In Saturday’s edition of The Guardian—one of the papers that has been on the regular receiving-end of WikiLieaks documents, including the latest US diplomatic cables--readers could read the full rape allegations against Julian Assange.

The article, based on ”police material held in Stockholm to which the Guardian received unauthorised access,” does not make for pretty reading:

One of the women, named in court as Miss A, told police that she had arranged Mr. Assange's trip to Sweden, and let him stay in her flat because she was due to be away. She returned early, on Friday Aug. 13, after which the pair went for a meal and then returned to her flat.

Her account to police, which Mr. Assange disputes, stated that he began stroking her leg as they drank tea, before he pulled off her clothes and snapped a necklace that she was wearing. According to her statement she "tried to put on some articles of clothing as it was going too quickly and uncomfortably but Mr. Assange ripped them off again". Miss A told police that she didn't want to go any further "but that it was too late to stop Mr. Assange as she had gone along with it so far", and so she allowed him to undress her.

According to the statement, Miss A then realised he was trying to have unprotected sex with her. She told police that she had tried a number of times to reach for a condom but Mr. Assange had stopped her by holding her arms and pinning her legs. The statement records Miss A describing how Mr. Assange then released her arms and agreed to use a condom, but she told the police that at some stage Mr. Assange had "done something" with the condom that resulted in it becoming ripped, and ejaculated without withdrawing.

When he was later interviewed by police in Stockholm, Mr. Assange agreed that he had had sex with Miss A but said he did not tear the condom, and that he was not aware that it had been torn. He told police that he had continued to sleep in Miss A's bed for the following week and she had never mentioned a torn condom.

Miss W. told the police she and Mr. Assange had visited the place where she worked and had then gone to a cinema where they had moved to the back row. He had kissed her and put his hands inside her clothing, she said.

That evening, Miss A held a party at her flat. One of her friends, "Monica", later told police that during the party Miss A had told her about the ripped condom and unprotected sex. Another friend told police that during the evening Miss A told her she had had "the worst sex ever" with Mr. Assange: "Not only had it been the world's worst screw, it had also been violent."

Mr. Assange's supporters point out that, despite her complaints against him, Miss A held a party for him on that evening and continued to allow him to stay in her flat.

On Sunday Aug. 15, Monica told police that Miss A told her that she thought Mr. Assange had torn the condom on purpose. According to Monica, Miss A said Mr. Assange was still staying in her flat but they were not having sex because he had "exceeded the limits of what she felt she could accept" and she did not feel safe.

The following day, Miss W phoned Mr. Assange and arranged to meet him late in the evening, according to her statement. The pair went back to her flat in Enkoping, near Stockholm. Miss W told police that though they started to have sex, Mr. Assange had not wanted to wear a condom, and she had moved away because she had not wanted unprotected sex. Mr. Assange had then lost interest, she said, and fallen asleep. However, during the night, they had both woken up and had sex at least once when "he agreed unwillingly to use a condom".

Early the next morning, Miss W told police, she had gone to buy breakfast before getting back into bed and falling asleep beside Mr. Assange. She had awoken to find him having sex with her, she said, but when she asked whether he was wearing a condom he said no. "According to her statement, she said: 'You better not have HIV' and he answered: 'Of course not,' " but "she couldn't be bothered to tell him one more time because she had been going on about the condom all night. She had never had unprotected sex before."


Commentary by the Ottawa Mens

Julian Assange is delusional. He claims that 50% of people compare him to Dr. Martin Luther King.

Martin Luther King was not a rapist. He did describe himself as a 87% S.L.U.T. King was most probably not at a high probability of having an STD or HIV.

King did not take the cowards route.
Assange fled Sweden two days before his agreed to interview with the Swedish Police who appear to have more than enough evidence to convict him of rape in any western country, not to mention Sweden.

The world is full of rapists, abusers, who abuse their power. Assange forced unprotected sex upon women while they only consented to protected sex. They did not consent to being terrorized with fear of having contracted HIV or an STD from a self confessed 87% S.L.U.T.

Assange shows his true colours, by his walk outs of interviews where he does not like the question that he can't answer without incriminating himself.

For all those backers of Assange, you should realize that you are backing one of the worst creeps on the planet.

While he has done an incredible amount of good by releasing some information, he has destroyed the lives of many not to mention disclose the names of Iraqi informants for whom such a release is a virtual death sentence. That shows why Assange should be charged with at least a form of criminal negligence.

Let's hope that the British Court put him on the first flight to Sweden just as soon as the passenger backlog is cleared at Heathrow.

Anyone who supports Assange should realize that they have backed the wrong horse.
