The rape of Julian Assange

Last week, I thought I had turned up a breaking news article about Julian Assange which might clear his name. It was in the Swedish newspaper, Expressen, and claimed that one of the women accusing Assange of rape, Anna Ardin, was previously friends with the gay activist police interrogator, Irmeli Krans. This was some months before going with Sofia Wilen to the police station where Krans worked (not the one near to where these women reside) to make a complaint concerning Assange and condoms. Much to my chagrin the article turned out to have been published in March 2011 yet tomorrow the date will read 1 September 2012. Expressen, like other annoying newspapers, has the habit of superimposing the current date over old articles. There should be a law against this practice because it makes seekers after the truth look like idiots. At least it would do if anybody in this country had heard of this story. What is most disturbing about this story is that it has been around for almost eighteen months, and the UK media have totally ignored it. I had not heard about it or I would not have called it breaking news. You had not heard about it. But there is a lot more you have not heard.

There has been plenty of coverage of the name of Julian Assange, usually mentioned in the same sentence as the word ‘rape’, yet nothing of those who have made it their business to entrap him. Even my M.P. Steve McCabe tweeted how he thought Julian Assange should be extradited to Sweden to face rape charges. Why have the media made no mention of the other story, the one that could clear Assange? Yesterday I watched Sophia Smallstorm’s video questioning the official version of what really happened to the World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001. It finishes with the following:

"This film was made to present possibilities and raise questions. We do not control our airwaves. We have consigned them to large corporations who create scripted soundbites serving as news." 

And this is what we are getting regarding Julian Assange, a brave man who has had to seek refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy to avoid extradition to the United States where he would be imprisoned indefinitely for leaking the shocking footage of US military personnel shooting innocent civilians and boasting about their conquests. It is true, we are getting scripted soundbites from the Zionist/Neocon media for nearly every news item published or broadcast today. This makes me ask if it is Julian Assange in need of rehabilitation, or is it the United States of America and its puppet the United Kingdom?

Let us look at the police statement taken by Irmeli Krans who now describes herself as a politician on Facebook. I suspect you did not know that much of this statement is available. I suspect you did not know that the original interrogation conducted by Irmeli Krans was in the public domain. This says more about who owns the media than the journalists themselves. They are not allowed to mention the names of Anna Ardin, Sofia Wilen or Irmeli Krans. Why not? Because if they did you might stumble across Sofia Wilen’s police statement  - which is quite graphic, and one which it might be added Sofia Wilen would not sign.

The interrogator, Anna Ardin’s friend, Irmeli Krans, has a politician’s way with making words say what is required at the time rather than making any serious attempt to tell the truth. The three belong to the same political party but Krans’ fabrication of the truth may be the reason why Sofia Wilen did not sign the original statement. Later it got even further embellished. There was an attempt to destroy the original statement but they found this was not possible. A week after Wilen's statement was taken Irmeli Krans made the following additions (in bold and underlined).

“When they went back in the bedroom Julian stood in front of Sofia and grabbed her hips and pushed her demonstratively down on the bed, as if he were a real man.”

“She lay awake a long time wondering what had happened and exchanged SMS messages with her friends. 
He lay beside her snoring. 

“At one point when he mounted her from behind, she turned to look at him and smiled and he asked her why she was smiling, what she had to smile about. She didn't like the tone in his voice.

I advise people to read the full statement to get the full context. Excuse me, but if Sofia is smiling while they are making love it does not seem like Julian Assange is raping her, or am I missing something? Wake up world. You are tools of the media!


  1. Thank you very much for posting this John. That message about media manipulation is so important to get across.

  2. Couldn't agree more Brian. Yet millions are duped!
