26 the wiki leaks founder was soon involved in an intimate relationship with both of them. had the woman who had invited him to speak also offered her. to which is studio so there's only one there's only one bed in attentions and i'm going to be away you can stay so. however things chang and the woman came back. and. wanted julian to stay there anyway. those women they really approached him it seems like especially the younger ones saw him on t.v. fell into law whatever that means to be the person then it looks like someone who wants to be a rock n roll group feels nothing approaching him and really chasing him down and finally she also succeeds in it and they share a one night stand which at some point becomes
9:31 am
a balticon don't you know. it was only after learning that a song should slept with both of them at the women decided to go to the police that proved a turning point both for wiki leaks founder julian assange it was when this story took a very different. women went to the police. one's there to report her rape their report they wanted to encourage him to have a veto's because they've had sex with him unprotected and. so there was no like actual rape right there was no violence there although all the newspapers afterwards they were saying rape allegations rape allegations there was no actual rape that this is serious business is that this is exactly this is that was the aim. the whole exercise to stop hearing the would rape in connection with.
9:32 am
the best occasion in which it exonerate onto good feelings and the sound of. my snow in the rain mouthing a string gazing is another story and even more news in the renomination. in many people's minds there's something suspicious about him and because he hasn't and he's run away from the war i think it would have been better had he gone to sweden because i think he needed a change he's clear his name but. at the same time i completely understand why he didn't see the world in sweden it's not a country where i understand the language of addition the media climate has been set open in sweden. i think that if. julian went to sweden at that point he would have been extradited he was often like mocked in the prez and people will say ah he just wants to know as he doesn't
9:33 am
want to face the music in sweden and so on and then said he's paranoid but i think from today's perspective and we really know now what the that the us make us is really after him i think he was. the big thing that i think truly undermined the public support for julian was a swedish case obviously you would find the newspapers of high repute. television stations to doing julian in and became gratuitous. i think would be fair to say the mainstream media never really liked elayne. they didn't really like to him because. his model publishing was
9:34 am
a threat to their systems. and there was a great deal of jealousy in the mainstream towards wiki leaks and torch and particularly why i wanted to be more like all. 31 of ops. when they wanted access to commence they were then that. now they can't even do you know great this little note with respect. in the moment they collided with him they took the information he had but then immediately let's say the next day you had a hit piece in the new york times from bill keller he was the editor in chief at that time who described him as a bag. he came immediately as something about his
9:35 am
character. though i think that is a betrayal it's a betrayal of principles. what do you think of the allegations that julia sanji is the direct quote from the new york times is that he's a narcissist with an outsized view of his own of origins and that he has no interest in monday matters like personal hygiene. really. i can't think of another journalist or publisher who has won a major international journalism awards. and for whom media organizations have complained about whether his socks were dirty or had been washed here i mean really. i
9:36 am
wonder whether any single human being has been subjected to the never most news. in the pots it was exported. into india live in a british court released to soldiers on bail on condition that he didn't leave the country. he was also required to remain at the country house owned by a close friend the british journalist volm smith. well i'm now sitting in a chair. and ingham home is a sort of house that is the products of wealth that my family has generated for hundreds of years my family moved terence 75. fortunate. to have that responsibility to go after. me it is an investing at the journalists
9:37 am
and that's why our journalist and kindly offered these may be a secure place to be the place from where the publications will be made. she'll say captain. phillips safe as one country. and it's always a bit safer to be blunt you're much safer i was here and though i knew i was here but as far as if you will be around his concert is about as good as. we hear leaks are basically turn this into the office for quite a lot so you would have come in here and you'd have found people working on computers and bits of paper printouts everywhere running around with these little disks and things like this so that involved having julian it had involved having. the people work for him and involved having everybody who wanted to interview him but this was the main office this was my. keepings course this.
9:38 am
is a place where. a lot of work here later down the road also came to happen but i would say that the big here. the big publications for. cable gate they were conducted. wireless jordan was in house arrest in having a mall. because it was so secret you'd be herons you see people working on computers and you know i wouldn't like office because it would you know you you know you'd be looked at and then one don't you think oh gosh what a silly question washed off will bury them tell me if they want to tell me. i sold them release the afghan war logs i sold them working on the diplomatic. and i saw them working on some stuff that came off the woods when they were here it's interesting. very hard to stop organizations like we. and the whitney's isn't going
9:39 am
to be the end of it even if we disappear as which is no sign that it will. become a sort of guerrilla organization for freedom of speech. on the 1st the judean was in the extra one and the see. the morning off to he went to that and the sikhs i read in the news and realized that i just lost my bail money. is something that is a good and. selflessness gravity was making me more sad listening seemingly and it was. a. right. this is a good the embassy when. she leaves. maybe 7 gifts.
9:40 am
the embassy's only the one of the 2. so what you're looking at. which in fact was. julian simoom the. 5 you see out. today i saw as they found wiki leaks he's refusing to leave the ecuadorian embassy in london the expected to make his last comment the softening. we knew each other before he came to me. basically the possibility of an acquittal protecting him arrives from that friendship i once he's lost with so most. people.
9:41 am
lead 3 percent of people said yes. this is in 30. percent sophie during the embassy itself a small piece of flight. 300. 81st when they were scum turning to one. of the room. buildings surrounded by high buildings which is just not allowed for this song. to come into them but julian compared he's stay at the embassy. to be leaving. basically because he was subjected only to feed.
9:42 am
and he never saw sunlight he didn't have. medical care there were huge challenges the. first years he was constantly under surveillance there. and when you were in the embassy you could cost countries here and the people outside with the speaking on walkie talkie nearly no corner in the embassy where you watched. buildings. all. this was the last place. this. continued to run we stayed at the ecuadorian embassy while within its walls many new publications and revelations
9:43 am
came to light the highest profile exposing is probably a period in $26.00 team the year in which a new president was to be elected in the us. well the pandemic no certainly no border is just blind to nationalities. has emerged we don't have a territory we don't have a back seat the whole world needs to be. people. judge you. come in every crisis a little distance and. we can do better we should be. everyone is contributing to each of our own way but we also know that this crisis
9:44 am
will not go on forever the challenge is creating the response has been massive so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we are in it together. you can't be both with the yeah you know what. i want to do i want to make america great.
9:45 am
the same people i meet. believe the journey and the songs to live thus trump. that came from the 5 that he put into the body to maine some what want to call the deep d.n.c. leaks basically they were the e-mails from democrats to. please i doubt the law and how the democratic national council had come from banished. removed from hope you don't know. anything true place hillary clinton has been contained in the presidential election. that was something that i think the american public is really important about wiki leaks is that the russian government has engaged in espionage against
9:46 am
america and then they have given that information to wiki leaks for the purpose of putting it on the internet. without subtitles on the phone coos of a 2.0 and various other d.c. leaks and various other you know maims which. supposed to convince us that this information was from russia well you know. i don't know whether it was from russia . leaks julian hasn't told me curious as it wasn't. required for. all of the fault. when they revealed those dirty is. the rule here chrissy behind it and so want everyone but it's not so bad but when
9:47 am
she lost the election everybody said like oh my god this was the reason why it happened because they needed some explanation. the reception of those cables was pretty nasty. there was even this outrage. and this he may keep stop making stop make such stop he came out of the embassy silence he got to keep. when the years went by his situation became more difficult and difficult the pressure because bigger and bigger and then the government changed in ecuador i think the situation became really great. there was an election in ecuador. became president. he was a great supporter of america still the. government
9:48 am
decided to shift. going on foreign policy. decided to. defer relations united states. to call for dot. i'm not going to get really sexy out of sites ok so it will cost us in this. 3 battle stress but a politically for muscle must be. seized so she receptionist will be able to persuade us is a similar and our government was determined that they had to get rid of him and turned his life into hell. reading a wire lawyer is the searching businesses. installing cameras in every room
9:49 am
and private meetings had to be holding the door not supplying toilet paper. and cross supplying toilet paper just. for getting some of this paper. for getting to bring food for getting to bring if they forgot to bring food for julian but. it doesn't relate. to the is. because it really made it. go i have to ask this because according to the security firm employees who are hired by the ecuadorian government julian was an extremely difficult guest himself but he could be argued with the embassy staff a lot he neglected personal hygiene often left his bathroom and small kitchen in the mass. this is in the 18 months of the miranda government you're talking about that's right. now why is it that none of that is
9:50 am
just for the preceeding 60 years. did he change personalities all of a sudden they have to use heem. feces on the walls. they wanted to have proof and reason. to take away from asylum which is really an international humanitarian scandal. you're going to see this. is.
9:51 am
the 1st time. i could really see the toll it took. like i was shocked. back to. where they have been waiting. for. sweet right. into 3. months of torture absurdities are. trying. to serve i'm. not going to.
9:52 am
the united states immediately filed an extradition request with. served in the months in prison for breaching the terms of his home detention and 2012. just keeping to the dorrian embassy the wiki leaks founder was sent to belmarsh prison just outside london. high security maximum security prison where your murderers and terrorists are bone bruise brutal. belmarsh prison is said to be a worse place even than guantanamo. he is.
9:53 am
there nodded the right fraternizing with all the person knows. he told me that when he sees people go past his cell he wishes he wished he could speak for them. i saw in those leaked media also where he appears to have a lot lost a lot of weight. when i saw that i really started crying because when you know someone very well and see him in this position. i'm not allowed to hand him anything the only way of communicating with the outside world is to him to receive . we we're not sure if he wanted to communicate with journalists but here's
9:54 am
a letter we have just received from belmarsh prison and it's from jill and i songes it says here on the back of. that letter reveals despair and frustration as the trial draws closer the wiki leaks founder says he has no internet or telephone nexus which. seriously hinders his ability to prepare his own defense and that he has nothing much to do except walk thousands of laps per day around the cell. it's very distressing to. see someone you have worked with and who is an old friend. in such peril. and. to. think that they may not come out of it is very upsetting.
9:55 am
the charges that the u.s. government have raised against julian to extradite him have shifted. first they called him a hacker and said that he had assisted manning in securing the information that manning wanted. bradley manning was a hand man who was in the armed forces and clearly was shocked by what was going on around him. bradley manning now chelsea manning. was the original whistleblower who gave wiki leaks them most important information on the afghan war logs the film from the helicopter voices journalist going to. the diplomatic papers all came from bradley manning. the way the u.s. ministry of justice sees it julian assange has didn't just receive information from
9:56 am
an informant which would not constitute a crime journalist do have the right to acquire information from sources even if it is classified the american government claims that doesn't conspire with private manning who help to access classified information intending to harm the united states. the u.s. hopes to. proof that the sound is a spy not just. look at the charges they are absolutely applicable. to potentially other journalism or media publications. during astonish being a publisher is put in prison for being a publisher for no other reason than being a publisher for. the revenue. there are no rules to the game. if for each turn a list in the united states should feel a cold i seen him running down their spine. at the charges that have been
9:57 am
leveled against this publisher. because they could be next. they're julian. you are one of the most bravest person i know and this sentence that you'll get repeated often the courage is contagious it was really true. that's the reason for great movements of draws you'll have slobbered think of people. support and understand but there is. a wider issue at stake and he's not alone he is not alone. there are a large number of people who value the contribution that's made. public
9:58 am
interest. i remember judy i went into another's famous when you were relatively free and i remember that you were just you know carrying his legal back. and having him very humble life. would look forward to a day well he's free and not being honest or. not being chased around the world by the americans. i hope that we can get you out of there. if you will be sitting next to us somewhere nice something water by deceit these would be like just just a bad memory. her .
