Gil Crespy needs to do some thinking outside the box, and some research (Letters, June 12). Julian Assange: 1. stayed on in Sweden in an unsuccessful attempt to be questioned over these sexual assault allegations (he has not been charged); 2. has consistently and continually offered to be questioned by video link / via the Metropolitan Police in London (or by any other practical method) since his return to the UK – these attempts have been refused; 3. has spent more than 500 days under house arrest, without charge, and without any assistance whatsoever from the Australian government; 4. Is a fearless whistleblower who has done more than anybody in recent times to expose the brutal machinations of, in particular, the US government.
Conclusion? These allegations are a cynical setup designed to facilitate the extradition of Julian Assange to the US from Sweden, to face retribution for revealing the truth. Wake up!
