CuteSteveJobs (1343851) writes "The founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, has been arrested by London police on behalf of Swedish authorities on allegation of rape. Assange has admitted that he exhausted by the ongoing battle against authorities. The Swiss Government has confiscated $37K in his Swiss Bank account. PayPal and Mastercard have frozen Wikileak's accounts, hampering Wikileaks from raising any more funds.
Meanwhile Australian PM Julia Gillard and Attorney General Robert McLelland who had publicly accused Assange of illegal acts were unable to say what laws he had broken. The Opposition legal affairs spokesman George Brandis said "As far as I can see he hasn't broken any Australian law, nor does it appear he has broken any American laws." US Attorney General, Eric Holder said he had authorised significant actions aimed at prosecuting WikiLeaks founder but refused to elaborate. Sarah Palin called Assange "an anti-American operative with blood on his hands" and Mike Huckabee said "anything less than execution is too kind a penalty". Assange will be represented in London by human rights lawyer, Geoffrey Robertson QC."
