I – Cases we update:

U.S. indictment against Wikileaks and HR breaches in the case  Assange

With regard to the ‘Assange case’ in Sweden, SWEDHR wishes to clarify that our advocacy for the protection of the human rights of the Wikileaks founder, whose organization exposed war crimes in Iraq, in Afghanistan, and elsewhere, does not take a stance on the disputed “culpability issue” as put forward by two Swedish citizens. Mr Assange’s human rights – like the human rights of any person involved in this ‘case’ – entitles him a due process, instead five years of detention without charge. So far, the only trial of Mr Assange in Sweden is the one conducted by the Swedish media. We demand that the legal process be completed and that the prosecuting authority respect the recommendations of Sweden’s higher courts by interrogating Mr Assange in London. In this way, the legal due process to which he and all others have a right, will be properly advanced in a timely manner.

Update 18 July 2015:

victoria shilova

“Victoria, what are the objectives of your ANTIWAR movement? Why did you create it?”

– “Very simple. This is a peoples’ movement, and it is aimed at ending the war in the Donbas. This is due to the fact that the troops of the Ukrainian army and so-called battalions are being used against the civilian population. I can understand when a man with a gun fights against the man with the rifle, but I can’t understand when they mutilate corpses of women and children, including pregnant women – spreading in Lugansk and Donetsk. And when I saw the first pictures of the first bombing, I thus decided to organize the people. And it is precisely why such a movement was organised in Kiev. Now we have build it up in other 25 cities.”

(From an interview with Victoria Shilova. Original in Russian at Виктория Шилова: “Богдан Хмельницкий уже родился”).
