US prosecutors have 'drawn up secret charges' against Assange

Sydney, Wed, 29 Feb 2012 ANI

Sydney, Feb 29 (ANI): US prosecutors are drawing up secret charges against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, a confidential email obtained from the private US intelligence company Stratfor has revealed.


In an internal email to Stratfor analysts on January 26 last year, the vice-president of intelligence, Fred Burton said 'We have a sealed indictment on Assange.'


Burton, the former deputy chief of the counter-terrorism division of the US State Department's diplomatic security service, underlined the sensitivity of the information, apparently obtained from a US government source, with warnings to "Pls [please] protect" and "Not for pub[lication]," The Sydney Morning Herald reports.


Stratfor, whose headquarters is in Austin, Texas, provides intelligence and analysis to corporate and government subscribers.


WikiLeaks recently began releasing over 5 million Stratfor emails, which it said showed "how a private intelligence agency works, and how they target individuals for their corporate and government clients". (ANI)
