BREAKING: Assange Releases SMS Records Showing He Was Framed by Police in Rape Cases

Julian Assange, for the last six years, has been persecuted and held captive because of rape allegations; allegations that we have now found out are entirely fabricated by police.

Today marks the first time that Assange has gone public with his version of events surrounding the rape allegations for which he was arrested in 2010.

“Six years ago today, on 7 December 2010, I was handcuffed and locked into Wandsworth prison by order of a Swedish prosecutor, Marianne Ny,” Assange explains in a testimony released on Wednesday. “I had not and still have not been charged with an offence. The claimed grounds for my arrest and extradition without charge were so that Ny could question me. But it was not until six years later – three weeks ago – that I was questioned for the first time. I have decided to release my responses.”

In November, Assange was finally questioned aver a two-day period. However, as Assange points out, “my Swedish lawyer was excluded from the room in yet another breach of my basic rights.”

In a 19-page statement, also released on Wednesday, Assange details the events leading up to his persecution, including being railroaded by the American, Swedish, English and Australian governments.

You have subjected me to six years of unlawful, politicized detention without charge in prison, under house arrest and four and a half years at this embassy. You should have asked me this question six years ago. Your actions in refusing to take my statement for the last six years have been found to be unlawful by the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention and by the Swedish Court of Appeal. You have been found to have subjected me to cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment. You have denied me effective legal representation in this process. Despite this, I feel compelled to cooperate even though you are not safeguarding my rights. I refer you to my statement where all these questions were answered.

Not coincidentally, all of these allegations of Assange’s alleged sexual misconduct came after he began exposing the war crimes of the US government, after being leaked information by the heroic Chelsea Manning.

“I… could not believe my eyes when five days later I saw a headline in a Swedish tabloid that I was suspected of a crime and arrested in my absence. I immediately made myself available to Swedish authorities to clarify any questions that might exist, even though I had no obligation to do so.”

In his statement, Assange outlines the details of what he refers to as “consensual and enjoyable” sex with a woman known as ‘SW,’ which he says occurred four or five times.

Assange is accused of having sex with SW while she was asleep which is considered rape under Swedish law. However, on Wednesday, he released SMS messages showing that this did not happen. According to the statement:

Her behaviour towards me on the night in question and in the morning made it clear that she actively and enthusiastically wanted me to have sex with her. This is also shown by text messages “SW” sent to her friends during the course of the evening I was at her home and during that week, which the Swedish police collected from her phone. Although the prosecutor has fought for years to prevent me, the public and the courts from seeing them, my lawyers were permitted to see them at the police station and were able to note down a number of them, including:

  • On 14 August 2010 “SW” sent the following text to a friend: I want him. I want him. Followed by several more of similar content (all referring to me) in the lead-up to the events in question (13:05);
  • On 17 August “SW” wrote that we had long foreplay, but nothing happened (01:14); then it got better (05:15);
  • On 17 August, after all sex had occurred, “SW” wrote to a friend that it ”turned out all right” other than STD/pregnancy risk (10:29);
  • On 20 August “SW”, while at the police station, wrote that she “did not want to put any charges on Julian Assange” but that “the police were keen on getting their hands on him” (14:26); and that she was “chocked (sic shocked) when they arrested him” because she “only wanted him to take a test” (17:06);
  • On 21 August “SW” wrote that she “did not want to accuse” Julian Assange “for anything”, (07:27); and that it was the “police who made up the charges (sic)” (22:25);
  • On 23 August “AA” (the other woman whose case was dropped in August 2015) wrote to “SW” that it was important that she went public with her story so that they could form public opinion for their case (06:43);
  • On 23 August “SW” wrote that it was the police, not herself, who started the whole thing (16:02);
  • On 26 August “AA” wrote to “SW” that they ought to sell their stories for money to a newspaper (13:38);
  • On 28 August “AA” wrote that they had a contact on the biggest Swedish tabloid (12:53); and “SW” wrote that their lawyer negotiated with the tabloid (15:59);

“Without even bothering to take my statement, the Swedish Prosecution Authority broke its own rules and released my name to a tabloid newspaper,” explains Assange in his testimony. “Prosecutor Ny went on to produce more than 40 press releases and press conferences about me. As a result, to this day more than half a million webpages falsely conflate my name with the word “rape”.

Luckily for Assange, the world is waking up to his mistreatment. Just last week, the United Nations rejected an appeal by the U.K. of a previous ruling as “not admissible,” noting that London and Stockholm must end the ‘arbitrary detention’ of the WikiLeaks founder.

As Claire Bernish pointed out last week, Julian Assange has the unimpeded right to walk away from the Ecuadorian Embassy that has graciously provided asylum to the arbitrarily detained Wikileaks founder without fear of being arrested and taken into custody — at least theoretically.

Without grounds for further appeal, the British and Swedish governments are left without tangible justification for continuing to tacitly force Assange to remain secreted inside his haven in London.

But it remains to be seen what, precisely, will happen next.

  • aliswell

    Wow, the truth has finally come out. This is beyond disgraceful and I hope Mr. Assange litigates successfully against all those who helped persecute him under false pretenses for the past 6 years.

    • permalink

      How do we know this is **the truth**?

      • Daneel

        Cause it DIDN’T come from FAKE MSM…and it conforms to common sense and it explains the PERSECUTION complex of the people who are using ALL their powers to PUNISH him in ways they have NEVER punished ANYONE, particularly Muslims, for doing similar crimes, and it NOW appears it’s a crime he NEVER committed. THE authorities have been off the charts in their desire to TORTURE this man. If YOU are suggesting you NEVER make a decision with KNOWING all the FACT surrounding and issue you are a LIAR…NO ONE does that as YOU very well know. YOUR argument is 1/2 assssed in the extreme…grow the F up.

        • permalink

          So I am to believe that this Assange has stayed virtually locked up for six years and now all of a sudden he is innocent? Wtf didn’t he say so earlier? I think we have all been duped.

          • Daneel

            awww poor snowflake been DUPED….you need a timeout in your HATE space. And btw way…HE DID!

          • permalink

            I think you mis-understood what you think I might have said.

            **WE** have been duped because Assange could have cleared this up six years ago. I also find it rather odd that just because someone does not want to take some sort of “test”, that the aforementioned acts are considered rape.

            Also sorry to inform you I am from an era where the only “safe space” was a foxhole and a “trigger warning” was someone yelling **grenade**.

          • Daneel

            There are clowns like you in EVERY age group and TRY to get it right dear hero in your own mind…I said HATE SPACE…

            As for him clearing it up?…I think your reading comprehension, as you’ve already demonstrated, SUCKS! This is NOT a story I’ve even remotely kept up with but I am AWARE that all his efforts to clear this up would have got him put in a hurt locker…NOT something most INNOCENT people want to have happen to their lives. He’s been TARGETED politically and people in his position KNOW that the LAWS do NOT apply to them…his only hope IS to make a deal with the someone in authority that can override the vengeance of a system out of control. Your naivety has blinded you…seems you didn’t learn much about REALITY in that fox hole.

          • permalink

            So you needed to resort to name-calling…

          • Daneel

            When it’s the truth they aren’t names…they are shorthand realities. You ATTEMPT, and FAIL, to set people up by demanding they comply with YOUR sense of legitimacy, the definition of which YOU would NEVER require yourself to conform to. The double standard…the foundation on which ALL prejudice is based…think of it as the wellspring of all bias.

            Also…I couldn’t help but notice your penchant for the non sequitur, ya never really get around to responding DIRECTLY to any comment I’ve made…very revealing but boring in the extreme. A variation on the old debate tactic…when you CAN’T convince?…CONFUSE. Did I mention it’s the tactic of a person who has LOST the debate?

          • locksmithuk

            Name-calling -: the last resort of those bereft of intelligence or articulation.

          • locksmithuk

            “This is NOT a story I’ve even remotely kept up with”.

            Yup, I think that tells us all we need to know about your viewpoint and how it came to be ‘constructed’.

          • Daneel

            Very cogent response…short and POINTLESS.

          • locksmithuk

            Correct – there’s very little that one needs to say when you’re already doing a great job of being a buffoon. Please feel free to continue making a fool of yourself for the world to see, but it certainly won’t be on my time. I’m off to play with the grownups. See ya!

          • Daneel

            May someone mistake your morning wood for a log and toss it on the fire…oooooo….that’s gotta hurt! LOL…in keeping with redundancy…SEE YA! 😉

          • kugelmum

            I find it weird you have so much passion for this man. and reality is in a hole where you are stuck with you ranting.. everyone and everything you believe he has been targeted with especially politically can only be explained by his actions against himself. He is his worst own enemy and has aliened himself by making making from it and so is trapped ongoing unless he keeps making up fabricated information to increase his cash flow and uses the “targeted” evil bogymen so he can get attention. I hope he hasn’t pinned his hope on someone like you.

          • Daneel

            To quote you:
            “He is his worst own enemy and has aliened himself by making making from
            it and so is trapped ongoing unless he keeps making up fabricated
            information to increase his cash flow and uses the “targeted” evil
            bogymen so he can get attention”

            Can you say incoherent?

          • cole

            This is a info from transcripts the police and prosecuter suppressed from public knowledge, his lawyer finally saw them and came to this conclusion.

          • NoBS NoSpam

            Assange’s Lawyer is dead, since he was out in public. When was the last time you seen Assange wave from the Ecuadorian balcony?

          • erisx

            In point of fact I knew all this ‘new’ info about 4 years ago, I cannot cite where I read it but I did. I have known for at least that long that the ‘authorities’ latched onto these two women (one of whom ‘only wanted him to take a test’ ) as a means to their end: to capture him on behalf of the US. What a favor they would have done for the US if they’d managed it! That was their motive (Sweden like all countries will do things for those it wants favors from, you scratch my back I’ll scratch yours etc). It was a political machination and Julian, smart man that he is, recognized it immediately. The US wants to shut him up and PUNISH him to set an example for any other would-be ‘spy’.

          • fluffylucy

            He has been consistent in his claims all along. Even this release is not new as some of those SMS messages had been leaked by the press, early on. I personally find Assange’s personalty a little grating, but he has clearly been denied natural justice and due process. Whatever the truth of the actual case, losing your freedom for six years, without being charged and without an ability to legally defend yourself, is not OK.

          • permalink

            Well it appears to me, that he only has himself to blame.

            So much for **transparency** unless it is about his personal conduct.

            He could have cleared this up six years ago.

            SMH

          • fluffylucy

            He has tried to clear this up, but has not been given a chance to do so officially. He was arrested and an extradition sought, even though he hadn’t been charged with a crime. He was rightly reluctant to trust the Swedish investigators, who have clearly demonstrated a biased agenda. The Swedish authorities could have asked him for his side of the story 6 years ago, but have refused to do so, unless he surrendered his freedom first. Given the Swedish government’s previous cooperation with the illegal US program of “extraordinary rendition”, where people were kidnaped and flown to Sweden to be held in clandestine American prisons, then moved on to countries to be tortured, its easy to understand his fears. If they had a case against him, surely he would have been charged by now, and they would then have to show him any evidence they had against him, so that he could answer the charges.

            “people were kidnaped and flown to Sweden to be held in clandestine
            American prisons, then moved on to countries to be tortured, its easy to
            understand his fears”

            Our current president, Obama, does not have the balls to do something on that level. GWB did though.

          • fluffylucy

            How does torturing people require balls? As a matter of fact The US has put a far greater number of terrorists to death under Obama, than under both Bushes, both legally and illegally. This too doesn’t require balls.

          • permalink

            I stated, “Our current president, Obama, does not have the balls to do something on that level”.

            What part did you not understand? Maybe I need to type s-l-o-w-e-r…

          • fluffylucy

            As English does not seem to be your first language, I will endeavour to put this more plainly. It does not require any kind of courage (balls) to approve the torture of people you don’t know, by other people you don’t know, for reasons that you don’t fully comprehend.

            While I am no fan of your current president’s policies in the middle east, at least he managed to avoid filling up a prison camp in Cuba, with people that he couldn’t ever successfully prosecute, even in a rigged court.

          • permalink

            “at least he managed to avoid filling up a prison camp in Cuba”

            I know, he **droned** the bad guys instead. Which means you don’t even have to look the individual in the eyes. Obama is truly “ball-less”.

            Maybe we can agree on somethings.

          • fluffylucy

            Bush didn’t look Guantanamo detainees in the eye any more than Obama looked in those of the ones killed by drones. Either way, neither act requires any courage.

        Because the court will verify.
        Now how do we know the courts are truthful. Or the prosecutor? How do you know Sweden is a fair country?
        It is called “benefit of doubt”.
        Good luck with your questions.

    • Doctor Moebius

      Indeed, but he’s fighting an uphill battle (provided he’s legit and not a disinfo shill, or now dead – I’ve been trying to connect with him via email or phone at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, but his PR/ Publisher, Sunshine Press, hasn’t let that door open). Because if he’s the real deal, he’s fighting the ultra-wealthy, who can shape public opinion like the professional psychopaths they are (Joseph Goebbels); they can get him if they want (and may have already). I hope he’s well protected, and smarter than he appears (well, more strategic). He did allow himself to get played by a lady. And we know that gov’t can re-make history (“Might makes Right” – Look at the hypocritical, mendacious American history! They re-made the murder of JFK by multiple conspirators in the oil industry & Military Industrial complex, and pinned it on a single patsy; don’t get me started on the lies of the Traitor Bush and his administration re: their 9/11 plot!!) )

      I agree ..in a nation of deceit telling the truth is a treasonous act

    • Yvonne Massey

      Julian Assange has tried multiple times to give his statement. Even SW has admitted that the police forced her to make the accusations. He has now made his statement without the right to having his own counsel present. All of his rights were denied for years due to a threat of American extradition. To think that the American government (who is and has been after Assange for leaking sensitive information on the criminal activity of American government officials for years) has nothing to do with his situation today is delusional. Julian Assange has committed a crime against our government and he will have to face that (although I am glad he exposed the criminal activities of our very own government) but this entire situation has dragged on because our people want custody of him. In this article his statement is on the rape case which was already cleared and closed. Once Ny drops all charges, Assange will be facing a whole new threat which is the American Government and he will not be protected by the Ecuadorian Embassy. Wikileaks is a multi-national media organization and associated library founded by Julian Assange. He is not alone nor is Wikileaks the only media out there exposing criminal activity. Personally I have no problem with exposing governments, what I have a problem with is the judgement of those doing it. Some material should never be exposed while some should. Who are the people making those choices. Exposing Hillary and her pals was necessary. Hillary is a pure criminal with serious political ambitions that have made her put American lives as well as this country at risk.

      • Doctor Moebius

        I am amazed the way so many people think nowadays. Ideas are based on nothing but speculation, gossip, political affiliation (which is as bad as, if not worse than, religion!) or bravado.

        It’s just programmed beliefs, obviously from the Crass Media, the Propaganda Ministry (White House), and the MSM. So many of you have been brainwashed for so long, you probably don’t even recognize it when you see it. Take a minute, look yourself in the mirror, and ask your higher power to give you wisdom. Because adding unnecessary noise to an issue that needs serious discussion will only serve the power pervs pigging up of the place.

        May I help you by reminding you of what you wrote?

        “Personally I have no problem with exposing governments, what I have a problem with is the judgement of those doing it. Some material should never be exposed while some should. Who are the people making those choices.”

        A. “Personally, I” – tautology, because personally, the word “Personally” is unnecessary, since you are beginning your thought with I (what other person would “I” refer to? Hmm..)
        B. “I have no problem with exposing governments,… what I have a problem with is the judgement of those doing it.” So you DO have a problem with exposing governments if you don’t agree with the judgment of the person doing it. See?
        C. “what I have a problem with is the judgement of those doing it. Some material should never be exposed while some should.” So YOUR judgment is ok? How are you qualified to expose government data? And Why is that? (For me, I would make ALL data open, forbidding ALL secrets. Because secrets are for LIARS, and we don’t need no stinkin’ liars..)
        D. “Who are the people making those choices.” Who are the people making the decisions about what data gets released? Julian Assange is one, and you are another, if you had your way. The gov’t wouldn’t want either of you doing it. The people choosing what material to leak, versus what to de-classify, etc., are typically those on a committee in charge of the particular subject. That is the way representative government is supposed to work in a Democratic Republic. Dictators and Kings (and whistleblowers) are usually the individuals making decisions like this, in a vacuum. THANK GOD for whistleblowers; Thank God for WIKILeaks!

        Do you now have some idea about how you come across? Yes, your grammar needs improvement (and I’m not talking about typos, but a proofread here or there wouldn’t hurt you. Everyone is guilty of that – including me – but I’m not talking about being repetitive or missing the question mark, I’m talking about actually reading what you wrote to see if it makes sense. Do you understand why I say that you don’t?

    Although I believe Assange’s version rather than the police, this headline suggests that because Assange said something, it’s proof that it happened. One needs to think clearly to be free, click bait headlines ruins your credibility.

      Agreed, yet much of what is in his deposition is public record and has been confirmed true.
