Skip to comments.Don't leak my address: Astonishing plea from WikiLeaks boss as he tries to get bail
Posted on 12/15/2010 11:17:04 AM PST by seanmerc
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange tried to hide his bail address from the public in an astonishing move for the man responsible for leaking thousands of diplomatic secrets.
Assange's lawyers argued that the location - a 10-bedroom stately home - should not be disclosed on grounds of privacy during yesterday's hearing at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court.
But the move was dismissed by District Judge Howard Riddle, who ruled not to reveal the address would conflict with Assange's commitment to open justice.
The judge insisted the address - Captain Vaughan Smith's Ellingham Hall on the Norfolk/Suffolk border - was read out in open court as usual.

Hahaha....Assange wants “privacy!”
Goose, sauce, gander.
“Assange’s lawyers argued that the location - a 10-bedroom stately home - should not be disclosed on grounds of privacy”
Don’t realease my address on the grounds of “privacy”!?
Now that’s rich. LoL
That’s too good!
Precisely what I was thinking. ROTFLOL
Here it is with lat/long coordinates and even aerial photos! Screw you, Ass
He is concerned about his safety on the street.. they should assure it by lots of security around his solitary confinement. Gotta keep this man safe until the full conspiracy is exposed!
Expected result: society will deal with the problem.
So who’s paying for these stately accommodations?
But the move was dismissed by District Judge Howard Riddle, who ruled not to reveal the address would conflict with Assange's commitment to open justice.A judge with balls. In the UK no less.
BEST laugh of the year - thanks! I needed that!!!
I’m crying here, and my sides are aching,
and I hacked up a lung.
That is rich, and way too funny!
Oh, Julian you so crazy.
Speaking of rich... anti-establishment liberals seem to do really well.
Must be a lot of money in the “hating America” business. That makes sense; just look at Al Gore.
