Documents in Julian Assange Rape Investigation Leak Onto Web By **** Saarinen @ Wired.com The ongoing rape-and-sexual-molestation investigation of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is taking another in a series of odd turns. A file containing 100 pages of interview transcripts, investigatory notes and other material in the case has appeared online, where its being eagerly dissected by Swedish WikiLeaks-watchers. The documents appear to consist of pretrial discovery material that prosecutors provided to Assanges Stockholm lawyer Björn Hurtig last year, which Hurtig subsequently faxed to the office of Assanges British attorney Mark Stephens. The documents begin with a Nov. 23 cover letter addressed to Stephens co-counsel, in which Hurtig advises: Please note that the documents are legally privileged information for Mr Julian Assange and nobody else. Somehow, though, after arriving in London, the documents got out. They were anonymously posted to the Adobe Acrobat file sharing and collaboration site in recent days, and the link is being circulated on Swedish message boards and blogs. Stephens did not immediately return a phone call from Wired.com on Wednesday. The file relates how Assanges separate sexual encounters with two women in Sweden last year led to the criminal investigation, telling the story through police interviews with the two alleged victims, and with friends to whom theyd confided.
