First PayPal, Now Swiss Bank Dumps WikiLeaks’ Assange

December 6, 2010

(ChattahBox World News)—Notorious anarchist, egomaniac and WikiLeaks’ founder Julian Assange is getting more cold shoulders from the international community, after leaking thousands of stolen U.S. diplomatic cables. Today, his bank in Switzerland closed his account, because Assange supplied false address information when opening it. This action follows the freezing of his PayPal account for engaging in “illegal activities” and the ejection by from its servers. As the walls start to close in on Assange, he is threatening to release a cache of uncensored stolen files, he calls a “poison pill” or a “thermonuclear device,” he is using as an insurance policy against prosecution for his whistleblower activities.

The Guardian has the story on the account closing.

“PostFinance has ended its business relationship with … Julian Paul Assange,” the bank said in a statement.

“The Australian citizen provided false information regarding his place of residence during the account opening process.” [..]

“WikiLeaks had advertised the PostFinance account details online to “donate directly to the Julian Assange and other WikiLeaks Staff Defence Fund,” giving an account name of “Assange Julian Paul, Geneve”

Assange’s operations have also been subjected to repeated cyber attacks, leading the hosting company to give WikiLeaks the boot.

Swedish authorities have also issued an international arrest warrant for Assange, where he is wanted for questioning on rape charges.

    Основой юридической защиты г-на Джулиана Пола Ассанжа (Julian Paul Assange) из Wikileaks могло бы стать обоснование соответствия его действий международному праву и основным правам человека (в том числе это и право знать кто управляет людьми и какой их как интеллектуальный, нравственный, так и профессиональный уровень, в той части, что касается их способности регулировать публичные общественные процессы).

    Кроме того, есть юридические обоснования его права не раскрывать источники информации, если обнародованная информация соответствует действительности и затрагивает основные права большого количества людей.

    Невід’ємні права Людини.
    Неотъемлемые права Человека.
    Droits inalienables de l’homme.
    Rechte des Menschen.
    Inalienable human rights.

    Относительно выдвинутого формального обвинения Джулиану Полу Ассанжу (Julian Paul Assange) из Wikileaks: судя по тому, в чем его обвиняют (по опубликованной в интернете информации), он, скорее, не обвиняемым должен быть, он,скорее всего, потерпевший, так как из самой сути обвинений понятно, что идет фактическая его дискриминация и безосновательные придирки с противоположной стороны, мало имеющие общего с правами человека и простой логикой.

    The basis of legal protection, Mr. Julian Paul Assange of Wikileaks could be justification for its compliance with existing international law and fundamental human rights (including this and the right to know who controls the people and what they as an intellectual, moral or and professional level, in so far as regards their ability to regulate public social processes).

    In addition, there is legal justification of his right not to disclose sources of information, if released information corresponds to reality and affects the basic rights of many people.

    Regarding of formal charges, Julian Paul Assange (Julian Paul Assange) from Wikileaks: Judging by the charges against him (published in the online information), it probably is not the accused should be, it is likely the victim, because of the very essence of the charges it is clear that it is the actual discrimination and baseless carping from the opposite side, having little to do with human rights and simple logic.

    Невід’ємні права Людини.
    Неотъемлемые права Человека.
    Droits inaliénables de l’homme.
    Unveräußerlichen Rechte des Menschen.
    Inalienable human rights.
