Julian Assange: Interpol places Assange on Most Wanted List

Filed in Gather News Channel by on December 1, 2010 0 Comments

Julian Assange has now been placed on Interpol’s most-wanted list. Julian Assange is famous for being the founder of the site Wikileaks. Julian Assange and Wikileaks have been all over the news here lately. The website Wikileaks recently released confidential diplomatic documents via the web for all of the world to view. A lot of high officials are criticizing  Assange and feel as though charges should be brought against him for releasing this top secret information. However, this is not the reason Assange is on Interpol’s most-wanted list.

Julian Assange had previously appealed charges concerning allegations of him molesting two Swedish women. The court denied his appeal, and the Stockholm Criminal Court issued an international arrest warrant for Assange for probable cause. They stated he is suspected of rape, sexual molestation and illegal use of force in the incidents which are said to have taken place in August.

Sweden asked Interpol to post a “Red Notice” after a judge approved a motion to bring Assange into custody for questioning. Sweden’s director of prosecutions, Marianne Ny, stated, The background is that he has to be heard in this investigation and we haven’t been able to get a hold of him to question him.”

According to CNN, the request Ny filed with the court states that Assange faces five counts. One count of rape, another of sexual molestation, two additional counts of sexual molestation, and one count of illegal use of force. Wow!

People all around the world have become suspicious of these allegations brought against Assange. The latest conspiracy theory is that these allegations are an attempt to bring him and his website down for exposing the ugly truth. What do you think? It’s going to be quite difficult for Interpol or anyone else to locate where Assange is. After all, he did just release some very secret diplomatic documents that negatively affect not only our government, but also other world-wide unions.
