crimeandpunishment writes “Mistake? We didn’t make a mistake. That’s what Swedish prosecutors said Sunday as they defended their handling of a rape allegation against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. The Swedish Prosecution Authority said the prosecutor who issued the arrest warrant Friday did not make a mistake, even though a higher-ranked prosecutor withdrew the warrant the next day. A spokesperson for the Authority said: ‘The prosecutor who took over the case yesterday had more information, and that is why she made a different assessment than the on-call prosecutor.’ Assange, who was in Sweden seeking legal protection for the site as it prepares to leak more Afghan war documents, told a Swedish tabloid newspaper, ‘I don’t know who’s behind this but we have been warned that for example the Pentagon plans to use dirty tricks to spoil things for us.’” We covered the warrant being issued and withdrawn yesterday.
