WikiLeaks founder Julian Assanges lawyer says he has seen secret police documents that prove the whistleblower is innocent of rape claims made against him by two women in Stockholm. Bjrn Hurtig, who is representing Mr Assange in Sweden, said the papers, which form part of the official Swedish investigation, reveal both women had 'hidden agendas and lied about being coerced into having sex with Mr Assange, 39. The freedom of information crusader is being held in Wandsworth jail in London while fighting extradition to face the accusations, which his defenders say are part of a plot to stop him releasing more embarrassing information on his website about governments worldwide. Australian Mr Assange met both women at a seminar in Stockholm last August. After having intercourse with each, at different times, he faced sex charges which he strenuously denies that were withdrawn and then reinstated. Mr Hurtig said in an exclusive interview from his Stockholm office: 'From what I have read, it is clear that the women are lying and that they had an agenda when they went to the police, which had nothing to do with a crime having taken place. 'It was, I believe, more about jealousy and disappointment on their part. I can prove that at least one of them had very big expectations for something to happen with Julian. He has asked for Swedish prosecutors permission to disclose more 'sensational information. 'If I am able to reveal what I know, everyone will realise this is all a charade, he said. 'If I could tell the British courts, I suspect it would make extradition a moot point. 'But at the moment Im bound by the rules of the Swedish legal system, which say that the information can only be used as evidence in this country. For me to do otherwise would lead to me being disbarred. Mr Hurtig, a top sex-crime defence lawyer, is ready to fly to London and present the evidence when Mr. Assange appears in court this week if he is given the all-clear. Mr Assange has not been charged yet. Mr Hurtig said that when they met, 'I was struck by how good-looking he was. He gave off an aura of someone who was very self-assured and comfortable with himself the way famous people do. 'He denied vehemently that he had raped or in any way indulged in non-consensual sex. He was very upset. He kept saying, How can they do this to me? Ive done nothing wrong. They are trying to destroy my credibility. He kept saying it was a witch-hunt and we must fight it. One of the women, a political activist in her 30s described as Miss A, claims she was unlawfully coerced and subjected to sexual molestation and deliberate molestation. The other woman, Miss B, who is in her 20s, has alleged he had sex with her without a condom while she was sleeping. Mr Assange told Mr Hurtig he had a brief affair with Miss A who had organised a seminar for the Centre-Left group Brotherhood Movement while staying in her flat. Miss B admitted in her police statement that she sought out Mr Assange after seeing him on TV and, clearly infatuated, attended the seminar he was giving. They had a 'sexual encounter in a cinema on their first meeting and two days later had protected sex at her flat, 40 miles from Stockholm. But the woman told police that she woke up next morning to find him having sex with her without a condom. 'This is what they are saying is rape, said Mr Hurtig. He said Mr Assange and Miss B parted on good terms, with Miss B buying his train ticket back to Stockholm. But Mr Hurtig said that after Mr Assange reneged on his promise to call her and failed to return her phone calls over the next few days, the drama took a 'bizarre turn. Miss B called the office of Miss A, whom she had briefly met at the seminar, asking the whereabouts of Mr Assange. During the conversation they realised that they had both been 'victims of his charms. Mr Assange told Mr Hurtig he refused their request to take a test for sexually-transmitted diseases. He said Miss B was especially anxious about the possibility of HIV and pregnancy. It was then that she and Miss A walked into a police station and told their stories. Mr Hurtig said: 'I dont believe Miss B felt she had been raped until she went to the police station. She was encouraged by a policewoman and a junior female prosecutor to think that way. While I dont think there was any conspiracy, Julian says he is being victimised because of his role with WikiLeaks. The fact that he has a high profile has made him a target for opponents. Mr Hurtig said that before leaving Sweden to lecture in Britain at the end of September, Mr Assange tried in vain several times to arrange an interview with Stockholm police. The strong sense of womens rights in Sweden means 53 rape allegations are reported per 100,000 people, the highest rate in Europe. Also, under Swedish law there are gradations of rape. There is the most serious kind, involving major violence, 'regular rape, which could include a degree of violence, and 'unlawful coercion, which might involve putting emotional pressure on someone. The case may turn on whether consensual sex turned into non-consensual sex and whether a mans decision not to use a condom can amount to a crime. But Mr Hurtig remains confident that Mr Assange will get a fair hearing in Sweden. 'This is not a banana republic, he said. 'Its just that when it comes to sex crimes, the police and prosecutors and members of the court seem to lose their ability to think logically. That said, Im convinced that as soon as the case is heard in Sweden it will be thrown out. (The Mail)
