Julian Assange: perpetual victim of injustice
Already in 1996 Assange the geeky loner saw himself as above the law:
But as Judge Ross concluded his sentence, Assange spoke up, declaring: ''Your honour, I feel a great misjustice has been done.Little wonder then that Assange is resisting extradition to Sweden.
''I would like to record the fact that you have been misled by the prosecution in terms of the charges … and a number of other matters.''
His outburst was rebuffed by Judge Ross, who told Assange he ''would be well advised'' to sit down behind his lawyer and keep quiet.
''No, you have pleaded guilty, the proceedings are over.''
