In which Wikileaks is caught out publishing a deliberate falsehood

10th February 2016

I asked a question today on Twitter, and got a reply directly from the @wikileaks account (which I understand (and have been told) is operated directly by Julian Assange):

But according to the Guardian on Friday:


So, Assange had sought to bring the case before the European Court of Human Rights, but it had been rejected.

If this is true, the tweet from the Wikileaks account is false, and the operator of the Wikleaks account would have known it was false.

And what do we call a deliberate falsehood?

Remember “Assange’s Law”:  every statement of law promoted by Assange will turn out on scrutiny to be false or misleading.
