Julian Assange facing secret rape trial in Sweden

LONDON — Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder, must be extradited to Sweden to face accusations of sexual abuse, a British court ordered Thursday. Mr. Assange immediately said he would appeal the decision.

Judge Howard Riddle took just over an hour to issue a sweeping dismissal of the defense team’s arguments — from arcane technical points to dark suggestions that Mr. Assange would not receive a fair trial in Sweden and might even face extradition to the United States, imprisonment at the Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, prison and possibly death.

In Sweden these are secret trials:

An interesting profile of Anna Ardin, the Swedish University professor who accused Julian Assange of rape.

A Swedish forum reports that she is an expert on sexual harassment and the male “master suppression techniques”. Once, as she was lecturing, a male student in the audience looked at his notes instead of staring at her. Anna Ardin reported him for sexual harassment because he discriminated against her for being a woman and because she claimed he made use of the male “master suppression technique” in trying to make her feel invisible. As soon as the student learned about her complaint, he contacted her to apologize and explain himself. Anna Ardin’s response was to once again report him for sexual harassment, again because he was using the “master suppression technique”, this time to belittle her feelings.


  1. Wussy is a pussy word. According to Webster's online, the source is unknown but the first recorded usage was 1976. Some unknown pussy in 1976 wanted to say pussy but was afraid he would get in trouble with the feminists.

  2. What about the Blacks & Muslims immigrants who have been raping white women in Sweden?
