Fifth, almost entirely omitted from current media reporting is that the initial Swedish preliminary investigation in 2010 was dropped after the chief prosecutor of Stockholm concluded that “the evidence did not disclose any evidence of rape” and that “no crime at all” had been committed. Text messages between the two women, which were later revealed, do not complain of rape. Rather, they show that the women “did not want to put any charges on JA but that the police were keen on getting a grip on him” and that they “only wanted him to take a test”. One wrote that “it was the police who made up the charges” and told a friend that she felt that she had been “railroaded by police and others around her”.

His extradition should be denied by the UK

So, everything unfolded EXACTLY as Assange predictedfrom the beginning (and which right wingers dismissed as a conspiracy theory produced by a paranoid) with only the couple bits (Assange disappearing into the American gulags after a farce of a trial)

He should also be supported by his government, the Australian government, but he won't be. PM Scott Morrison & Co. will be very happy to see Assange disappear into the American gulags ( thanks, Richard Pearce) because a) they hate his guts and b) they are utterly in the pockets of the USA on this.

They didn't drop the charges because they believe he is innocent, he was just successful in hiding from the charges like a coward until it was too late to successfully convict him. I bet a lot of you are fans of Roman Polanski too.

It doesn't matter, he'll be paying for his crimes in the USA soon enough. I look forward to him 'disappearing into an American gulag'.
