Rape Allegation against Julian Assange- Investigation Reopens

The Swedish court has decided to reopen the rape allegation against Julian Assange; previously, it was previously unable to do so due to his stay at the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

In April, Assange was arrested for breach of bail after seven years.

About the Rape Allegations against Julian Assange

Two years ago, Sweden Julian Assange allegedly raped two women, while attending a party in Stockholm. To many this seems nothing more than a setup or an attempt to defame him.

Assange who is founder of WikiLeaks has exposed some of the most heinous acts committed by US armed forces personnel while serving abroad especially in Iraq. WikiLeaks released videos of helicopter pilots gunning down innocent people for no reason.

Furthermore, documents released by WikiLeaks clearly showed and documented the mistreatment of Guantanamo Bay inmates by prison staff. In Total Assange managed to obtain and release some highly classified documents and exposed some of the most highly covert programs regarding mass surveillance and information gathering by governments on their people  

The Number Of Document Obtained Are Staggering

In total the 47-year-old managed to obtain 90,000 war reports related to Afghanistan, 400,000 from the Iraq War, 800 Guantanamo Bay related to detainee assessments and 250,000 State Department cables. When asked why he did it, Assange replied because it was the right thing to do. People needed to know the truth, if it wasn’t me then it would have been someone else, eventually, someone would have to put his foot down.

Fear of Extradition to the US

The US military and other governmental organizations have been perusing Assange relentlessly. They have filed for political extradition to the US where he will be charged for acts of treason and may face the death penalty or life imprisonment if he gets lucky. Now this rape allegation against Julian Assange is another challenge for the whistleblower.
