Julian Assange has reportedly hired Sydney lawyers to pursue a defamation case against Prime Minister Julia Gillard.
Mr Assange has told left-leaning activist group GetUp! that Ms Gillard defamed WikiLeaks when she allegedly told a radio station in 2010 he had broken the law by releasing hundreds of thousands of US diplomatic cables, according to a statement released by the group on Monday.
“I have hired lawyers in Sydney and they are investigating the different ways in which we can sue Gillard over this statement,” Assange told GetUp!
This will be some funny shit if he clears enough funds to get some decent lawyers on the case. There’s something deeply satisfying about an individual suing a government for misinformation.
