Aussie lawyer speaks up for Assange - finally


The Swedish Prosecutor is still busy "looking under every stone" in the Assange case and there have been no updates since September 9, with a message stating that there were no updates, on aklagare.se, The Swedish Prosecutor's office official web site.
