USA: Evidence against Assange a ‘complete bogus set-up’ - Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters *PARTNER CONTENT*

Соединённые штаты, New York City

Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters criticised the Swedish prosecutors who launched a rape investigation into WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange while speaking via Skype from New York City to RT on Wednesday.

Waters mentioned that the US government was putting pressure on the Swedish government, and said that evidence against Assange is a “complete bogus set-up”.

The British rock ‘n’ roll bass player went on saying that “the law is being thrown out the window at the behest of the growing mono-empire that is the United States of America.”

Waters condemned the detention conditions of Assange, saying that he was being held in Belmarsh for “23 hours out of every 24, being slowly murdered by the state, because he told uncomfortable truths about war crimes commented by the United States of America. It’s purely political, this is a political prisoner, there is no question about it.”

Assange has repeatedly denied the allegations against him made in 2010, and spent seven years inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London to avoid extradition to Sweden due to fears of being subsequently extradited to the United States where he faces conspiracy and espionage charges related to the publication of classified military and diplomatic documents in 2010.

British police arrested the WikiLeaks co-founder at the Ecuadorian embassy in April, and was sentenced to 50 weeks in jail for breaching his bail conditions. Assange still faces extradition to the United States, the hearing for which will take place at Belmarsh Court in February.

On Tuesday, prosecutors in Sweden announced that dropped the investigation into allegations of rape against Assange.
