One Assange Accuser May Have Stopped Co-Operating

Anna Ardin, one of the two complainants in the rape and sexual assault case against WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange, has left Sweden, and may have ceased actively co-operating with the Swedish prosecution service and her own lawyer, sources in Sweden told Austrilia's Crikey.

Crikey continues:

The move comes amid a growing campaign by leading Western feminists to question the investigation, and renewed confusion as to whether Sweden has actually issued charges against Assange. Naomi Klein, Naomi Wolf, and the European group Women Against Rape, have all made statements questioning the nature and purpose of the prosecution.

Ardin has apparently high-tailed it to Palestine:
Ardin, who also goes by the name Bernardin, has moved to the West Bank in the Palestinian Territories, as part of a Christian outreach group, aimed at bringing reconciliation between Palestinians and Israelis. She has moved to the small town of Yanoun, which sits close to Israel’s security/sequestration wall. Yanoun is constantly besieged by fundamentalist Jewish settlers, and international groups have frequently stationed themselves there.

Most curious, she appears to now be encouraging hackers who are attacking financial web sites of firms that have stopped acting is donation transfer sources for WikiLeaks. She tweeted yesterday:

Mastercard, Visa and Paypal — hit it, now!


  1. He might be released on Tuesday then. We can only hope.

  2. Someone is getting cold feet. It seems this crazy-christian-social democrat-avenge-feminist just realized that she has been a tool of the Assange setup. I suspect that she might not want to return to Sweden if Assange is released to the US. The Pirate Party will make sure that any computer she touches for the coming decade explodes in her face :D
