Chairman of Swedish Doctors for Human Rights responds to Amnesty Sweden
Amazingly, there has still been no official statement from Amnesty International following the UN panel's report back in February '16 as 500 prominent rights organisations and world intellectuals, including 60 professors and 4 Nobel-prize winners line up to protest the immutable situation of Julian Assange's arbitrary detention in the Ecuadorian embassy.
Since Assange claimed political asylum in the west London - in fear of being deported to the US by Sweden for his work in whistleblowing via the Wikileaks organisation - Swedish prosecutors have failed to bring any charges against the Australian despite Ecuador and Sweden signing up to a bi-lateral agreement allowing prosecutors access to the embassy where Assange now resides.
Last week on KILTR, I interviewed Professor Marcello Ferrada de Noli to chat with him about his articles in the Indicter, of which he is Editor-in-Chief, and he also posted a review of our conversation in which he augmented my argument that, indeed, Swedish prosecutors have failed the women in question.
"the Swedish prosecutors have failed to carry forward the investigation of this case; naturally they have failed the women too. But above all, they have failed Sweden and its international prestige as a decent country where the rule of law has been considered being paramount."

In the live KILTR interview, below, following an email on behalf Amnesty Sweden's legal advisor, Madelaine Seidlitz, De Noli issues a full rebuttal of Amnesty Sweden's claims that his article - claiming that a former Swedish secret agent dictated Amnesty Sweden's stance against Assange is - 'without foundation.'
