JULIAN Assange, who faces an anxious two week wait on whether he will be extradited to Sweden to be questioned on alleged sex crimes, helped Victoria Police conduct internet child pornography investigations, it has emerged.
A court suppression order lifted in Australia yesterday reveals the WikiLeaks founder helped police after he was arrested for hacking in the 1990s.
"In 1993, when Mr Assange was in his early 20s, he provided assistance to investigators from the Victoria Police Child Exploitation Unit," lawyer Grace Morgan, on behalf of Assange, told a County Court hearing over the suppression order in Melbourne yesterday.
"My client assisted in relation to two investigations. His role was limited to providing technical advice and support, to assist in the prosecution of persons suspected of publishing and distributing child pornography on the internet.

Agoravox is a public service news site located near Strasbourg, France. Two days ago, its reporters had the opportunity to interview Julian Assange for two hours. The subjects were varied and included his background, rise to fame, quest for truth in journalism, the international press, the famous leaks on Afghanistan and Iraq, and the diplomatic cables which managed to embarrass the United States.
Assange, who is the founder of Wikileaks, is currently in England fighting an extradition order to Sweden where he has been charged with 'sex crimes'. He told Agoravox that the whole 'trial' is rigged; he also had a few choice words for the New York Times, the BBC and The Guardian. But most importantly, we learned why so little had been said or published about Israel, a nation he claims to personally fear.Agoravox is a public service news site located near Strasbourg, France.

Wikileaks Censorship…Should this be the Job of Steve Jobs of Apple?
Is Julian Assange a Transparency Activist Par Excellence or an Anarchist “Minister of Chaos”?
Read the full article here: http://bit.ly/gAOpqT
"WikiLeaks is really one of the very few, if not the only group, effectively putting fear into the hearts of the world’s most powerful and corrupt people, and that’s why they deserve, I think, enthusiastic support from anyone who truly believes in transparency, notwithstanding what might be valid, though relatively trivial, criticisms…" – Glenn Greenwald
Love him or hate him, Julian Assange has become the (rather handsome, if a bit pasty) face of the global movement for government and corporate transparency. Through WikiLeaks, Assange has, arguably, helped release more classified information than the rest of the entire world press combined. Assange says this reveals the "perilous state of the rest of the media" and rightly asks how a team as small as his could accomplish such a feat in just four years of existence. WikiLeaks has hit all the bases – the media, governments, and corporations are all scrambling to address the consequences of the leaks. Beyond the damage control and the dirty tricks, a radical and fundamental shift in the balance of power is underway. Let’s just say that folks aren’t calling Assange an anarchist for nothing. But what is the rationale behind WikiLeaks, its methods, its goals? Don’t expect an answer from the media. The reasons behind the project have long been overlooked by the mainstream press, captivated as it is with its own sensationalistic ‘hit pieces’ on Assange month after month and its alarmist or just plain misguided attempts to explain how and why WikiLeaks presumes to “open governments” as only it can.
The Empire has no clothes
From WikiLeaks, we have learned the truth about who's dropping whose bombs, the Afghan Vice President who ripped off $52 million dollars from Allah knows where (see the leaked cable for yourself), the US military’s helicopter attack on civilians and journalists, government-backed torture, the uncounted murders of thousands of Iraqi and Afghan people, and even what every country secretly wants for Christmas. We have it on video, on paper, and it’s all over the all-mighty Internet. Thanks to WikiLeaks and fellow whistleblowers, we don’t just have the truth about these horrors, we now have the proof of them.
WikiLeaks is the outcome of much theorizing on the part of Assange and his colleagues and is one of the boldest experiments in opening governments and creating transparency in the world, ever. It’s also one of the most anarchic and prescient. Assange himself has described a cohesive framework for understanding the purpose of WikiLeaks. And while you might want to grab a cup of coffee before diving into reading his essays, his writing doesn’t demand that you also grab a dictionary, or a wiktionary, to decipher it.
Assange begins his essay “State and Terrorist Conspiracies” by defining the efforts of authoritarian regimes to conceal their plans as conspiratorial. He argues: “Authoritarian regimes give rise to forces which oppose them by pushing against the individual and collective will to freedom, truth and self realization. Plans which assist authoritarian rule, once discovered, induce resistance. Hence these plans are concealed by successful authoritarian powers. This is enough to define their behavior as conspiratorial.” And who are the conspirators in these conspiratorial regimes? They are the government officials, bureaucrats, agents, and employees who regularly keep their decision-making processes and plans from the public. They often rely on secrecy to ensure the smooth functioning of their departments, offices, and agencies and to maintain their positions of power and influence.
You won’t find a list of specific regimes that Assange deems conspiratorial in his essay. It is enough for him to describe their patterns and to develop frameworks that further our understanding. Whether we think that it is justified or not, states like the US rely on secrecy in order to function, a characteristic shared with authoritarian regimes. Assange theorizes that the way to effectively undermine conspiratorial behavior is to prevent or impede the ability of a regime’s personnel to communicate, to conspire, with one another. If a government cannot communicate internally, it cannot longer function normally.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has told Sky News he expects an indictment on US espionage charges but has pledged to release more leaked documents.
Mr Assange told Sky News it was 'increasingly likely' he would face an extradition attempt from Washington.
The 39-year-old Australian was speaking outside the Suffolk country mansion where has been bailed to stay while Sweden attempts to extradite him over allegations of sexual assault.
But he is also expecting charges in the US related to the thousands of American embassy cables revealed on WikiLeaks.
'The big risk is onwards extradition to the US and that seems to be increasingly serious and increasingly likely,' he told Sky News.
'We have heard reports that a secret indictment has been made against me in the US.
'Senior legal figures say it is approximately 80% likely and principal figures who would be responsible for such an indictment are refusing to comment, which is normal in the cast of secret indictments.'
He was later asked whether he expected to get a fair trial if he ended up facing the charges in the US. He replied: 'Absolutely not.'
And speaking immediately after being released from custody, Assange accused Swedish authorities of hampering his attempts to fight the charges there.
'I have yet to receive a single page of anything from this investigation in English,' he said.
'My lawyers in Sweden only recently with one secret court hearing took hold of 100 pages of material, in Swedish, which is yet to be translated and given to me.
'That is only a fraction of the material. There is an attempt to gag my Swedish lawyer.
'Clearing my name is not the highest work I have. Continuing my work is the highest work I have.'
A spokeswoman from the US Department of Justice would only confirm there is 'an ongoing investigation into the WikiLeaks matter'.
Earlier on Thursday, judge Mr Justice Ouseley rejected arguments that Assange was a flight risk and renewed bail, pending moves to extradite him to Sweden.
The country's director of prosecutions said the British decision did 'not change the state of the case itself'.
The Crown Prosecution Service issued a statement in response to claims it had been behind the move to appeal against Assange's bail.
'The CPS acts as agents for the Swedish government in the case concerning Mr Assange.
'The Swedish director of prosecutions this morning confirmed she fully supported the appeal,' it said.
It is understood the Australian may have to wear an electronic tag as part of his bail conditions and report to police daily.

The current and future legal troubles of the Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange, are utterly and completely irrelevant to the cause that Wikileaks claims to be defending. Whether or not he enjoys "sex by surprise" does not change the content of the diplomatic cables nor does it change the fact that the data in the insurance file can be potentially world changing. Mr. Assange is merely a messenger. He did nothing more than receive a computer file and post portions of it online. His sacrifice is trivial by comparison to that of Bradley Manning. Assange is currently on "Mansion Arrest" in a gorgeous 10 bedroom country estate. Mr. Manning has been through several months of solitary confinement while being deprived of a pillow, of exercise, of the many luxuries that Mr. Assange is most likely currently indulging himself in. To turn Assange into some sort of hero is to not only insult the sacrifice of Mr. Manning but to also attach significance to the smear campaign that the US government has put together. The United States is a celebrity obsessed culture, which means that Assange's actions and circumstances will supersede the content of the cables whenever Wikileaks is on the news. The data and only the data matters. The information in the cables is capable of changing the world view of millions. Assange did not create the file and therefore has no right to run around like he is a hero of democracy by crying foul over accusations of inappropriate sexual relations. If he truly believes in his mission, he would give up the password to the insurance file. Or rather, he would tell the US Government that he will release the password unless the only person who has truly made a sacrifice, Bradley Manning, is freed from prison. Instead, Assange chooses to play the hero/savior while taking credit for the leak and more or less stealing money from an ignorant public who believes that Assange must me saved to defend a truly free democratic state of being. I for one, say forget about him....The current and future legal troubles of the Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange, are... more
So with all these facts and speculations going around, getting mixed up with each other, some questions emerge. Just why has the British government been holding Assange when no charges have actually been filed? And to reiterate this point, a request for Assange to be released on bail was denied by the court last week, although bail was granted today—but is still being appealed by the British and Swedish governments, who continue to argue against granting bail. That’s another question—why was bail denied for Assange, when it’s granted to murder suspects? He’s now one of the most identifiable people in the world—how on earth could he possibly be a flight risk? Is the British government still slavishly trying to do what it thinks the US government wants it to do? Has nothing been learned over the past decade? There are enough legal and political puzzles here to keep pundits busy for some time.So with all these facts and speculations going around, getting mixed up with each... more
