RT: US and Australia in cahoots for years over Assange intel





Posted on October 19, 2012

Australia has been handing key intelligence on Julian Assange to
Washington for over two years. Newly-released cables indicate the US
conducted an “active and vigorous enquiry” as early as 2010 to ascertain
if they could try Assange for espionage.

The Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT)
revealed it had been in cahoots with the US over the Assange case for
over two years, saying it had turned over documents as early as 2010
that pertained to the whistleblower’s activities.

One of the cables dated November 2011 includes a communiqué between
former Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd and former Attorney-General Robert
McClelland on the subject of how best to prosecute Assange.

The cable stipulates that the most successful route to prosecution
“would be to show that Mr. Assange had acted as a co-conspirator –
soliciting, encouraging or assisting [US Army private] Bradley Manning,
to obtain and provide the documents.”

US officials put pressure on Canberra following the release of thousands of cables, saying that “the WikiLeaks case was unprecedented both in its scale and nature.”

The government body also confirmed they had sent intelligence to the
US government on June 1 prior to Assange’s appeal of his extradition to
Sweden to be questioned over sexual assault charges.

The Australian government had previously refuted claims that they had
any knowledge of a conspiracy to put Assange to trial in the US.

“I’ve received no hint that they’ve got a plan to extradite him to the
US … I would expect that the US would not want to touch this,”
said Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr in June.

However, in August Australian officials confirmed that
the country’s diplomatic mission in Washington has been prepping for
Assange’s possible extradition to the US calling it “contingency
planning.”

Assange strikes back


Assange announced he would sue Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard over false claims that WikiLeaks acted illegally when they leaked 250,000 US diplomatic cables in 2010.

The whistleblower said that the PM’s claims prompted Mastercard Australia to join the financial blockade of WikiLeaks.

Assange told activist group Get Up! In an interview in the Ecuadorian
Embassy where he is currently held up evading arrest that Gillard
statements “directly affect the financial viability of WikiLeaks.”

”We are considering suing for defamation. So I have hired lawyers
in Sydney and they are investigating the different ways in which we can
sue Gillard over that statement,”
said Assange.

Assange has been holed up for four months in London’s the Ecuadorian
Embassy where he has been granted political asylum by the country’s
government. However, he has thus far been unable to leave as UK
authorities have threatened to arrest him and extradite him to Sweden
should he set foot outside the embassy.

Assange has repeatedly voiced fears that once in Sweden he would be handed over to US authorities to be put to trial.
