PRESS RELEASE: Baltasar Garzón, will lead the legal team representing Julian Assange and WikiLeaks.

Tue Jul 24 19:36:07 UTC 2012

Statement approved by Julian Assange and Baltasar Garzón

The Spanish judge, lawyer, and international jurist, Baltasar Garzón, will lead the legal team representing Julian Assange and WikiLeaks. The jurist met with Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in the United Kingdom recently. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the new legal strategy which will defend both WikiLeaks and Julian Assange from the existing abuse of process; expose the arbitrary, extrajudicial actions by the international financial system which target Julian Assange and WikiLeaks specifically; and show how the secret US processes against Julian Assange and WikiLeaks have compromised and contaminated other legal processes, including the extradition process against Mr Assange. Despite having been imprisoned, fiscally blockaded, and placed under house arrest for over 650 days, Mr. Assange has not been charged with an offense in any country.

Baltasar Garzón revolutionized the international justice system two decades ago by issuing an international arrest warrant for the former Head of State of Chile, Augusto Pinochet. His actions spearheaded the fight against impunity in Latin America and in the rest of the world. The judge has expressed serious concerns regarding the lack of safeguards and transparency whith which actions are being taken against Julian Assange, and the harassment he is being subjected to which has irreparable effects on his physical and mental wellbeing. The threats against his person are further aggravated by the complicit behaviour of the Swedish and U.K. governments, who are wrongfully abrogating his rights.

===== Spanish ======

El  Juez español, abogado y jurista Internacional Baltasar Garzón asumirá la dirección jurídica del equipo de abogados que representa a Julian Assange y Wikileaks. El Jurista, celebró una reunión privada con Julian Assange en la sede de la Embajada Ecuatoriana en Londres, para discutir una nueva y contundente estrategia jurídica que buscará defender tanto a WikiLeaks, como a su fundador, de los abusos de proceso y de arbitrariedades del Sistema Financiero internacional que pondrán de manifiesto el alcance real de la operación contra Julian Assange, en la que el proceso secreto que se le sigue en los Estados Unidos de América supone una clara amenaza que vicia cualquier otro proceso, como el que motiva la petición de extradición para ser cuestionado en Suecia, solicitud que aparece como mero instrumento para conseguir aquella finalidad.

Baltasar Garzón, que hace dos décadas revolucionó la justicia internacional al hacer efectiva una orden de aprehensión contra el ex Jefe de Estado chileno Augusto Pinochet, lo que permitió importantísimos avances en la lucha contra la impunidad en Latinoamérica y el mundo entero, mostró su grave preocupacion por la ausencia de garantías con las que se está actuando contra Julian Assange y el acoso al que está siendo sometido, con consecuencias irreparables para su propia salud física y mental. Riesgo que se ha agravado con la actitud coactiva del gobierno británico que, sin ofrecer garantías creíbles respecto de Suecia y los Estados Unidos, está moviendo todos los resortes para acabar con una situación que políticamente le perjudica.

1. SUMMARY: That's how Washington Post columnist David
Ignatius described INR. Ignatius wrote that INR owes
success to "a culture that supports dissent -- and
expertise...When that kind of intolerance for mediocrity
is shared throughout the intelligence community, we'll
know that reform has really begun." Ignatius advised,
"people should take a careful look at one of
Washington's hidden jewels -- the State Department's
tiny Bureau of
Intelligence and Research." We urge bidders to follow
Ignatius' advice and take a close look at INR's Foreign
Service positions opening in summer 2010.

Wikileaks Join NATO Attack On Syria.

Washington DC, 12 July 2012 - As the NATO alliance inches closer to a military attack on Syria, a new front in the destabilization of the Damascus government has been opened by the intelligence agencies of the Western powers. The vehicle chosen by the CIA and its allies for this new assault is once again the shadowy limited hangout operation calling itself Wikileaks, and its chief spokesman, the Australian Julian Assange.

On July 5, the Wikileaks website (which the US National Security Agency could cripple within minutes if it so chose) announced a two-month summer offensive against the Baath party government of President Assad based on the release of some 2.43 million e-mails by Syrian government officials, politicians, and companies doing business with the Syrian government, generated between August 2006 and March 2012. About 400,000 emails are in Arabic, and some 70,000 are in Russian.

Assange and his staffers left no doubt that the goal of this new document dump was to discredit the Syrian government, and even more to harass companies in the NATO sphere who are working as contractors for Damascus.

A case in point is the Italian defense contractor Finmeccanica, which was accused based on these e-mails of supplying 500 radios to the Syrian police through Selex Elsag, a subsidiary company. The Italian radical chic newsweekly L’Espresso, owned by financier Carlo de Benedetti, attempted to make these dealings into a scandal under the headline “Finmeccanica helped the dictator.” De Benedetti is a predatory speculator with intelligence links who operates under left cover, very much in the manner of George Soros. The goal of Wikileaks is obviously to incite public opinion against Finmeccanica and similar companies, and to mobilize parliamentary witch hunts against them for supposedly contributing to repression in Syria. If Syria’s western equipment suppliers can be shut down, then the weapons shipped into Syria by Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and the other Gulf monarchies through the CIA distribution network based in southern Turkey could tip the balance in favor of anarchy. Wikileaks is thus complicit in the violent overthrow of the Syrian government by the NATO-backed death squads....read more

Wikileaks : Whay Have They Removed The Chile - Syria Cables ?

This was the link to the cables on Chile and Syria ; there is now a trumped up explaination as to why the link can no longer be found !

It would appear we are only to view the latest 'SyriaFiles' ...questions are being asked as to what is the  ASSANGE/ WIKILEAKS agenda  ?

Julian #Assange Show:Anwar Ibrahim Interview

Published on 3 Jul 2012 by
Julian Assange speaks to the leader of the Malaysian opposition - Anwar Ibrahim. As a rising internal rival to the former Prime Minister Mahathir, Anwar was imprisoned for 5 years after being smeared with sex allegations. As a result of a popular campaign in 2004, his conviction was overturned and he was released from prison. In 2008, he was again targeted for sex crimes allegations, he won the case earlier this year. With Malaysian elections looming with Anwar tipped to win, he has now been charged with unauthorized assembly. If found convicted, he will be prevented from running. Assange talks to him about how he has survived and what he sees as the future of Asia and the West.

#Assange: #Guardian Backstabbers Backpeddle.

The worst offender of course was David Leigh himself a confessed phonehacker who went after Rupert Murdoch for the same 'crime'. Hypocrite!

The Guardian crawls.

There don't appear to be many aspects of Julian Assange's life and work that haven't attracted controversy. His decision to seek the shelter of the Ecuadorean embassy and apply for asylum in that country to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he faces allegations of sexual assaults against two women, is just the latest twist in an extraordinary life story.

He is a man who inspires strong feelings in those who meet him. His friends and admirers are indefatigable while his detractors groan with each fresh turn of the story. The Guardian worked closely with Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, to publish a series of stories based on the five significant tranches of material released from the mass that was leaked to WikiLeaks allegedly by US intelligence analyst Bradley Manning.

The Guardian's involvement began with the release of the Afghan war logs. In this, and the next two releases, WikiLeaks co-operated with the Guardian, which brought together a group of papers, including the New York Times, to assess and edit the material. By the time of the release of the final batch – the Guantánamo files – the relationship between Assange and the Guardian and the NYT had foundered, although Alan Rusbridger, the Guardian's editor-in-chief, still supports many of the principles of WikiLeaks and would support Assange in any attempt by the US to extradite him over the release of the cables.

One particular aspect of the reporting of Assange's fight against extradition continues to cause problems. It is always important to report with precision when dealing with criminal allegations. They are often complex and a slip may be unfair to the accused or even wreck a trial, rendering the newspaper liable for prosecution. When dealing with unfamiliar laws and procedures of another country, journalists have to be even more careful.

Assange's situation is complicated. His fight to avoid extradition has gone all the way to the supreme court where yet another twist meant that he had time to consider an appeal to the European court of human rights in Strasbourg. In some stories and comment articles Guardian writers have stated that Assange "is facing charges" in Sweden, which Assange claims is inaccurate. This has led some of his supporters to think that the Guardian is carrying out a vendetta.

One reader wrote: "As a committed Guardian reader of 40 years, I recognise the futility of what I'm doing but feel I should make the effort. I wish to register my disappointment at the tone and content of the reporting on Julian Assange, who has not yet been found guilty of anything, and for whom extradition to the US from Sweden is a genuine and serious threat."
It is not a vendetta, it is the difficulty of reflecting the way Swedish law works. Joshua Rozenberg, a Guardian columnist and former legal affairs correspondent of the BBC, said that "facing charges" meant "facing the prospect of being charged". He adds: "Victims make allegations; prosecutors bring charges if appropriate. The fact that Assange had not been formally charged did not affect the requirement he faced to deal with the charges the prosecutor had specified, either by responding to her questions or in court. He could not have been extradited to face allegations."

However, it is a major plank of Assange's appeal against extradition to Sweden that he has not been formally charged. He complained to the Press Complaints Commission in January 2012 that it was inaccurate for publications, including the Guardian, to state that he "faced charges" but his complaint was rejected. The PCC adjudication stated it was not in dispute that he had not been formally charged but the articles under complaint "had alluded to 'charges' more generally".

However, the PCC said in the last line of its adjudication that it would "take the opportunity to draw the complainant's concerns in this respect to the publications' intentions". Since then the Guardian's reporters and writers have largely referred to the "allegations" or "accusations", but there have been instances where the term "facing charges" has been used.

Whatever the wider meaning, for the sake of clarity, consistency and fairness, the Guardian's head of news has sent a note to editorial staff to state that in future all copy will refer to allegations or accusations.

#Wikileaks: The #UFO Leaked Cable. (Nov.9th 2005)


A source from within the inner circle of the Wikileaks team has confidentially leaked to All News Web the content of a State Dept cable, concerning UFO affairs, that Wikileaks has declined to upload onto their website.

The cable states: "It is critical all embassy staff understand that they are not to discuss under any circumstance concerns DOD has with UFOs entering orbit, once again the seriousness of this matter cannot be overstated"

The cable was sent on 9 November, 2005 by the State Dept to a diplomat connected to the US embassy in Kiev, Ukraine. As it implies, the State Dept was concerned with diplomats with loose tongues chatting about UFOs at cocktail parties and conceding that the US does allocate resources to the matter.

Some say this is a hoax but then Gary McKinnon, wanted by the U.S. for his interest in UFO's

Julian Assange : Without Sanctuary Julian Faces U. S. Torture - It Is A Done Deal.

Published on 30 Jun 2012 by

With his life and liberty at stake, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is to stay under the protection of the Ecuadorian government while his asylum appeal is considered, says lawyer Susan Benn from the Julian Assange Defense Fund.

Ray McGovern, a former CIA analyst, talks to RT. He says unless Assange is granted asylum, US prosecutors getting their hands on him is a done deal. And considering the "draconian espionage act of 1917" under which he would be tried, getting to Ecuador becomes a life and death matter for the WikiLeaks founder.

Julian #Assange : #US Extradition - David Hemler, the 49-year-old US Air Force vet who went AWOL nearly 30 years ago, might soon be sent from Sweden to the States.

Sex crime allegations could soon lead to Julian Assange being extradited to Sweden where his supporters fear authorities will hand him over to American officials investigating his WikiLeaks site. If that’s the case, then Assange isn’t alone.

While the exact future of Julian Assange remains unknown to just about everyone — including Swedish prosecutors demanding his extradition, American investigators asking questions about his role with WikiLeaks, his family in Australia and the government of Ecuador where he is seeking asylum — America is already asking for Sweden to send over someone else for them to scold. David Hemler, the 49-year-old US Air Force vet who went AWOL nearly 30 years ago, might soon be sent from Sweden to the States.

Helmer made headlines earlier this month when the servicemen long-assumed dead by his biological family came clean with his whereabouts — disillusioned by America’s foreign policies, he fled the Air Force in 1984 at the age of 21 and hitchhiked to Sweden, where he has since lived comfortably under an assumed identity and has fathered three children....read more


Julian #Assange: #Ecuador -Video - Julian Will Remain In The Ecuadorian Embassy.

The founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, has refused to comply with a police request to leave the Ecuadorian embassy in London and surrender himself.

He has been inside the embassy since last week seeking asylum as part of his bid to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he is wanted for questioning about alleged sex offences.
Susan Benn from the Julian Assange Defence Fund told reporters: ''Julian will remain in the embassy under the protection of the Ecuadorian government''.

EO 12958 N/A
1. Summary. EU Justice and Home Affairs ministers met informally in Lisbon October 1-2.

 An embassy officer attended to follow discussion of such topics as the elimination of land and sea travel barriers in December, the establishment of a counternarcotics analysis and operations center, the submission of a package of counterterrorism proposals by Vice President Frattini in November, the submission of a package of border control proposals by Frattini in February, and the establishment of a missing children alert system based on the U.S. Amber Alert. End summary.

Justice and Home Affairs Informal Ministerial
2. European Union Justice and Home Affairs (JHA) Ministers held an informal ministerial in Lisbon October 1-2, chaired by Portuguese Minister of Internal Administration Rui Pereira and Minister for Justice Alberto Costa. Representatives from relevant EU institutions, Vice President of the European Commission Franco Frattini, and the Turkish Minister for Justice Mehmet Ali Sahin also participated. An embassy officer attended the proceedings to hear public statements first-hand and to engage attendees on the margins.

3. As a lead-in to the meetings, on September 30 participating member states formally signed the protocol to establish the Maritime Analysis and Operations Center - Narcotics (MAOC-N). Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Ireland, Netherlands, and the United Kingdom founded the center to share intelligence and coordinate counternarcotics efforts. The U.S., though not formally a member, has liaison officers assigned to the MAOC.

4. Also on the agenda but in advance of the informal ministerial meetings, the Spanish and Portuguese Interior Ministers held a bilateral meeting in which they established a task force to coordinate counterterrorism investigations and prosecutions.

 Pereira noted that although bilateral cooperation had long existed, the task force was established to be more proactive in regard to investigations and cooperation. During the proceedings, Portugal also signed a bilateral agreement with Malta to resettle refugees in Portugal that are currently resident in Malta.

Home Affairs - Prevention of Terrorism and Border Management
--------------------------------------------- ---------------
5. SIS/VIS: Frattini and Pereira both noted that by Christmas, all land and sea barriers in the Schengen area will be removed for nine participating Schengen states, Cyprus having requested an extension. Air travel barriers, he said, would be removed in March.

 Noting that the Schengen Information System (SIS) has succeeded in its testing phase, Frattini suggested that the formal decision to implement the new rules will be taken in November.

Frattini also suggested that the EU must have an entry-exit register complete with biometric identifiers. This would, he opined, help manage overstays as well as be a useful data source for security services. Additionally, he noted that various databases and security systems need to be integrated and expanded to include travelers without visas. Moreover, such a European surveillance system must be accessible to local law enforcement. An aide to Frattini said that this package of proposals would be submitted to the college of Commissioners in February.
6. PNR/ETA: Frattini said he would submit a terrorism package to the Commissioners November 6 that includes a proposal to establish formally an EU-wide Passenger Name Recognition (PNR) system.

He noted that the requirements demanded by U.S. negotiators convinced him that the European security services should have access to the same kind of information.

Pereira and German Minister Schauble suggested that, in addition to the intelligence value, a PNR system would allow the EU to negotiate with the U.S. on an equal footing and would allow for balanced cooperation.

Pereira said he would also support a PNR for intra-European flights.

 Schauble said further discussion on that point would be needed.

 Frattini and Schauble both noted that electronic travel authorizations (ETA) are useful not just for improving security, but also improving the customer service at airports.

With ever increasing crowds at airports, Schauble noted that it is in a traveler's interest to participate in a voluntary ETA program.

7. Internet: Frattini will also submit a proposal to punish misuse of the internet. This will not, he stressed, be a limit on the freedom of expression. Pereira noted that the proposal would be limited to taking down sites that specifically incite terrorism or provide instruction in how
LISBON 00002605 002 OF 002to commit terrorist acts
. Indeed, added Frattini, the EU already has a regulation that prohibits transfer of illegal data on the internet, without causing concerns of limitation of freedom of speech.

This proposal, he continued, would only add the specific mention of terrorism. Such an update, he opined, is a good example of why the EU needs regularly to review and update its bodies of law.

8. Conspiracy: Pereira noted that Italian Minister Amato suggested that the ministers consider developing an EU agreement to incorporate conspiracy statutes into existing law.

 Current legislation is directed towards formal terrorist organizations, which does not adequately address current realities. Italy, and a few other states, punish conspiracy without being part of a formal organization; Pereira and Frattini each enthusiastically supported the idea that the EU consider the question.

9. Pruhm Treaty: Slovenian Interior Minister Dragutin Mate suggested that, agreement being reached, it was incumbent on Slovenia to develop the technical handbooks for implementation.
10. e-Justice Portal: Costa issued a statement that ministers agreed that the EU should have an information technology system to facilitate access to member states' judicial systems and registry systems. Member states will compile best practices on IT and regularly review performance.

11. Missing Children Alert: Frattini used the well-known case of Madeleine McCann, a missing British girl, to lay out his intention to develop an EU wide alert system for missing children. Frattini specifically and repeatedly mentioned the Amber Alert system in the U.S. as the model that the EU needed to copy. In addition, the e-Justice Portal, according to Costa, will include a list of missing children and direct users to appropriate Hague Convention resources.

12. Child Protection: Costa also noted that the ministers agreed to expand the role of the European Mediator for international child abductions and to support the strengthening and implementation of laws related to child protection. Hoffman

No Extradition For Paedophile : U.K. Warped Justice - A System That Protects Paeodiphiles.

Did this man, Dr.David Payne rape and murder Maddie McCann ? Her parents have no interest in finding out if their closest friend is involved with their childs disappearance NOR oddly enough do Scotland Yard!


Maddie McCann 'victim of an abduction claim her parents' by a paedophile claim her parents ! When questioned on sightings of Madeleine her father smirks before answering. All nine in the group have lied on what happened to this small child, their police statements bear witness to this fact.

Secret footage taken of Madeleines father, Gerry McCann, SIX days after he claimed abduction. We know by this time he had the British Government bowing to his demands and assisting the group of NHS doctors including the then PM Tony Blair ...Gordon Brown, once he became PM, took over and continued to aid the group ( the tapas 9) with complete protection which included meddling in the Portuguese investigation. Brown ordered Clarence Mitchell to handle PR in Portugal as the focus on the parents and their involvement became more obvious.

Jessica Schaefer lives in Minnesota she is only one of the paedophile victims of Sullivan.

Paedophile spared extradition to US on human rights grounds

Warped: Notorious paedophile Shawn Sullivan, left, won his appeal against extradition to the U.S. yesterday.  The same court ruled that Asperger's sufferer Gary McKinnon, right, should be sent to America despite evidence he may kill himself
High Court judges said a sex offenders' programme in Minnesota may have breached his human rights.
Last night Gary’s mother, Janis Sharp, condemned the decision.
‘It’s a scandal this man has had his extradition refused by a British court, while my son who has been declared unfit for trial and at extreme risk of suicide by a Home Office-approved expert in assessing risk is still waiting,’ she said.

‘Ten years have passed waiting for his trauma and torment to come to an end.’
David Bermingham, who was extradited to the US as one of the NatWest Three, said: ‘This case reveals at its starkest the idiocy of our extradition laws.
‘It is shocking we continue to see a string of extradition cases of ordinary British citizens who have ostensibly none of the human rights that are now being invoked for a heavyweight criminal.’
The UK cannot boot out Sullivan, who is a joint US/Irish citizen, because of his EU citizenship and his marriage to a Briton – a senior Ministry of Justice official he met in jail.

He is wanted by the authorities in Minnesota over claims he raped a 14-year-old girl and molested two 11-year-olds almost two decades ago.
An arrest warrant was issued in 1994 when a woman and her cousin accused him of exposing himself and sexually assaulting them in the city of Eagan.
His 14-year-old alleged victim claims he plied her with alcohol and raped her when she passed out in the back of his car. Sullivan fled to Ireland where he married.
While his Irish wife was pregnant, he was accused of sexually assaulting two 12-year-old girls in Dublin.
He pleaded guilty but walked free with only a five-year suspended jail sentence, the Irish authorities being unaware of the US allegations.
Sullivan then used his Irish ancestry to obtain an Irish passport in the name Sean O’Suilleabhain and went on the run around Europe for more than a decade.
In 2007 he was arrested in Switzerland – but not detained – when he used an identity card with the original spelling of his name.

The following year, Interpol added him to its most-wanted list and, when he moved to England, he was picked up by the Metropolitan Police Service in June 2010.
He was living in Barnes, South-West London, with Sarah Smith, a 34-year-old Ministry of Justice policy manager.
Since then he has been fighting extradition under a UK-US treaty that usually makes it very hard for any case to be thrown out.
However his lawyers argued that sending him to Minnesota would be unfair because he might be placed on a life-long sex offender programme without even being convicted.
On June 20, Lord Justice Moses and Mr Justice Eady agreed, saying there was a real risk Sullivan would be subjected to an order of civil commitment in ‘flagrant denial’ of his human rights.
Article 5 of the Human Rights Act gives the right to liberty, unless removed by fair legal process.
Lord Justice Moses said a criminal conviction was not necessary for enlistment on the programme – credible evidence of misconduct would do.
Sullivan’s lawyer, Ben Brandon, said no one had been taken off Minnesota’s sex offender treatment programme since it was revised in 1988.
The two judges gave the US government a last opportunity to provide an assurance that no commitment order would be made.
No such undertaking has been received and consequently Sullivan’s appeal under the 2003 Extradition Act was allowed yesterday.
Aaron Watkins, appearing for the US government, had told the court that although Sullivan did not meet the programme’s criteria there was no guarantee he would not be put on it.
Sullivan was on remand in a category A prison in November 2010 when he wed Miss Smith in a civil ceremony witnessed by two prison officers.

A judge later bailed Sullivan with an electronic tag. He will now be freed without any tag, or supervision, and will be required only to go on the sex offenders register.
A Home Office spokesman said: ‘The Court has found in this specific case that the possibility of civil commitment in Minnesota, following any custodial sentence, would breach Mr Sullivan’s human rights.
‘The US has declined to provide assurances that he would not be subject to civil commitment. That is a matter for the US.
‘This aspect of Mr Sullivan’s appeal was not against the decision of the Secretary of State to sign the extradition order.’
British courts have ruled 46-year-old Gary from North London – wanted by the Americans for hacking into military computers while searching for evidence of ‘little green men’ – could be bundled off to America.
His case is under review by Home Secretary Theresa May, who is examining medical evidence about his condition.
