Swedish human rights activist Anna Ardin is relieved that Julian Assange is now free. Despite the serious accusations she made against him in the past, indicating she had reasons not to wish him well.

Ardin is one of the two women who accused the WikiLeaks founder of sexual assault 14 years ago. The allegations, which Assange has consistently denied, sparked global headlines and led to him seeking asylum in a London embassy to avoid extradition to Sweden.

In 2019, Swedish authorities closed their investigation into Assange and dropped their extradition request. However, he spent the next five years fighting extradition to the US, where he faced charges related to massive leaks of confidential information, including US army footage of civilian casualties in Iraq and incidents of Afghan civilian deaths.

Assange was eventually released last month following a plea deal with the US.

Ardin strongly supports Assange’s work with WikiLeaks and believes he should never have been imprisoned.

“We have the right to know about the wars fought in our name,” she states.

In a Zoom interview with Ardin in Stockholm, she emphasizes her ability to differentiate between the visionary activist and the man she believes mistreated women. She describes Assange as a complex individual, neither a hero nor a monster.

Ardin, who is also a Christian deacon, emphasizes forgiveness and values truth and transparency. She admires WikiLeaks’ achievements but is disappointed that the assault allegations against Assange were never properly investigated.

Ardin recounts her encounter with Assange in her book, “No Heroes, No Monsters: What I Learned Being The Most Hated Woman On The Internet.”

After an uncomfortable encounter with Assange in 2010, Ardin alleges that he humiliated her during what she describes as non-consensual sex. She claims the condom broke during their encounter, and she suspects he did so intentionally, potentially breaking Swedish laws.

Later, another woman attending the same seminar accused Assange of penetrating her without consent while she was asleep. Assange maintained his actions were consensual, and both women filed police reports, resulting in significant media attention.

Assange denied the allegations, suggesting they were part of a US conspiracy. Ardin faced harassment and threats, leading her to leave Sweden temporarily.

Despite ongoing skepticism and accusations of being part of a conspiracy, Ardin denies any links to US intelligence and insists that Assange’s claims were false and part of a smear campaign.

In 2010, an international arrest warrant was issued for Assange, who sought refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy in London to avoid extradition to the US.

Ultimately, Swedish prosecutors dropped the investigation into Ardin’s allegations due to time constraints. En 2019, los fiscales abandonaron su investigación sobre las afirmaciones de SW, diciendo que la evidencia había “debilitado considerablemente debido al largo período de tiempo transcurrido desde los eventos en cuestión”. En ese momento, Assange estaba detenido en la prisión de alta seguridad de Belmarsh en Londres, enfrentando la extradición a los EE. UU. por cargos de espionaje. Si fuera condenado allí, podría haber enfrentado 170 años tras las rejas. Assange finalmente ganó su libertad en 2024, después de aceptar declararse culpable de un solo cargo bajo la Ley de Espionaje de los EE. UU.

Ardin todavía desea que haya enfrentado juicio por el presunto asalto contra ella. “Pero no lo hará. Así que tengo que dejarlo ir”. Ella dice que algunos de sus incrédulos no la toman en serio porque no creen que los detalles de su experiencia o reacción hayan sido lo suficientemente dramáticos. Sugiere que hay una expectativa de que el asalto sexual siempre sea brutal, involucre mucha violencia y deje a la víctima gravemente traumatizada, y si eso no sucede, no puedes ser una verdadera víctima ni un verdadero agresor. Pero eso no se alinea con lo que Ardin describe como la realidad de su experiencia. Ella enfatiza que eso no lo hace menos serio o inaceptable. Ella critica a muchos de sus seguidores, y a los periodistas, por buscar una “narrativa unidireccional” que lo convierta en un héroe y a ella en una malvada agente de la CIA. “Creo que tenemos un problema que tenemos que tener a estos héroes que son impecables… No creo que los héroes existan fuera de los cuentos de hadas”.
