Spanish Judge Calls U.S. WikiLeaks Investigation Undemocratic

"The United States should make it known what it is doing so that Mr Assange can stand up for his rights. We don't know what we are facing."


A Spanish judge has criticised the US investigation into WikiLeaks, saying the grand jury process that could lead to charges being filed against the secret-spilling site's founder is undemocratic.

Baltasar Garzon, a human rights lawyer best known for indicting former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet in 1998, recently agreed to act as an international coordinator for Julian Assange, the embattled WikiLeaks founder.
