I annat fall kan jag rekommendera juridikbloggens lysande öppna brev till Michael Moore
A little digression into the Swedish language. In Sweden we have a saying that has recently become popular. We talk about ”foliehattar”. A foliehatt is a hat made by tin foil. It is used by people who wants to protect the brain from mind reading and other intrusions, for instance by the Government. I am not sure, but I think that the hat may also be used to block out signals from a transmitter that has been hidden in someone’s teeth.
When a person is called a foliehatt it’s often because she’s a conspiracy theorist. The Assange case is a wet dream for the conspiracy theorist. Some talk about ”dark forces”, others about ”honey traps”, and you pitch in a little story about ”a conservative MP” that supposedly influenced the prosecutors in Sweden to change their position.
People forming these arguments we call foliehattar in Swedish. It is difficult to take such arguments seriously. Some of these arguments may turn out to be, in reality, true or somewhat true. But it seems unlikely. It seems unlikely that an advanced CIA/Mossad/SÄPO trap would use these kinds of accusations. They crimes that Mr. Assange has been accused of are not the kind of activities that would put you in jail for a very long time. It seems unlikely also for a lot of other reasons. Even the wikileaks people in Sweden seem to think so. But what do I know, maybe it’s all part of the plan.
Tyvärr är det så att Assange genom sin vägran att överlämna sig i händerna på den svenska rättvisan i allt snabbare takt sänker det skepp som heter Wikileaks. Den senaste delen i såp(p)an är en bok som med säkerhet kommer att bli film. Boken sägs ge 10 MKR, denna summa + pengen för filmrättigheterna kommer att göra Assange till en välbärgad man.
Tur att Openleaks inom kort seglar in på de sju informationshaven.
