that they think he should be given compensation by the British Government for the time he has been ‘imprisoned’.

As you would expect, Assange has called for this decision to be respected and demands to be set free. The thing is, no-one is stopping him from walking out the front door of the Embassy, so as such he is not being ‘imprisoned’ as they say.

I am happy to say that the British and Swedish authorities do not seem impressed by this farce and will continue to regard him as someone who is evading justice. In my view all countries concerned should categorically ignore this stupid ruling by interfering busy-bodies from the U.N..

I am sure he can reach an agreement with the Swedish Authorities that he will step forward and face the charges against him provided he is not handed over to the Americans on Swedish soil. Should such an agreement be reached then he will have nothing to fear if he is in fact innocent.

Assange Plays The Victim

For the life of me I cannot see why the United Nations got involved in this mess in the first place. The man is basically a fugitive from Justice, and since when does the U.N. get involved in such cases? They should be concentrating on more important things like ridding the world of Islamic State and all the other Muslim terrorist groups.

It just goes to show you how farcical the world has become these days!
