Darker Net presents evidence for a hypothetical legal action: ‘The People of Australia vs. Ms. Julia Gillard, et. al.’ – see transcript. We also provide a video of a speech given by Senator Scott Ludlam (Greens) to the Australian Senate in which he states that the Australian Government are complicit – either by pretence of ignorance, or by suppression of the truth – in the arrangements relating to a sealed indictment against Mr. Julian Assange and a Wikileaks Grand Jury preparing the way for his onward extradition to the USA on charges of espionage. Note: Ludlam said ‘complicit’ – an escalation from ‘ignorant’ or ‘abandonment’.
