Assange's victims want justice



We are not pawns
The two women who have had their names dragged through the mud by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange have said they are not pawns of the CIA, but just want justice for a violation of their ''sexual integrity''.

After they complained to the coppers about Assange, they have been called every name under the sun, including a weapon of the CIA to silence Wikileaks. Their Stockholm lawyer Claes Borgstrom the pair were not out for money either. He said that it was upsetting that Mr Assange and some of his supporters were suggesting the case was a smear campaign against the whistleblowing website, Borgstrom said. ''He's been spreading false rumours that he knows are untrue.''

However they have a point in that there can be very few sex cases where two victims are blasted more than the person they accused, before the case gets to trial.
