London: The founder of the secret-spilling website WikiLeaks has complained that he is a victim of malicious leaks of prosecutors’ files in Sweden, where he is being sought to answer allegations of sexual offenses.
In an interview with The Times newspaper, Julian Assange was quoted Tuesday as complaining about reporting in The Guardian newspaper, which has an arrangement with WikiLeaks for an early look at the trove of US diplomatic files now being exposed on the Internet.
Assange said The Guardian was “selectively publishing” parts of the police report, and claimed that the material was given to the newspaper a day before his bail hearing last week.
Assange, who is contesting a Swedish extradition bid, was freed on bail last week. He faces his next court hearing on 11 January.
