What Really Happened When Julian Assange Was Spied On By The British Government

by | 20th, June 2011

HAS the British Government watching Wikileaks founder Julian Assange during his arrest at Ellingham Hall, Norfolk?

Vaughan Smith, who owns Ellingham Hall, adds: “I am not an expert on cameras but I believe that these take number plates and report number plates. I think the country is full of them but I don’t know why I need quite so many of them around my house.”

Roy Greenslade asked his readers:

“Is it really necessary to spy on Julian Assange every minute of the day?’ he demanded.

Norfolk County Council answers:

“Two speed-reactive signs were installed on Yarmouth Road in Ellingham in June 2002, of which one appears to be the sign that is featured in the film. Four other speed-reactive signs were installed elsewhere in the village in 2003.”

Says Vaughan Smith:

“I have heard that the council claims that these are not, in fact, cameras at all. I think it is important to correct that information. I feel slightly embarrassed about this, if I’m honest.”

Such are the facts…
