NewsFlash: Wikileaks founder innocent of piglet theft.

Filed under: Uncategorized — raka @ 08:55

Justice Howard Riddle has warned he will allow extradition of the famed WikiLeaker Julian Assange to Sweden, unless prosecutors provide evidence for claims of sexual abuse. Fair enough. However the Swedes claim that evidence is not relevant – and just they might have a point.

The prosecutors are seeking a European Arrest Warrant (EAW), which “makes extradition to a country in the European Union that requests it all but automatic”. Happily Britain seems to want to reign in the EAWs, and Justice Riddle is apparently taking the lead. I just hope that he is not being swayed by Assange’s fame, and that future Lithuanian piglet-rustlers will receive similar treatment in his court.
