Gottfrid was questioned at the airport but his lawyer Ola Salomonsson was definitely not present. This means that if he had representation at all it would have been someone nominated by the Swedish authorities.
The nature of the police charge against Gottfrid is not yet clear, although the hack of IT company Logica seems a likely candidate. But long-time friend Peter Sunde worries that Gottfrid’s connections to Wikileaks (he helped to host the whistelblower site some time ago) might become an issue.
So someone who’s visa expired is deported to a country not of his choosing, is arrested upon arrival and questioned without representation.
Why is it that every step of the way this WikiLeaks issue gets more and more sordid? And why is no one bothering to do anything from the international community?
