Wikileaks founder ‘abused cats and wanted women to know their place’

Melbourne, Feb 11 (ANI): Julian Assange, founder of whistle-blowing website Wikileaks, has been accused of abusing his cat in an explosive new book.

The book, by former WikiLeaks insider Daniel Domscheit-Berg, also claims Assange had a habit of chasing young women who would “know their role” and not question his actions.

Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange at the World’s Most Dangerous Websites is billed as a warts-and-all account of Domscheit-Berg’s time as chief programmer and media spokesman.

“Julian’s main criterion for a woman was simple. She had to be young. Preferably younger than 22,” the Courier Mail quoted Domscheit-Berg as saying in the book.

“And it went without saying that she couldn’t question him. ‘She has to be aware of her role as a woman,’ he used to say.”

Assange also used to “boast about how many children he had fathered in various parts of the world … Whether he took care of any of these alleged children, or whether they existed at all, was another question.”

Domscheit-Berg calls the 39-year-old Australian “brilliant” but “paranoid” and labeled him a “megalomaniac” whose personal hygiene and eating habits suggested he was “brought up by wolves.”

He even accuses Assange of abusing his cat. (ANI)
