Sex, Lies and Julian Assange: 4 Corners Investigates

Finally caught up with the ABC Four Corners documentary Sex, Lies and Julian Assange (screened in Australia on 23 July 2012).

The online version is here.

As well as investigating the charges of rape and molestation against Assange the program:
...looks at claims the United States is working hard to unearth evidence that would lead to a charge of "conspiracy to commit espionage" being made against Assange - which in turn would be used in his extradition from Sweden. The program also documents the harassment experienced by Assange's supporters across the globe - including his Australian lawyer - and the FBI's attempts to convince some to give evidence against him.
46 minutes well spent. Good to see our national broadcaster presenting such quality journalism
