Assange declared an 'enemy of the people in Sweden'

Julian Assange’s chances of being given a fair trail if he is extradited to Sweden on sexual allegations has been further damaged by a “toxic” attack on him by the Swedish Prime Minister, a court heard yesterday.

The WikiLeaks founder’s defence team have claimed that comments made by Fredrik Reinfeldt on Tuesday have made Mr Assange “public enemy number one” in Sweden.

Mr Reinfeldt was quoted by Swedish newspapers commenting on Mr Assange’s claim that he will not be given a fair trial in Sweden. The Prime Minister is reported to have said that the suggestion was “patronising” to the Swedish judicial system. The claim is central to Mr Assange’s defence against the European Arrest Warrant which the Swedes have issued to have him sent from Britain to Sweden to face charges of sexual assault and rape. Witnesses at his extradition hearing have said that rape trials in Sweden are held in private. On the final day of the hearing at Woolwich Crown Court yesterday, Geoffrey Robertson QC, defending, said: “The Prime Minister of Sweden has made an attack on Mr Assange. He has been denounced as an enemy of the people.” The case was adjourned until 24 February.

    A letter to Sweden
    Summary: Sweden is not the best guy of Europe. May be for sexual assaults they are the barbarian of Europe. Examples are the case of Assange and the government sex crimes.
    I think that the most of the Swedish people think that Assange has been crossed the allowed boundaries of the law. He said that his box of rape after the trial shall be empty. I think that he has been lied a little bit and did something in the grey zone. His lie is necessary because Sweden has terrible laws about sexual assaults for man against woman. In Sweden it’s always a he which is arrested for rape , waited sometimes a long time in jail before he go to court. The he would not get a fair trial. Hearing of rape cases are behind closed doors and they believe the woman first and there is also a political influence. Sweden makes the law for rape very complicate. If the woman go to the police than they make the arrest warrant without risk for the woman. Sweden thinks that they are one of the best guys of Europe and have a modern state with modern laws. I think that’s wrong if I look how they handle crimes of sexual assaults. On this moment with Marianne Ny as prosecuter for rape cases I think that Sweden is a kind of Saoedi Arab with as victim men. If I look to the black pages in the history of sexual crime in Sweden against women I think the government must look good to her own history of the twentieth century before she makes such inhumane strong laws against men. Sweden has a terrible sexual crime history, because in the past she has been made it for some groups of the inhabitants impossible to get children. They sterilized in the twentieth century a lot of Swedish women. This group in the North of Sweden was unwanted and must be limited. So Sweden be careful if you make and use laws against sexual assaults and suppose that you make and use the laws better than in the beginning of this century. Normal people and governments are not without any crime. What the Swedish prosecuter do with the foreigner Assange is unfair. In my opnion a rape-process with prosecuter Marianne Ny is barbarian.
