Is Julian Assange being smeared?
Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, who's website has over 70,000 classified documents related to the War in Afghanistan, has been charged with alleged rape in Sweden. But a new item of information strongly indicates the report may be nothing more than a false claim.

As reported earlier at, a translation from the Swedish tabloid Expressen claims that two women, one in her 20s and the other in her 30s, came forward to police. But read of the initial report in the tabloid Expressen indicates that the charges amount to heresay evidence without a real claim as there's no official report.

Here's the direct accounts from the translated version:
One woman he should have met last week between Saturday and Sunday in an apartment in Stockholm.
Other woman will he have met in Enköping on Tuesday morning, according to Expressen.
A source with insider tells how he met the women: - He met the victims through their assignments.

The prosecutor would at this stage only confirm the suspicion of rape, but would not provide more details: Women must be received by the City police in Stockholm yesterday to ask about their experiences with Julian Assange. They reportedly did not notify. Women are terrified and dare not participate. The police believe that in this case, the offender's position of power that women are afraid of. This raises for police and prosecutor, says a source.
A person close to the women says: The girls know each other and they both know that they have experienced the same thing. According to police, the prosecutor did not know the suspect Wikileaksgrundaren are visiting.

In other words, two women got together to point the finger at Julian Assange, but neither wants to file an official report. That means their claims are heresay evidence at best, if the Expressen is to be believed.

Stay tuned.

    This type of allegation is made when some person or group is in opposition to the government. Always the same, women and/or children have been harmed by some bad person or group. Although more often than not these are exaggerated charges. There is usually some truth. I just think it is shameful that these two things come sequentially.
