If it were to happen anywhere in Asia or Africa, the West would be screaming their heads off calling it blatant violation of human rights, state abuse of the free flow of information and judiciary running a kangaroo court.
What happened to Julian Assange?
Was he given a fair hearing? Did the English court adhere to the rules of law and natural justice.What happened to the English legal doctrine that protects against arbitrary exercise of power by ensuring fair play.
The English legal system clearly stated that no accused, or a person directly affected by a decision, shall be condemned unless given full chance to prepare and submit his case and rebuttal to the opposing party's arguments.
Why was Assange refused bail for a presumptuous and highly suspicious rape charges that manifested only after the release of Wikileaks documents to the world that have embarrassed the United States government and its allies.
The American are known for hiding wrongdoings of its military in war zones.
The famous "My Lai Massacre" during the Vietnam War was one such atrocities that prompted widespread outrage throughout the world.Mass murder conducted by a unit of the U.S. Army on defenceless civilians majority of whom were women, children and the elderly.Many of the victims were sexually abused, beaten and tortured.
If you believe in American justice than you may be the greatest fool and an incurable idiot.Of all the soldiers involved only one was convicted and the sentence ??? .....3 years under house arrest.
These are the very same people who killed innocent civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan, trampled on the Geneva Convention on the treatment of prisoners whom they conveniently decide to brand as terrorists instead of as prisoners of war and accorded them the rights under the Convention.
These are the same people who make noise about the sodomy trail of Anwar Ibrahim and accused Malaysia of violation of human rights.
Was Assange given sufficient chance to present his case before he was found guilty by the court by denying him bail for what normally is a bailable offence. Was his crime any worse than murder where if the police or court deemed fit, bail was never denied. Many suspected rapists have been released on bail while awaiting their court cases.What makes Assange's case any different from the rest?
Assange has blown wide open to the world the cloak of secrecy, hypocrisy and double standards of the Western powers and he'll have to pay a heavy price for his intrusion into their secret and wicked domain.
For going against the powers that be, their dirty works, their scandalous manipulations of third world leaders and world politics, murder and blatant abuse of human rights in the war zones and their murderous wars to re-colonise certain parts of the world under the pretext of fighting terrorism, even the prestigious English court has succumbed to the hegemonic influence of the United States. The pre-trail detention of Assangee is unconstitutional.Is he such a dangerous criminal that justified denial of his rights.
Even worse, in his recent hearing for bail the English court after allowing him bail refused to release him while awaiting appeal from the prosecution which they claimed would come in the next 48 hours.
Isn't it absurd that after having given bail you can still detain a person? Was it flawed English law or a judge flawed in judgement?
Most suspected rapists get bail but Assangee crime seems worse than normal rape cases. Look at what the English court decision on what should have been the rule of law...a man is innocent until proven guilty.... but Assangee, who voluntarily surrendered to the police, is considered worse than a dangerous felon.
Bail was set at $310,000.Assange must spend every night at his given address and will be electronically tagged so the police can track his movements, subjected to curfew every day from 10 p.m to 2 a.m and from 10 a.m to 2 p.m and is required to report daily to the police from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.The police have also taken away his passport as under the terms of his bail he is not allowed to travel abroad.
Now, you can scorn the British judges, for succumbing to America's pressure that Assangee is a dangerous threat to the world, a kind of rapist/terrorist who raped naked the most powerful nation on earth.
Obviously, looking at the detention order, Mr Assange is held for treason and not for rape?
Now, you can also laugh at the West for what is clearly their double standards and hypocrisy?
Sweden was only a tool to get Assange on what obviously was a politically motivated crime made against him.The real culprit is the United States.
We should thanks Julian Assange and Wikileaks for exposing the misdeeds, murders and atrocities committed by the the rich and powerful nations particularly the United States.
