Police sex file on WikiLeaks founder is itself leaked
Saturday 05 February 2011
A confidential police report detailing sexual assault allegations against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been leaked online, days before a hearing to decide whether he should be extradited to Sweden.
The file, which contains 100 pages of interview transcripts, investigatory notes and witness statements, was published anonymously on a file-sharing site.
Mr Assange, 39, is accused of sexually assaulting two women in Sweden last autumn. New revelations show forensic investigators have failed to find DNA on a condom which prosecutors allege Mr Assange deliberately broke during intercourse. A second alleged victim said she woke to find Mr Assange having sex with her, but let him continue although she knew he wasn't wearing a condom.
On Monday, Mr Assange will appear at Belmarsh magistrates' court for his hearing. His lawyers are expected to say Swedish prosecutors have improperly filed the case and it is a political prosecution.
