Meanwhile, Assange appears to be resting comfortably in his newfound adobe, a London jail cell as the owner and founder of the site fights extradition to Sweden to face allegations of raping two former members of WikiLeaks.
The two female’s both locals claim they had sexual relationships with Assange and simply wanted to track him down in order to have him checked for any sexual transmitted diseases. Assange, apparently turned off his cell-phone to which the two women had been in contact with, causing both women to turn to authorities to locate him for voluntary testing.
Assange, said to suffer from paranoia along with other “disorders” apparently would not have been charged with any crimes had he simply complied with the former co-workers requests.
The latest round of reprisals by the WikiLeaks supporters came days after both MasterCard and VISA began refusing to process donation to the founder’s website.
Back in Sweden, authorities claim the current charges against Assange are not politically motivated squashing rumors the two young ladies pressing charges are in any way connected to the CIA, “[sic]… There is absolutely no link between what those two women have been through and WikiLeaks, the CIA, or the American administration,” adding the case has nothing to do with WikiLeaks.
Assange is due back in court December 14 whereas, his attorney plans once again to plea for bail for his client.
