Hurtig: Ardin and Wilén Had Hidden Agenda
Asked permission to testify in London.
STOCKHOLM (Radsoft/Rixstep) — Solicitor Björn Hurtig says Anna Ardin and Sofia Wilén deliberately colluded to fabricate allegations against Assange and that the documents in the case prove it. Hurtig asked permission to testify in London on Tuesday. This according to the Mail on Sunday.
'I've Seen the Proof'
Echoing what Australian barrister James Catlin already revealed, Hurtig says he's now seen the documentation in the case and that it's obvious it's concocted and a collusion - and that at least one of the girls had 'big expectations' for her relationship with Assange.
[Note: false accusations of rape run rampant in Sweden, carry a two-year prison sentence, but are investigated rarely if at all.]
'From what I have read, it is clear that the women are lying and that they had an agenda when they went to the police, which had nothing to do with a crime having taken place.'
'It was, I believe, more about jealousy and disappointment on their part. I can prove that at least one of them had very big expectations for something to happen with Julian.'
'If I am able to reveal what I know, everyone will realise this is all a charade. If I could tell the British courts, I suspect it would make extradition a moot point.'
But there's a catch. Hurtig continues.
'But at the moment I'm bound by the rules of the Swedish legal system which say that the information can only be used as evidence in this country. For me to do otherwise would lead to me being disbarred.'
The Swedish authorities - their prosecutors and police both - have repeatedly and shamelessly leaked everything up to this point to the tabloids. So why can't they leak the Ardin/Wilén SMS transcripts to Cryptome or WikiLeaks?
