Why did Marianne Ny not question Assange when he was in Sweden?

Accoding to Marianne Ny her warrant for Assanges' arrest was issued becuase she has not been able to talk to him about the rape allegations. However, Assanges' defense lawyer claims that he has never been contacted by Marianne Ny about questioning him, Bjorn Hurtig however, has asked Marianne Ny several time to hear his clients' version of the alleged incidents. In an email to Assanges' English co-counsel Bjorn Hurtig explains the following to her:

From: Björn Hurtig

Subject: SV: Our client

Dear Jennifer,

Enclosed You will find a copy of the documents that I have would like to send to the prosecutor. I have not been able to have the document translated in detail, but I will now tell You the most important things in it.

First of all I comment the ongoing investigation and tell the prosecutor that I have asked her several times that they should hear my client so that we can be aware of the accusations. They have said no to this initially (and by this I mean for several weeks). Furthermore I remind her that I several times have asked her to give me the evidence in the case. She has said no to this also. I then tell her that I have asked my questions informally and in writing and tell her about a formal request that I made 14 of September 2010. This formal request has not yet been formally answered, which I find to be a breach of Swedish law (23:18 Rättegångsbalken). I also tell her that Sweden has not followed art 6:3 of The European Convention of the 4 november 1950, because Julian has not been informed of the accusation in detail and in his own language. Neither has he been informed of the documents in the case in his own language. This is an incorrect behavior.

I then tell her that Julian is indeed willing to participate in a hearing. But I remind her that I asked her in writing (14 of September) if he was free to leave Sweden for doing buissines in other countries and that she called me and said that he was free to leave. This is important because it means that Julian has not left Sweden in trying to escape the Swedish justice. Then I reminds her that Julian and I several times have tried to give them dates when he could come to Sweden and participate in a hearing, for example I spoke to the second prosecutor Erika Leijnefors during week nr 40 and told her that Julian could participate in a hearing the 10 of October (a Sunday) or some day the following week. The prosecutor in charge (Marianne Ny) said no to this. Other times Marianne Ny has said no to our proposals due to that one of her policeofficers were sick or because the time did not suit her. This is also important because it shows that Julian has tried but Marianne Ny has said no. I go on remembering her that Julian has suggested that he could participate over a phone line and from an Australian Embassy. She has said not to this also. Then I tell her that Julian is willing to participate through a videoconference or to make a written statement over the accusation and the questions they may have. This is of utmost importance, since it shows his willingness to participate. I remind her of a ruling from our Highest Court; NJA 2007 s.337, in which the court did not put a man in custody although he was abroad and did not come to Sweden to participate in a hearing. It was not proportional to do such a thing, since he left Sweden rightfully (just like Julian) and thus did not try to escape the Swedish justice, he was willing to participate via phone or in writing and so forth.

In the second last section of the letter I tell the prosecutor that she should think of the damage that Sweden already has done to Julian by letting his name in public. I tell her that I have heard that there is a policeinvestigation going on about the first prosecutor who let Julians name out In public, which shows that it is a serious matter. If the prosecutor now goes forward with a request of Julian being put in custody it is my opinion that the damage could be enormous; whatever the outcome of the trial may be. Therefore I urge her to come back to me with a proposal of when and where we could have this hearing instead of her dragging Julian in to court.

In the last section I tell her that if she proceeds with her plans of a custodytrial, I want all documents. This I say because I don not trust them to give me everything.

So Jennifer, this is the main things in my letter. I hope You understand what I am writing. If not, please call me. I will not be able to take Your calls today though, since I will be busy the rest of the day. If You do not call med, please let me know a s a p if I can send the letter to the prosecutor. I would like to send it first thing tomorrow morning. You may tell med by mail.

Best regards

Björn Hurtig

1 - @Anonymous. I know that I and many Swedes feel exactly like you do. The way this matter has been handled by the four female prosecutors is horrible. The fact is that now six women, the four prosecutors, Anna Ardin and Sofia Wilen together are using the Swedish State, the good name of our country, that has been built by so many hard working, honest Swedes to get back at a man out of pure jealousy. Not in my wildest dreams did I think this could happen in our country. A nightmare for Assange and a wake up call for many Swedes. And yes, do go ahead and boycott Swedish companies, money talks....

2 - It would appear that CIA spying in Sweden included the procurement of many accommodating women, not all of whom were given the opportunity to raise up a heir on behalf of the Wikileaks 'whistle blower' dynasty. Looks like Ny got the short straw.

3 - There must be an insistence that any trial or interrogation will be open and completely transparent and accessible to the public, because the smear-team cannot be trusted to not get up to their well tested tricks! Even then we cannot be certain that they won't pull a sleight of hand or dupe us.

This insistence must come way before any trial or interrogation has even begun.

4 - Under Swedish law can the prosecutor be charged or is she protected by the state.
Can you bring civil criminal charges against Ms Ny in Sweden.
It seems that Ms Ny is guilty of trying to pervert the course of justice and would be jailed in many countries and sacked in most.

5 - Marianne Ny is nothng more than a brown nosing piece of trash that obviously wants to big note herself, be internationally 'renowned' for helping obama and his crew in nailing the wikileaks hero, but in reality is a pathetic little pawn who can't tell right from wrong, and responds with 'how high' when the yanks say 'jump!'. The aussie dude is a hero, the yank politicians and war machine, and their international puppets, are the trash of this earth. For some reason those brain dead people, who incidently are PUBLIC SERVANTS, seem to think they are some form of untouchable power who think they have a mandate to do ever they please. No truth in them, no desire to ensure this amazing place called home (earth) is good for all generations. The yanks are perputrators of wars, subversively, and now it's coming out.

6 - I was under the (apparently false) impression that Sweden is an independent and sovereign state. Your ridiculous attempts at prosecuting Julian Assange on some petty, bullshit accusation proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are simply acting as subservient lackeys for American war criminals and fraudsters. Therefore, I have decided to liquidate all my portfolio holdings of Swedish-based companies and I am advising all my clients to do the same. You people are despicable and I shall do everything in my power to boycott your country and anything it produces.

As for Marianne Ny, my message to her is as follows; you have chosen to further the interests of Human Rights violators, subsequently you yourself have become complicit in aiding & abetting crimes against humanity. Expect to receive news of an international arrest warrant being issued AGAINST YOU one day, you corrupt piece of Swedish shit.

7 - I have seen a reference to an article that the USA has threatenened to end intelligence sharing with Sweden to pressure the Swedish government. Is there a source for this or even a denial?

UK and Swedish unions should immediately ban any aircraft attempting to extradite Assange to anywhere! Don't let it re-fuel; don't let it take off!

Swedish unions should black ban the provision of all services to Ny's office - including electricity, garbage collection and sewerage services - let her drown in her own filth.

There are no doubt hit squads from several of the world's more deadly spook agencies gunning for this man who, along with other Wikileakers, has done humanity an enormous service.

We must protect him.

8 - @Calm Meadows At some point the investigation led by Marianne Ny will become public and I am sure it will be scrutinized by legal experts and heads will roll.

9 - @Sinbad Marianne Ny as a Swedish official can be investigated and prosecuted by Justitieombudsmannen, JO in Sweden. Her actions if against the law or constitutions are not protected by the state.

10 - Typical tramps humped and dumped

11 - Hi guys, it's a shame and an attack to the Democracy. Although they can arrest a men, they can't kill an idea, the seed was spread. Good luck.

12 - Emoticon

13 - Marianne Ny is a stupid cow who shoudl be spit at Emoticon

14 - Hi guys, sorry but yes they can kill an idea, they can change an idea, they can implement an idea.

15 - As an Englishman living in Sweden for 23 years. I have come to realize that the Swedish public at large are not very bright. The women seem to be more manly(spiked heeled, corset snapping Fermi witches, hellbent on castrating all males) and, the men here seeming to like it to the point of begging for it.

Worse of all, is the continues contempt that the Swedish politicians have for their own race, and of other countries as well, by even allowing it to get this far. That once again proves beyond a doubt, that when Sweden gets involved in something Internationally, it is like "picking worms out of bullshit" As for Ny, her looks tell all there is to know about the woman.
