UNWGAD "ruling"[edit]

Given that the status of the UNWGAD decision is disputed, it would be more neutral to call it a finding than a ruling. (talk) 16:39, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

Julian Assange was accused for not wearing a condom when requested to do so, not rape. That is a lesser charge in the Swedish criminal system.

Report: Bahamian Police Investigating Julian Assange for Online Sexual Solicitation of an 8 Year Old Girl

Bahamian police confirm they have received such a report, but say they have no evidence on which to proceed.

Julian Assange cutof from internet for soliciting sex from an 8 year old girl

The owners of a dating website claim they hired Wikileaks founder Julian Assange as a programmer, but that he used the platform to solicit sex from an 8 year old girl. Assange says he was set up by Clinton partisans, and did nothing of the sort.

According to the website "Bipartisan Report," the Commonwealth of the Bahamas is investigating Assange on charges of allegedly soliciting sex from an 8 year old girl. The report says this is the real reason why Ecuadorian embassy cutoff internet access to Wikileaks founder.

"It seems a Canadian family on vacation in the Bahamas contacted the police on Sept. 28. They said Assange “sexually molested online” their 8-year-old daughter, while he was on the site," says Bipartisan Report. It is not entirely clear how a child can be molested online, but that is the allegation.

WikiLeaks denies the story. BuzzFeed says that while the Bahamian police did receive such a report, no one followed up on it and they are not investigating it because they have no victim, hence nothing to investigate.

It should be noted that WikiLeaks has in effect allied themselves with the Trump campaign and against the Clinton campaign, by the serial release of administration and State Department emails by and about Hillary Clinton and her campaign. decided to participate in the UN Global Compact program. This required its owners to release their records to the UN. Those records included any legal interactions with Assange. Supposedly, the UN informed them of the Bahamian allegations.

Immediately following the publication of this story, Wikileaks tweeted a link to a variety of documents in an attempt to show “an elaborate plot to falsely claim that Julian Assange received US$1M from the Russian government and a second plot to frame him sexually molesting an eight year old girl.”

In a statement, UNGC Communications Chief Carrie A. Hall explained the organization's decision to delist T&C: "The company was removed from the initiative for violating our Integrity Measures, including misuse of our name and logo. The document that reference is not a UN report. It was produced by, and solely represents their views. This document was removed from the UN Global Compact website for violating our integrity measures. We are not a party to the dispute between and Julian Assange."

Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal is reporting a different reason for the internet restriction:

Ecuador’s pulling the plug on Julian Assange’s internet connection highlighted the isolation of WikiLeaks, the organization he founded to expose the inner workings of governments and other powerful institutions.

Ecuador said Tuesday that it restricted access to private communications at its embassy in the United Kingdom, where Mr. Assange lives, on concerns that he was meddling in the U.S. presidential election.

In a statement, the Foreign Relations Ministry said the decision to cut off communications at its embassy was to prevent interference in the “internal affairs of other states.”

Some former allies and observers say that after four years confined to the Ecuadorean Embassy in London, Mr. Assange is alienating former supporters and undermining WikiLeaks’ relevance. They cite a series of leaks that they say supported Russian efforts to disrupt the U.S. election and carelessly promoted Turkish government documents exposing the personal information of thousands of ordinary citizens.

Julian Paul Assange, 45, is an Australian computer programmer, publisher and journalist. He is editor-in-chief of WikiLeaks, which he founded in 2006.

On November 2010, Assange was requested to be extradited to Sweden, where he is wanted for questioning concerning an allegation of rape. Assange denied the allegation and has expressed concern that he would be extradited from Sweden to the United States due to his perceived role in publishing secret American documents.

After exhausting his legal options in the United Kingdom, Assange did not surrender for extradition. Rather, he sought and was granted asylum by Ecuador in August 2012. Assange has since remained in the Embassy of Ecuador in London, and is unable to leave without being arrested for breaching his bail conditions.

This is the mysterious reason why Ecuadorian embassy cutoff internet access to Wikileaks founder

The United Nations' Working Group on Arbitrary Detention found, by a majority, that he has been "arbitrarily detained" and that his detention should be brought to an end. UK Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said the UN conclusion was "ridiculous", that the group was "made up of lay people", and called Assange a fugitive from justice.[7] On October 17, 2016, the state of Ecuador cut Assange's internet access in the embassy.
