UN Rules Julian Assange is "Arbitrarily Detained"

• paulcraigroberts.org

At the beginning of Assange's arbitrary detention, I said that the detention was in violation of the rights of asylum and is akin to the Soviet Government's refusal to allow Cardinal Mindszenty free passage from the US Embassy in Hungary when he was granted political asylum by the US government. I pointed out that in our time Washington now behaves like the Soviet dictatorship half a century ago.

The illegal actions of the Swedish and UK governments were on the orders of Washington, the corrupt government of which is determined to get Assange for publishing leaked documents revealing the criminality and mendacity of the US government.

Washington and its UK vassal claim to be defenders of the rule of law, but, of course, both governments are lawless.
