G said he's the younger brother of Sofia. He said he knew of Sofia's interest in Wikileak [sic] and she thought they did a good job. She also thought Julian Assange was interesting because he represented Wikileak [sic]. Sofia told him that by pure coincidence she'd found Julian Assange was going to speak in Stockholm and that she had been given a seat for the lecture. G said she thought it would be cool to hear what he had to say.
G said the next time she met Sofia was a morning outside the ICA food store. It was approximately 08:00. Sofia was agitated and told him that there had been a problem with a cable and that she'd been to a party afterwards and that Julian Assange had followed her home. Sofia told him that Julian Assange was in her flat and that it felt strange. G thought Sofia was a bit shook up by the situation. She asked G if he wanted to meet Julian Assange but he didn't want to. He drove Sofia home and then went home to his own place.
The next time G heard anything from Sofia was through an SMS message she sent him where it said Julian wasn't so nice. G didn't learn what had happened until Sofia went to the police and one could read about it in the newspapers. He learned what had happened through Sofia and his mother. The latter said that Julian had had Sex with Sofia without a condom and against her will whilst she was asleep.
Sofia has later said that she didn't want to file a complaint against Julian but only wanted him to test himself. She went sought the police for advice and the police filed a complaint. Sofia also said she'd spoken with Julian about testing himself and Julian told her he didn't have time to test himself and she should take him at his word that he wasn't infected.
G replied to a question from the chief interrogator that he and Sofia don't talk about sexual matters with each other.
G said Sofia was mostly angry about what had happened and was sick from the modifying drugs she'd been given. She was also upset that the incident had made it to the media and created such a stir.
Read back and approved.
I'm so sick of it all. Will it never end? At any rate I want to say the other girl's just as much to blame.

Apparently Swedish laws are unique. If you have a penis you're half a rapist before you even get through customs.

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.

The prosecutor could achieve this broadening of the law during Assange's trial so he can be convicted of a crime that didn't exist at the time he allegedly committed it. She would need to. There is no precedent for this. The Swedes are making it up as they go along.

Julian Assange will surely learn that considering what WikiLeaks has published, he's got a few enemies in the Pentagon, the CIA, and the White House. Sweden began an investigation into rape which was later dismissed. Assange was even denied residence in Sweden. One can only speculate to what extent the security agencies of the US were involved. And considering the obvious interest of the US to silence WikiLeaks, is it likely Assange will have an accident of the 'Boston brakes' kind in the coming years? Or will he be snared with compromising information of the 'honey trap' kind?
- 'Drozd' at Flashback 23 October 2010
The truth will out, the truth wins out. Let no journalist ever again speculate into what the protocols say. Six months of digging and the people at Flashback have the actual documents. The sleaze printed by rags such as the Daily Mail, Sweden's Aftonbladet and Expressen, and perhaps above all the toxic Nick Davies of the Guardian, can stand no more. Yet more: these documents are an indictment of the 'news organisations' who've printed deliberate inaccuracies all along or even worse: refused to print anything at all. Nick Davies' account of the protocols was maliciously skewed; both Aftonbladet and Expressen had copies early on and printed nothing. Bloggers had copies but arrogantly kept the information to their Smeagol selves.
