Head of Swedish Bar Association condemns the handling of the Assange case in UK and Sweden as “deplorable”

In “Assange –a bizarre story– which demands Swedish response”, the Secretary General of the Swedish Bar Association, Ms Anne Ramberg, criticizes prosecutor’s deeds in the pre-investigation of the case, and says that Sweden has a great responsibility for the situation that has arisen. Ms Anne Ramberg statements were published 14 of April in a Swedish article headed “Assange – en bisarr historia – som kräver svenskt agerande“, whose link is found at the Bar Association’s website [image at right]. Quoted here below, the full text of her article translated by Professor Marcello Ferrada de Noli.   “My knowledge about this matter, now an almost unique one, is not entirely in-depth.  It is a matter featured by everything from prodigal conspiracy theories…

Sweden’s involvement in the Clinton Foundation should be investigated

By Charles K. Ortel. Editor’s Note: Explaining Mr. Charles K. Ortel investigative work, the Wall Street On Parade commented in “A Harvard MBA Guy Is Out to Bring Down the Clintons“ (April 2016)   that he called the Clintons’ charity the “largest unprosecuted charity fraud ever attempted.”  After a prolific research contact with Mr Ortel –who was introduced to us by author and publisher Gilbert Mercier– The Indicter Magazine obtained both inspiration and a valuable feedback that would later crystallize in our investigations on the involvement of Sweden with the Clinton Foundation. See for instance, “Sweden’s business with Clinton Foundation in a geopolitical context“, and “Swedish company Tetrapak linked to Clinton Foundation Haiti Operations. More on Ericsson“. We see the original material by…

UK Threaten Assange As Sweden Withdraw Accusations

By Andrew Kreig, J.D., M.S.L., attorney and journalist. Member of the Editorial Board, and Associate Editor of The Indicter Magazine. British authorities threatened WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange with arrest on a bond-jumping charge last week after their Swedish counterparts gave up trying to investigate Assange on what appears to have been a dubious series of sex claims that have been pending against him for nearly seven years since his 2010 speaking trip to Stockholm. The British effort, if pursued aggressively with threatened punishment beyond the norm, would further compound a travesty of justice that has already disgraced the Swedish and British legal systems. The Swedes have wasted vast amounts of taxpayer money for the probe, as have the British in…

Declaración de Swedish Swedish Professors & Doctors For Human Rights (SWEDHR) for Human Rights sobre el asilo de Ecuador a Julián Assange

Prof. Marcello Ferrada de Noli, PhD. Presidente de la organización Swedish Doctors for Human Rights, SWEDHR. English summary: The real political reasons why Sweden and UK illegally detain Julian Assange As widely known, the panel of the United Nations [UNGWAD] who thoroughly examined the case of the detention of Mr Assange, concluded [1] that the government of our country has maintained Mr Assange’s arbitrarily arrest on the basis of unproven allegations. Moreover, the Swedish government and its prosecutors have demonstrated not having serious intentions of completing a ‘pre-trial investigation’. It has passed already more than six years – which constitutes a delay–record in the history of ‘legal’ procedures in Sweden on (political) cases of this kind. Particular aggravating – as…

New Analysis of Swedish Police Report Confirms Julian Assange’s Version in Sweden’s case

by Celia Farber, B.A. Editor’s Note: Author and investigative reporter Celia Farber has prepared for publication in The Indicter, an updated analysis of the Swedish Assange case. The in-depth analysis concludes that the police reports  confirm Julian Assange’s testimony, as given to the prosecutor in her questioning conducted at the Ecuadorian embassy in London. It  has also been established that the crucial allegations against Mr Julian Assange, as have appeared in the Swedish and international media, in fact were constructed by the police and were not what the complainants really said or wished to achieve. It has been discovered that it was the police, or the prosecutor’s office, which unlawfully and/or unethically leaked the “allegations” to the evening paper “Expressen”, which…

How Sweden bribed its way to a seat in the UN Security Council using millions taken from the public budget for aid to poor countries

By Prof Marcello Ferrada de Noli, PhD. Chair, Swedish Doctors for Human Rights.  “It was a cover operation for what this is really about, namely to buy votes, says the source” (In DN) In a few days, Sweden will be occupying a seat on the UN Security Council, including the chairmanship. This was the result of a hard campaign initiated in 2015 to gain endorsement among the voting governments. For that purpose, the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs spent 27 million SEK. The operation included the invitation to Stockholm, of UN ambassadors of a variety of poor and developing countries, and it was carried out on the most luxurious terms. This was financed with money taken from the Swedish Aid…

The new geopolitics of Sweden: Feminism, arms exports to dictatorships, & NATO. Impact in the Assange case

By Prof. Marcello Ferrada de Noli, chair, Swedish Professors & Doctors for Human Rights – SWEDHR. Introduction For exactly six years ago, Sweden ordered the detention of the WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange. According to the Snowden documents, the US government had  asked the countries participating in the occupation of Afghanistan under US-military command, to initiate prosecution of Assange. [1] Only Sweden complied. In a previous analysis I concluded that Sweden most likely would persist in neither undertaking nor recognizing the international criticism for its rejection of the UN conclusion regarding the arbitrary detention of Mr Julian Assange. That is to say, it will not do so at least in the nearest future. Further, the article hypothesizes that –in the eventuality…

Assange Defense Underscores Shameful Swedish, U.S. Tactics

By Andrew Kreig, J.D., M.S.L., attorney and journalist. Member of The Indicter editorial board. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange last week refuted the dubious prosecution Sweden began against him in August 2010. Assange’s written response on Dec. 7, with his first detailed defense, underscores the disgraceful procedures used by Sweden, the United States, and the United Kingdom, with the complicity of mainstream media outlets that primarily published biased accounts. With the zeal and arrogance of a police state, Sweden has repeatedly violated due process under a veneer of legal and human rights rhetoric. Sweden’s use of sexual misconduct claims to capture Assange stems from coordinated reprisal by the three nations for his WikiLeaks publication in 2010 that included some 250,000 classified U.S.…

Tell Sweden to respect decision by the United Nations body on Arbitrary Detention and free Julian Assange!

By Prof Marcello Ferrada de Noli, chair, Swedish Professors and Doctors for Human Rights – SWEDHR. Updated image: Senator Sasse wishes to stop WikiLeaks exposures on CIA. Sweden refuses to clearly state whether or not they will extradite WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to the U.S. There is no charge whatsoever against Julian Assange in Sweden; and he does not need to be “pardoned” by Sweden. It is Sweden that needs to abide with the decision taken by the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention (UNWGAD)  demanding the immediate freedom of Julian Assange. In the past, Sweden has been internationally recognized as a leading country on matters of human rights and respect of individual’s political and civil rights. At its…
