UK concerned about human rights abroad….what about human rights at home. How can UK ignore and censor a man of value? …..How can UK strip #Assange of the right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” for 4 years without trial or charge? There is a presumption of innocence, so accusations are not sufficient to prove guilt. Accusations should be accompanied by reasonable evidence for there to be probable cause to make an arrest. In addition, a person is immune from incriminating him or herself.
Unreasonable delays in Justice, considered a human rights violation, as well as a form of censorship, are crimes against humanity. No excuse for Sweden not to interrogate #Assange. There are multiple formats available using technology….no reason for the incompetence of a Swedish biased prosecutor and judicial system on a witch hunt.
