#PrataOmDet: The Smoking Gun
Anna Ardin & Co behind new hate campaign against Julian Assange. Seven steps indeed.
STOCKHOLM (Rixstep) — She was scared when Eva Finné dismissed the charges against Julian Assange and so contacted the notorious Claes Borgström. She and Borgström together with Sofia Wilén sat down together and mapped out a media smear programme against the WikiLeaks founder.
But things didn't go well and suddenly the case was in the British courts and being laughed at by the world at large. Time for Phase Two™ - a Twitter campaign that would reach the Swedish media.
The result was the Twitter topic '#PrataOmDet' ('talk about it') and was immediately seen to be an open attempt to whip up a frenzy and a show trial against Julian Assange. Connections to PR firms in Sweden that in turn had connections to Karl Rove were quickly uncovered.
Support for Julian Assange is almost universal outside Sweden; this was a new attempt to preempt legal proceedings and deliver a verdict before they began.
But what's been lacking up to now is a 'smoking gun' - proof the media blitz was organised specifically to hurt Julian Assange and pervert the course of justice. Thanks to Flashback, the smoking gun's been found.
- The tweet reads:
'Having said that, I think everyone writing on Monday should be explicit and keep it all to something close to the Assange situation.'
- @jocxy is Johanna Koljonen, a close friend of Anna Ardin who officially organised the '#PrataOmDet' campaign.
- Koljonen and others of Sweden's controversial 'cultural elite' exploited media contacts to effect a 'maximum impact' six days later when they officially launched.
- And it's all been done to maximise damage to someone not even charged with a crime. Seven steps indeed.
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.

I can tell you that the Swedish prosecution still hasn't provided copies of those SMS texts that have been referred to. Those texts are some of the most powerful exculpatory evidence. In Australia prosecutors have a very grave duty to disclose such evidence to courts when seeking the grave exercise of a court's power against an individual. Yet in Sweden in this case, in the first hearings to obtain an arrest warrant, those texts were not submitted to the Swedish court, which is highly improper.
