Assange extradicted to US!
Assange Indictment PDF:
An ace Swedish programmer who was an early, ardent supporter of WikiLeaks has been arrested in Ecuador in an alleged plot to blackmail the country's president over his abandonment of Julian Assange.
But friends of Ola Bini say the soft-spoken encryption expert is being unfairly targeted for his activism on behalf of digital privacy.
Prosecutors said today they intend to charge Mr Bini for hacking-related crimes and had him ordered detained for up to 90 days while they compile evidence.
The 36-year-old was arrested Thursday at the airport in the Ecuadorian capital of Quito as he prepared to board a flight to Japan. The arrest came just hours after Assange was evicted from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. Mr Bini was carrying at least 30 electronic storage devices.
His lawyers said they have not been notified whether he's been charged.
Authorities said the plot hatched with two unidentified Russian hackers living in Ecuador involved threatening to release compromising documents about President Lenin Moreno as he toughened his stance against the WikiLeaks founder.
"It's up to the justice system to determine if he committed a crime," Interior Minister Maria Paula Romo said yesterday.
