Journalist, Julian Assange, quote, justice

Julian Assange is detained in Britain for political reasons. This contradicts all democratic values and is unworthy of the long British legal tradition. The US wants to make an example. Instead of indicting the US war criminals, a journalist is being charged. Assange's arrest is an abuse of the judiciary and a serious blow to press freedom. Also read the assessment by Nils Melzer, UN Special Rapporteur on Torture, in Newsweek.
