Assange’s Christmas address from Ecuador embassy in London (Full Speech)

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on December 21, 2012

LONDON — WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange emerged for a rare public address Thursday, praising jailed U.S. soldier Bradley Manning in an address delivered from the balcony of the Ecuadorean Embassy in London.

Addressing supporters on a cold and wet English evening, the 41-year-old Australian looked fit and healthy despite half a year spent in trapped inside the small apartment he shares with Ecuador’s diplomatic staff.

He gave no hint that he would end the standoff, which has seen him spend six months as a fugitive from European justice, saying he was holed up at the embassy for fear of the U.S. investigation into his activities.

“While this immoral investigation continues, and while the Australian government will not defend the journalism and publishing of WikiLeaks, I must remain here,” he said.

While the U.S. Justice Department has launched an investigation into WikiLeaks’ spectacular disclosures of U.S. secrets, Assange is currently wanted by police over allegations of sexual assault stemming from a trip to Sweden in mid-2010.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn Has Bail Set At $1 Million – ABC News

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on May 19, 2011

A New York judge set bail today at $1 million for Dominique Strauss-Kahn, just moments after a grand jury indicted the former IMF chief on seven counts of sexual assault against a hotel chamber maid.

In addition to the $1 million bail, the judge demanded that Strauss-Kahn post an additional $5 million insurance bond and that the French politician agree to house arrest and 24 hour monitoring.

As Strauss-Kahn left court for another night in jail, he blew kisses to his wife and daughter who were in the courtroom.

The grand jury, which heard testimony Wednesday from his accuser, a 32-year-old chamber maid, gave the go ahead for Strauss-Kahn to be tried for allegedly forcing the women to submit to oral and anal sex. He is also accused of attempted rape.


As the grand jury returned its indictment, Strauss-Kahn, 62, who was one of the most influential men in global finance before his arrest, shuffled into a courtroom in a gray suit to request bail.

The man who had been a contender to be the next president of France was deemed a flight risk and denied bail earlier this week. Since Monday, he has been in protective isolation and on suicide watch in a 11 foot by 13 foot cell at New York’s notorious Riker’s Island jail.
