Ekuador Habiskan Rp 917 Miliar untuk Assange

KONFRONTASI -  Penjemputan paksa pendiri Wikileaks Julian Assange dari Kedutaan Besar (Kedubes) Ekuador di London, Inggris, pekan lalu mengakhiri pelariannya selama tujuh tahun. Menurut New York Post, pemerintah Ekuador sudah mengeluarkan dana USD 6,5 juta (Rp 917 miliar) untuk keperluan Assange di gedung diplomatik mereka.

Sebagian besar dana tersebut dianggarkan untuk keperluan keamanan. Namun, kebutuhan sehari-hari seperti obat, makanan, dan ongkos mencuci juga masuk perhitungan.

Sweden court rejects Assange appeal against arrest warrant

KONFRONTASI - A Swedish court has rejected the appeal of the WikiLeaks founder against a previous arrest warrant on charges of sexual crimes.

"The Court of Appeal refuses Julian Assange's claim that the detention order of the city court be set aside," read the Svea Court of Appeals' ruling on Thursday.

The primary arrest warrant was issued in late 2010 for incidents of rape and sexual assaults that allegedly took place that year, allegations which Assange denies.
