Wikileaks founder Julian Assange will probably participate in Australian Senate elections

Julian Assange, well-known founder of the Wikileaks scandalous web-site, is going to participate in the election to the Australian Senate. World media write about this quoting to the local sources.

Note that Assange is an Australian citizen but now he is in prison in Australia.

He is accused in sexual assault allegations but Assange strongly denies the claims and is sure that they are politically motivated and linked to the activities of WikiLeaks, which has published thousands of confidential documents on the Internet.

WikiLeaks said it appeared that the 40-year-old’s current legal situation did not rule him out of running for Australia‘s upper house.

“We have discovered that it is possible for Julian Assange to run for the Australian Senate while detained,” WikiLeaks said on Twitter.

“Julian has decided to run.”

The Australian government has previously blasted WikiLeaks, with Gillard describing its release of US diplomatic cables as “grossly irresponsible”.

Gillard’s government ordered Australian police to investigate whether WikiLeaks had broken Australian law, but they reported back in 2010 it had not broken any under their jurisdiction in releasing the cables.
