Assanges advokater övervakas – ber om hjälp

Enligt Guardian hävdar Assanges advokater Jennifer Robinson and Mark Stephens på advokatfirman Finers Stephens att de är övervakade av ”säkerhetstjänsten”. Tydligen ska även advokatfirman ha blivit pressade av Washington i ett brev.

Jennifer Robinson säger själv i en kommentar:

It’s quite a serious situation, adding that, according to the UN’s Basic Principles on the Role of Lawyers, governments should ensure that lawyers ”are able to perform all of their professional functions without intimidation, hindrance, harassment or improper interference” and that ”lawyers shall not be identified with their clients or their clients’ causes as a result of discharging their functions.

Här finns även vad som ska vara en personlig vädjan ifrån Assange:

From: Julian Assange – WikiLeaks
Subject: WikiLeaks – hope you can help

Dear ***,

As you may have heard I am facing arrest in the United Kingdom in relation to extradition attempts by Sweden and probably the US.

If this happens I will be stuck in solitary confinement during my defence unless I can raise the necessary funds for bail and representation.

I am reaching out to you in regard to this matter and I am also looking at support to defend our other WikiLeak people.

If you can assist or you know someone who could please contact me here or my solicitor Jennifer Robinson ( +44(0)75 8452 9148 or +44(0)78 3111 5000) of Finers Stephens Innocent LLP.

Hope you can help,


Julian Assange – WikiLeaks
