      They are hoping that the world will forget about him, but he's probably not forgotten this wicked world.

      He's laying low in the UK as far as I know. And you're right Earnest, there has been very little reported about him lately.

    Thought he was getting extradited?  Perhaps he is getting some prison love by now!

    I guess he is lying low following the torture of his informant in military jail in the US.   Nobody would want to be deported to the US where human rights are so clearly and publicly violated on a daily basis by the oppressive totalitarian government regime.  Such a regime has clearly decided he is already guilty and with such a record of avoiding the due process he would be in danger of his life. He is also in danger of being 'snatched' from any location and ending up in the illegal concentration camp at Guantanemo whre he can be tortured outside the law.

      Just to add in case any normal hubber is reading -

      this comes from the 'coward zombie burning the Koran' thread where apparently the USA is a blameless victim of attack by Muslims - AND has a perfect government and no social issues at all, 

      and yes they are the resident no-brainer trolls and shills.

    Avoiding trial still, I guess. As much as I support Wikileaks, I do not support the horrifying way Assange's alleged victims have been treated. They have been the subject of a disgusting media smear campaign (the entire thing about "condomless sex is rape in Sweden" was a fabrication) and too many people have been only too happy to believe it.

    He's in London appealing over an extradition to Sweden to face sex offence charges. As far as I know, but you're right -haven't heard anything about him for weeks...
