Hey look! It’s the UN again, riding out to subvert the rule-of-law and the sovereignty of a western nation for reasons:
In 2014, Mr Assange complained to the UN that he was being “arbitrarily detained” as he could not leave the embassy without being arrested.
The application claimed Mr Assange had been “deprived of his liberty in an arbitrary manner for an unacceptable length of time”.
The UN’s Working Group on Arbitrary Detention is due to announce the findings of its investigation on Friday.
While the BBC understands the panel will find in Mr Assange’s favour, Wikileaks tweeted it was waiting for “official confirmation”.
“Arbitrarily Detained” means you are held against your will without due process or the force of the law. In effect, you are kidnapped or being held as a hostage.
Assange is not being forcibly detained in any way shape or form. He is voluntarily squatting at an Ecuadorean embassy to avoid justice:
Australian Mr Assange was originally arrested in London in 2010 under a European Arrest Warrant issued by Sweden.
He claimed asylum inside the Ecuadorean embassy in Knightsbridge after the UK Supreme Court ruled the extradition against him could go ahead.
He’s being accused of RAPE in Sweden. So after losing all his legal appeals, Julian Assange threw a fit and has now spent the last three plus years holed up at the Ecuadorean embassy in Knightsbridge.
On what grounds is Julian Assange so afraid of going to Sweden again?
His Wikileaks organisation posted secret American government documents on the internet, and Mr Assange says he believes Washington will seek his transfer to the US if he is sent to Sweden.
I don’t get it. The US has its own extradition treaty with the UK. Sure he is a scumbag for posting some documents exposing intelligence assets. Why would the United States wait until he got to Sweden?
I mean, we have no legal leg to charge him with anything. We already put away Bradly Manning for that a while ago and he’ll spend 35 years behind bars. I don’t think Julian Assange personally broke into US government computers to get classified documents himself. That’s the problem with paranoid-schizophrenics. I guess when you are balls deep in conspiracy theories, you see them everywhere no matter how dumb they sound. I am angry that, once again, the UN is going to feed someone’s awful paranoid delusions and undermine two nations sovereignty in carrying out the rule-of-law. Using the United States as the catch-all boogeyman has worked once again.
I am, however, highly amused at how Julian Assange has gotten the Ecuador government to take care of him for the last three plus years. Assange has everything he could want, like a place to sleep and food/internet. He could leave the Ecuadorean embassy in Knightsbridge at any time he wants, but Assange CHOOSES not to do so.
Well, see ya’ later!
