Actually, we usually do have immunity from àllegations`. It`s called Libel. Not to mention the public perverting of potential jurors by ``media``.

Well, if it so clear that is rape why the case was dismissed for 2 years, why 2 more years later he has not been charged and why the Swedish justice want to have "an interview" with him in secret and in Sweden? and why they refused to have such in London?, there are allegation she took a picture of him naked in the bed and showed as a trophy too, not too much for a raped woman. Come on, nobody eats that, is would be rape they have had 4 years to charge him.
They don't want to do so because what they want is to have the interview, say alright, you are free of these case but we have to send you to the US. This is why there are no charges.
Paypal got 1 million GBP, and Visa another one allegedly for "illegal" activities, this money is not linked to "rape" either not he has been charge with anything in 4 years.
Paper Democracy, the same you have in Magistrates Court and everybody knows it.

Well said, Ms Reynolds. This is a 'witch hunt' reminiscent of the McCarthy era. Recall when George Galloway was framed by western intelligence services for his opposition to the war in Iraq? At a Congressional hearing, he so eloquently exposed their lies.

(  Anyone who followed the flight of blogger Riverbend of `Baghdad Burning` to a Syrian refugee camp for 2 years or more - I believe she was also in Cairo at the ousting of Mubarak in Egypt, not drawing a parallel with Saddam Hussein`s fate - might reflect on the ( 2 in exile and 4+ internally perhaps ) millions displaced from their homes just from and in Iraq. Her blog  brought forth the selective attacks on the poor...and unarmed.  )

If WikiLeaks is persecuted, journalists will become criminals...what are your thoughts?
