2016-09-19 Marianne Ny's plan worked

Last Friday, we were to hear the decision of the Svea Court of Appeal regarding the continued detention of Julian Assange, but the decision was postponed a week at the last minute. Of course this was brought on by Marianne Ny's cringeworthy press conference. The court decision arrived on 16 September instead: continued detention, writes Dick Sundevall for Paragraf.

2016-09-18 No Debate

On 17 December 2010, in the wake of their interception of the Swedish police documents in the Assange case sent by Swedish attorney Björn Hurtig to Jennifer Robinson then at FSI, the Guardian published a series of articles, one of which was written by Esther Addley. 17 December 2010 is a long time ago - nearly six years - but one thing sticks out immediately when revisiting.

2016-07-03 On the Occasion of Julian Assange Celebrating His 45th Birthday Within the Confines of the Ecuadorean Embassy in London


Today, 3 July 2016, on the birthday of the greatest truth-teller of our times, it might be appropriate to congratulate and celebrate with Julian Assange (and his friends and his cat).

But is is also appropriate to review the persecution he has endured now for so many years. And no one is more suited to that task than the United Nations, as per their ruling from 4 December 2015.

Their description of the conditions of Julian Assange's persecution unequivocally places the Swedish prosecutor Marianne Ny in a category solely her own, forever displacing Claes Borgström as the country's (perhaps the world's) most incompetent (and most heinous) jurist ever.

2016-07-03 Happy 45, Julian!

Today Julian Assange celebrates yet another birthday - his 45th - at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London. He remains there because the United Kingdom refuse to recognise the 5 February ruling of the United Nations.

The United Kingdom, running lockstep with the United States, prefer to refer to a Swedish court ruling to detain Julian in absentia for the purposes of a questioning the Swedes have refused to undertake over thirty times.

Julian was granted political asylum by Ecuador after it became clear that neither Sweden nor the United Kingdom would do anything to resolve the deadlock, and because it's been the intention of the United Kingdom to send Julian to Sweden, a country which has a special agreement of temporary surrender with the United States, an agreement that supersedes all other agreements and laws.

Guillaume Long of the Foreign Ministry of Ecuador has acknowledged that his country has now received an application for questioning from notorious Swedish prosecutor Marianne Ny, but the contents of that request are not yet known.

There will be a birthday celebration outside the embassy at 16:00 BST, with birthday cake and refreshments available.
