Lawyer: Swedish “Rape” Charge Against Assange is for Having Sex Without Condom

December 2, 2010 by Brett Wilkins in Crime & Punishment, Europe, Sex with 0 Comments

This is NOT what Swedish law considers safe sex.

James D. Catlin, an Australian lawyer for Wikileaks founder and international fugitive Julian Assange says the rape charge being investigated by Swedish prosecutors stems from him having unprotected sex with two women.

In Sweden, having consensual sexual intercourse without a condom is considered rape and punishable by up to two years in prison under the Nordic country’s bizarre sex laws. That means that 44% of young Swedes are rapists.

The two women involved both boasted about their sexual “conquests” and did not accuse Assange of rape in their police statements. One of the women complained that the condom broke during sex while the second woman alleges Assange failed to use a condom the second time they had sex.

These revelations threaten to make a mockery of the Swedish legal process and will certainly provide ammunition to those who claim the charges are politically motivated. There is currently an international arrest warrant issued for Assange’s apprehension. It is believed that he is in the United Kingdom, where authorities are awaiting further instruction before making a move to arrest him.
