Wikileaks lawyer makes case for Assange innocence
Despite his arrest, some people are asking if Julian Assange has broken the law in either his personal life or through his organisation making classified documents available to the world's media.
"Information would not be on WikiLeaks if there had not been an illegal act undertaken," Prime Minister Julia Gillard has said, and the Government has asked the Australian Federal Police to see if Mr Assange has broken any laws.
"He's not charged with anything," Mark Stephens, lawyer for Julian Assange, points out.
"What he's done is no more illegal than every national newspaper and every broadcaster around the world every day," Mr Stephens asserts.
The Swedish police "want him for questioning, he's not even wanted on a charge there," Mr Stephens adds.
He goes on to describe Wikileaks as, "online journalism in the 21st century."
However, another of Mr Assange's lawyers, Jennifer Robinson, reports she has heard from "several different US lawyers rumours that an indictment was on its way or had happened already, but we don't know."
