I think he was given bail so that he can be assassinated on the outside. Too many questions will arise if he's whacked while in custody. I'm sure someone else has already thought of this.

I was under the impression Assange was the one who requested a solitary cell. This was also so he could get limited computer access, unless the details changed since they were released.

A court can confiscate a passport if the person they are dealing with is not a citizen of that country, and has the means / resourcea available to flee the country. If he were a citizen of the UK they could still collect his passport again if he has the resources or means to flee the country.

The attacks on private business by wikileaks supporters runs contrary to their stated goals. Its the act of a bunch of cowards to go after business who choose not to support Assange and his goal. Please provide evidence that these business were "forced" to shut down anything related to Assange.

It cracks me up that people will bitch about illegal actions of the US Government, yet justify ilegal actions in support of their own cause.

Assange is a twit who needs to go to jail a long time for his crimes, either for the sex crims or the illegal release of classified information. Anyone hacking into business on behalf of Asshat, err assange, should be charged as well for their criminal actions.

Telling the world is he is arrested he will release the insurance file password - By all means lets add some more charges onto it, namely blackmail / extortion.

How stupid do people have to be to to make an argument about law violations and how wrong it is, then turn around and do the exact same thing. While I beleive wikileaks supports these acts by people attacking companies, at least they are smart enough to deny knowing about it or asking for it, since it would move the charges into the realm of conspiracy.

Hypocritical much?

Seems there is a confusion in the courts that will be revealed to one and all 5:15pm UK time.

Seems to be something about the Swedish position on the case! some miss-information..

Yet another fup

OK..I'll say something.

Cheers for the info!

TBH, i think they denied him bail the first time around for two reasons, and neither had anything to do with flight risk.

Firstly, they wanted to have him at their disposal to interrogate him, and perhaps offer a deal to shut up.

Secondly, they wanted to gage the extent of public opinion and support for both Assange himself and the greater Wikileaks organisation in general.

They certainly have taken the opportunity to try and cut a gag deal with him, and I'd say they definitely got an answer to reason number two.

Demos in Spain, 700,000 signature 'Release Assange' petition (300,000 in just one hour signed, myself included) Russia calling for his release and suggesting him for a Nobel peace prize, and so on and on.

Now they know the strength of feeling around the whole planet, they have granted bail.

Good job too.

First of all, all this once again dosn't sum up... before they denied the first bail, there was people ready to give immeaditely 150K, now when 200k is needed they say its going to be long run to get 'em. Is J.A going to get money out of you all supporters and believers ?

that's a respite for his supporters and people who believe that people supporting truth are being suppressed by the powerful entities. i always believe there is another side to a story that people aren't aware of but as far as i know, i also think he shouldn't have been arrested on such charges, if they can't build a case for espionage or leaking govt confidential documents (and even if it is justified as some might claim, then it should apply to the media as well as they are equally contributing to spreading the information since these cables are on non-wikileaks sites too). moreover, he's been receiving death threats too due to all this...

Well, they are right back in the court and it is official, that the Swedes won't appeal.

No false info here so far.

(Despite that Xcathdra is back to present us his troll version of things...

Swedes have appealed agains the bail release. Assange will stay in gaol until the appeal is ruled on.

This whole thing stinks to high hell.

Never heard of 'If you can't beat them, join them'?

If an entire super-power government is blasé about flouting their own and international law, 'little people' fighting them on an equal footing is justified imo.

I used to quite respect your views, when i first started reading your posts...didn't always agree with them of course, but i did have respect for them...i don't any longer.

If you think anyone should go to jail for not wearing a condom during intercourse, or for having a condom malfunction even, you need your head looked at mate.

If you think highlighting illegality and treachery committed by those that then turn around and preach law and order to their citizens and the international community is a crime, again, you need to get a grip on reality.

You say you're a US police officer...do you believe a snitch should be sent to jail for coming to you and telling about a major fraud..or major drugs deal...or murder even. Would you request the snitch be sent to prison for reporting a crime?

It's the same thing WL is doing. Highlighting misdeeds and crimes is not a crime..it's a civic duty.

What's the latest campaign in the US...'See something, say something' isn't it? Well, Assange and WL saw something, and they are certainly saying something too!

You lot want to make your minds up, you either want people to report crimes or suspicions of crimes, or you don't!

I already clicked on the "source" for the EU Times article. I posted it to that thread. It's Sorcha Faal. So...
What next?

The President of the European Commission gave an intriguing response, when asked about wikileaks. The EU Commission has described the revelations as "freedom of expression" and a procedure that "our democracies" have to live with. Wikileaks, in their eyes, is integral to a free society.

United States lawmakers can forget about Assange arriving on their soil - I doubt the EU or the European Court of Human Rights will let him be extradited.
