ASSANGE & SWEDEN
The strange case of the WikiLeaks editor
and the Swedish prosecutor
Since August of 2010, WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange has been ensnared in a legal drama that originated in Sweden and expanded to include the United Kingdom, where he has been under strict court-ordered surveillance and control since December of that year.
During the same period, Assange has been subjected to escalating threats of assassination and imprisonment from powerful interests in the United States due to WikiLeaks disclosures, many of which involve the superpower’s violations of human rights and international law.
This section of NNN’s website is concerned primarily with the Swedish proceedings against Julian Assange and includes the following elements:
