Julian Assange And A Broken Condom ‘Rape’ In Sweden: A Timeline Of Events

by | 8th, December 2010

JULIAN Assange , founder of Wikileaks, is wanted on suspicion of rape. Is it a set up, a smear? The Swedish word for it is sexfalla , which sort of means honeytrap. Assange slept with two women in August 2010. And then they said he raped them because he failed to wear a condom.

The timeline of events:

August 11 : Assange is in Sweden. He is to speak at the behest of the Brotherhood Movement. His address will be on “war and the role of the media”.

He is met by a woman. At university she was the “campus sexual equality officer”. She is a feminist. She has a posting on her website called: 7 steps to legal reveng e.” It’s a guide to getting back at an ex-lover.

Assange and the woman agree that he can stay at her Stockholm apartment.

August 12 : Assange has drinks at the Beirut cafe in Stokholm.

August 13 : The pair have dinner. They go back to her place and have sex. He wears a condom. It breaks.

August 14 : The woman throws a party at her home for Assange.

Assange is at the headquarters of the Swedish trade union. In the front row is a woman. She is wearing a pink jumper. She stands out from the crowd. She is from Enkoping. She thinks Assange is “interesting, brave and admirable” . She has contacted the Brotherhood Movement and is keen to be involved. The Movement does not offer her a job. But she attends the seminar anyhow.

At the seminar, Woman B bought Assange a computer cable. In computing terms this is, possibly, akin to roses.

At the seminar, it is believed the two women meet each other.

The woman in the pink jumper joins Assange and his associates for lunch. At the eatery, Assange puts his arm around her. She says, I was flattered. It was obvious he was flirting .”

The lunch ends. The pair got to the cinema to watch Deep Sea . She says they were intimate ”. They go for a walk in a park. Assange calls her attractive ”.

You can read the courtship here. It’s one based on cheese .

They ended up at the city’s Natural History Museum, where Assange headed to a computer console and, to the woman’s clear annoyance, twittered about his day.

You can feel the romance. But he has to go. There is to be a crayfish party he has been invited to.

She heads back to Enkoping. He returns by taxi to the first woman’s flat.

The woman tweets:

“Sitting outside… nearly freezing, with the world’s coolest people. It’s pretty amazing!”

August 16 : The woman from Enkoping calls Assange. They arrange to meet in Stockholm. They agree to return to her place in Enkoping. But he has no cash to pay for tickets. He does not want to use a credit card because he says it could be “tracked”. She agrees to pay for both of them. At her place they have sex.

Assange wears a condom.

August 17 : They have sex again. He wears no condom. The pair have breakfast together. She buys him a return ticket to Stockholm.

Then the second woman calls the first women. She tells her of the unprotected sex.

August 20 : The two women go to a Stockholm police station. The first woman alleges that during sex Assange had deliberately broken the condom. The police consider the option that the women are victims. They think there has been possible rape and sexual molestation. Prosecuting attorney Maria Kjellstand agrees that Assange should be questioned on suspicion of rape.

August 21 : Police look for Assange. They do not find him.

August 22 : The news hits the press.
