Julian Assange placed on most wanted list

Interpol issues warrant for arrest of the WikiLeaks founder on rape charges


Interpol has issued a “red notice” for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, effectively adding him to their most wanted list. This comes after a Swedish court approved a motion in mid-November to have Assange, who is suspected of rape, sexual molestation and unlawful coercion, brought in for questioning. Assange, whose whereabouts are unknown, denies the charges, which stem from sexual relations he admits to having with two women in Sweden. Mark Stephens, his British-based lawyer says the sex was consensual, and the two women only turned on his client when they learned he was sleeping with someone else.

Julian Assange placed on most wanted list

  1. Message to world leaders: stop doing stupid illegal $h!t and you'll have nothing to fear from Wikileaks.

    Wikileaks is now an idea and nobody can stop it. Besides Assange has planted about 1,000 data bombs that will go off if anything happens to him. He's saving the REALLY nasty details to pull out if things get ugly.

    • Has Wikileaks leaked anything that showed world leaders were doing anything illegal? I thought all the stuff leaked was just the usual sort of correspondence you'd expect between diplomats and governments.

  2. It's not really a "most wanted" list, since all of the hundreds of individuals for whom a "red notice" has been issued are on the list.

    So Assange is listed among hundreds of others. There is nothing to suggest that he is the "most wanted" among a group of individuals suspected of more serious crimes.

    • He might not be the most wanted…but he is # 1 on Interpols most wanted list, I wonder if that makes a difference ? I also wonder what would happen if Assange was to say…Disappear suddenly ??

  3. This is a setup. Freedom of information will not be tolerated by the powers in the towers.
