No matter how you feel about Wikileaks, it’s hard not to find this a tiny bit humourous on some level.
Bjorn Hurtig, one of the lawyers representing Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, isquite upset that somebody leaked confidential police documents related to the rape Case Assange is fighting to the media.
According to The Australian, Assange’s Swedish lawyer, Bjorn Hurtig, said he would file a formal complaint with the Swedish authorities over the leaked police files and request an investigation into how the leak happened.
“It is with great concern that I hear about this because it puts Julian and his defence in a bad position,” Hurtig told a colleague, according to the paper.
“I do not like the idea that Julian may be forced into a trial in the media. And I feel especially concerned that he will be presented with the evidence in his own language for the first time when reading the newspaper. I do not know who has given these documents to the media, but the purpose can only be one thing – trying to make Julian look bad.”
This…this is precisely why the irony tag exists.
