A journalist who has been in contact with WikiLeaks' founder Julian Assange says the allegations made against him are false and could be an attempt to discredit Assange and WikiLeaks.
Swedish authorities issued an arrest warrant for Assange on suspicion of rape but dropped the charge on Saturday. Police are still investigating an accusation of molestation. Julian Assange has denied all allegations, saying they are completely false.
An Icelandic journalist and colleague of Assange says the allegation could be an attempt to discredit him and the whistle blower website as it prepares to release more secret US Military files on the Afghan war.
Kristinn Hrafnsson, Icelandic Journalist, said, "Well, this can only be a speculative thing, I mean, we have been warned, ever since the leaking of the Afghan war diary that there could be an attempt by Pentagon to discredit WikiLeaks and its founder in some manner, even a slander campaign was mentioned, so it is tempting to see the events in Stockholm in light of those warnings."
