With the recent UN panel deeming Julian Assange’s detainment “arbitrary,” Assange has still been unable to find his way to freedom so far, but this doesn’t mean that progress isn’t being made. Now, more than ever, alternative media has made efforts to dive deeper still into the case of Sweden vs. Assange; not surprisingly, the trail of information quickly demonstrates the fraudulence of his rape allegations, and the heavy amount of political espionage involved in the efforts to keep Assange detained. It has recently surfaced through documentation that Sweden, by deduction of the case versus the WikiLeaks founder, is clearly operating in Intelligence conglomeration with NATO, and has even been subsequently hiding this from Parliament.
Now, documentation reveals that a highly esteemed and awarded investigative journalist in Sweden who was a key voice in the actions against Assange, named Martin Fredriksson, was formerly an agent of SÄPO, Sweden’s security police. Taken from an article by The Indicter that helped break the story,
“The former SÄPO agent was significantly involved in the government’s efforts to ensure that the Swedish section of Amnesty International… would not advocate for the Swedish government to issue guarantees against the onward extradition of Julian Assange to the US, as called for by Amnesty International, Amnesty Sweden’s parent organization headquartered in London.”
This is just one of many revelations that have come out elaborating on this intimate connection between Sweden and NATO characterized by Sweden vs. Assange. Another example is the recent reporting done by Glenn Greenwald of The Intercept, stating that leaked Snowden documents reveal communication between NATO and Sweden regarding a prosecution against Assange. However, it should be addressed that The Intercept has heavy corporate funding from NSA-friendly Paypal/eBay owner, and so Greenwald’s overall authenticity could be considered speculative (something Assange himself has called into question about Greenwald). Additionally, the Snowden documents in question have not actually been released in their entirety, and remain in excerpts of articles by The Intercept.
In regards to Intelligence operatives in the journalism/activism community, it is important for all to know that they are real, and that they are around. However, empirical speculation could deduce that since these type of operatives are being used against Julian Assange, it gives credence to the Aussie’s authenticity for those alternative researchers still skeptical, yet nothing is set in stone. While Assange does seem to be getting closer to his freedom, it doesn’t seem like NATO and the Western Surveillance State are ready to give up the fight against WikiLeaks. Likely, they will never be ready, and with the complete lack of prosecution ability due to the lack of any discernible case, it is hard to imagine a quick resolution to this scenario.
