Julian Assange complaint dismissedSeptember 11th, 2012 - 10:30 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
New York, Sept 11 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A case that had been filed by Julian Assange on Monday against a broadcasting watchdog in Britain that showed him dancing in a night club has been dismissed by the media house.
The Australian who is campaigning against secrecy and sensor ship said that that was a breach of his privacy. Julian who is being faced by rape and sexual assault accusations is at Ecuador’s embassy in London and is trying to evade being sent to Sweden too face the charges.
An independent regulator said that cases of unfair treatment and unguaranteed breach of privacy in the broadcast should be dropped. According to the 41 year old, who was a computer hacker, the watchdog company showed him dancing at a nightclub without his permission. He also added that the clip was taken provided that it was for own use and that his privacy was breached.
The interviews that were conducted of his colleagues by the program that had ones showed criticism of him and who were his supporters once was a show of unfair treatment. Ofcom gave a ruling saying that Assange gave permission for the watchdog company to feature him in that show and that the program treated him in a right manner by giving him a reply that as timed.
The Wikileaks spokes man had nothing to say since he had just seen the judgment. The previous month, Ecuador gave Assange political asylum but Britain could not offer him safe movement indicating that he will be imprisoned if he moves out of the embassy building. Assange is in fear because Sweden might give him over to the US where he could face punishment for treason for the secret embassy cables and war reports from Iraq and Afghanistan that were released by his website.
