11. Bullshit
From your same article

both complainants admit to having initiated consensual sexual relations with Mr Assange. They do not complain of any physical injury. The first complainant did not make a complaint for six days (in which she hosted the respondent in her flat and spoke in the warmest terms about him to her friends) until she discovered he had spent the night with the other complainant.

Both complainants say they did not report him to the police for prosecution but only to require him to have an STD test. However, his Swedish lawyer has been shown evidence of their text messages which indicate that they were concerned to obtain money by going to a tabloid newspaper and were motivated by other matters including a desire for revenge.

What an insult to rape victims. No rape victim allows her rapist to stay in her flat for another week and throws parties for him.


Neither of the women's police statements dared complain of "rape". And you know why they didn't report him to the police for prosecution and one has now recanted her story while the rightwinger with CIA ties fled to Israeli occupied territories on a *Christian* mission?


Neither Arden nor Wiln complained to the police but rather sought advice, a technique in Sweden enabling citizens to avoid just punishment for making false complaints. They sought advice together, having collaborated and irrevocably tainted each others evidence beforehand. Their SMS texts to each other show a plan to contact the Swedish newspaper Expressen beforehand in order to maximise the damage to Assange. They belong to the same political group and attended a public lecture given by Assange and organised by them."

The first prosecutor dismissed this flimsy, transparent case until the US put furious pressure on them to get a new prosecutor and pursue this scurrilous charges.

Rape my ass.
