 WikiLeaks founder Assange arrested Bolivian President: He was persecuted


World Wide Web reported today that Bolivian President Morales condemned the arrest of WikiLeaks founder Assange by British police, according to a report on Russia Today. He said Assange was persecuted for exposing human rights violations, murders of civilians and diplomatic espionage in the United States.

We strongly condemn Assanges detention and violation of freedom of speech, Morales said on Twitter Thursday. We stand in solidarity with this brother, who has been persecuted by the United States Government for exposing human rights violations, murders of civilians and diplomatic espionage in the United States.

In addition, Venezuelan President Maduro also condemned Assanges arrest, calling it a brutal decision. In a statement, Venezuelas foreign ministry said Assange was a victim of political persecution because he exposed the darkest and most sinister war of regime change in the United States Empire in the world. In particular, the massacre of civilians and flagrant violations of human rights in Iraq.

British Prime Minister Teresa May welcomed Assanges arrest, saying to Parliament that it proves that no one is above the law. The Home Secretary, Jarvid, subsequently made the same statement. However, Dianne Abbott, the shadow interior minister and Labour MP, expressed different views.

The crime of Julian Assange and WikiLeaks is that they exposed the bloody attacks of the US military on Iraq, she wrote on Twitter. The state has no right to kill at will, and whistleblowers are good for us all.

According to reports, on Thursday morning, WikiLeaks founder Assange was taken away by British police from the Embassy of Ecuador in London. Assange himself entered the Embassy of Ecuador in London in June 2012 to seek asylum. He has not stepped out of the Embassy for seven years.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the U.S. Department of Justice is preparing to prosecute Assange, who may be extradited to the United States for trial. The United States accused Assange of conspiring with former U.S. military intelligence analyst Manning in March 2010 to help Manning crack the password of the U.S. Department of Defenses classified computer system. RT said the incident was one of the biggest leaks in history. The leaked documents included more than 251,000 diplomatic cables and materials detailing U.S. war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan. Assange will be tried on May 2 for committing bail violations in 2012. In addition, the United States Department of Justice must submit an extradition request to the British Government by 12 June. Both Assanges lawyer and WikiLeaks editor-in-chief said they intended to resist the extradition request. Source: Global Times - Global Network.
