“The entire international community has witnessed the opportunistic manipulation of the accusations against Mr. Assange, in an attempt to destroy his reputation and to prevent his freedom and his ability to act politically,” reads the report submitted to the UNHRC. “It is obvious that this unprecedented situation has not come about as a result of the alleged acts committed in Sweden, but rather due to the clear political interference by powerful interests in response to Mr. Assange’s journalistic and political activities. This situation has turned Julian Assange into a political prisoner, who is effectively condemned to house arrest without any charges having been brought against him, without being able to exercise his right to due process.”
Assange sought refuge in Ecuador’s embassy in 2012 and was granted asylum status for “political persecution” over fears that if he followed court orders to return to Sweden he would then be extradicted to the United States under the power of a sealed US Federal Grand Jury indictment.
