    • Surety of £240,000, according to BBC News
    • Curfew from 10am-2pm and 10pm-2am
    • Assange must report to the police station every day at 6pm
    - Can't apply for travel docs
    - Eletronic Tag
    ...- Must report to local police station every day at 6pm.
    - Prosecutor has 2hrs to appeal (Swedish prosecutors plan to launch an appeal against the decision to grant Assange bail. They have two hours to do lodge an appeal. Assange will not be freed until that process is over.)

    You'd think he's a serial killer or something like that :O

    Well, he is a suspected rapist. Police do tend to keep things secure with those crimes.

      He can't complain really, getting a free stay in a mansion for the next month. I think the judge suspects that Assange is very likely to run because of his contacts and because he thinks there is political involvement, hence why the bail conditions are so tight. He wants to prevent the guy slipping away as much as possible.

      I don't know if this is ultra unusual, I'll have to ask a lawyer.

        Sweden seems hellbent on turning Julian into a martyr. Bizzare strategy. If this is what they're doing to the public face of wikileaks in full view of the world; what the **** are they doing to his colleagues who nobody knows about?

        Wouldn't look so suspicous if they started getting charged with rape, with no public association with a group undergoing persecutation.

        Saw this quote from a manifesto by Julian; covered in the Guardian.

        "Every time we witness an act that we feel to be unjust and do not act we become a party to injustice

        Those who are repeatedly passive in the face of injustice soon find their character corroded into servility"

        Very perceptive.

        Saw in the Guardian livefeed a journalist promising a big story on Bradley Manning soon. That shoule be interesting as we haven't heard much about him lately.

          tbh, he's kind of brought it on himself, since he works so hard to keep his sources anonymous he could've been anonymous as well.

          Instead hes too busy self promoting himself as some kind of 'paragon of justice' he's going to get his just deserts for breaking the law.

            If he has indeed broken the law.

            I don't think anyone here would campaign for his freedom if he was fairly convicted of the sexual offences.

            I'd kick up a fuss if he gets extradited to the US though.
            well hes definitely broken US espionage laws (illegal to publish, collect classified information, also illegal not to hand back any classified documents if you find/are given them). So theres quite a justification for him to be tried in the US.

            As for the swedish laws who knows.

            It's illegal for men/women to mix together in public spaces without relatives present in Saudi Arabia.

            Does that mean you should be extradiated to Saudi Arabia for your facebook pictures?

            No? Well...:rolleyes:

            Even the US Supreme Court agrees that what is written in the Espionage Act 1917 is too broad a definition.
            Julian Assange and Wikileaks would argue they are protected under the First Amendment as they are a media organisation. Yes, a new type of media, but media nonetheless.
            Well unless the US pass a new law specifically for Assange and charge him under it, just like they done with one of Bin Laden's cook, I wasn't aware of this till I watched the documentary the other day on Channel 4.

            Erm...No. :K:
            Though, for whatever reason, notoriety is a known aphrodisiac. Even Ted Bundy had fan girls in the public gallery.
            Disclaimer: I am in no way implying Assange is like Bundy.:getmecoat:
            What's wrong with him?

            I think he oozes sexuality. Not as much as he did when he had the long, grey, swept-over hair, but still...

            I posted that right after Sweden said they wouldn't.

            They have subsequently revised this position.
