He had just humiliated the most powerful nation in the world, heading one of the most controversial cyber operations in history. So when Julian Assange arrived in Sweden in August 2010 he was greeted like a conquering hero.
But within weeks there was a warrant out for his arrest and he was being investigated for rape and sexual molestation. However, as the details of the allegations against Assange emerged, suspicions arose over the legal barrage being aimed at him. Exploring the mysterious circumstances surrounding the case, this documentary gets to the heart of a bizzare tale of international cat and mouse.
It’s clear that when Assange arrived in Sweden Anna Ardin & Sofia Wilen were both enthralled by the Wikileaks phenomena and he slept with both women over a period of weeks. The charges originated with a misunderstanding in a Stockholm police station that “some sort of sex crime had been committed”.

We just need to be careful that the world doesn’t forget his plight anytime soon, his worst enemy will be international indifference due to a lack of sustained interest by the media.
What have the Swedish women said publicly with respect to their role in this issue? Has there been an effort by media to question them?
plays like an awesome espionage film …
no charges. no hunt.
i wonder if the people who asked for julian assange’s assassination live on TV are charged with spurring to commit a crime.
the most disturbing comment was by one of these men saying he is against the death penalty but for the assassination of someone who is not even charged with a crime. self righteousness is quite something.
free information, free assange
