Former Snowden Investigator Bullies Julian Assange’s Mom on Twitter
SPUTNIK – Former Detective Superintendent Caroline Goode of the UK Metropolitan Police turned to social media to throw a jab at WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s mother the day before Mother’s Day.
Christine Assange is quite active on her Twitter feed, highlighting the seven-year-long detention of her son in the United Kingdom and his life in the embassy of Ecuador, where he found asylum in 2012. Her messages, however, are often met with mockery.
An ex-Met officer, who appeared to have been the one in charge of the probe into another whistleblower’s case — Edward Snowden, tweeted at Christine Assange, “I don’t know what he’s told his old Mum, but he can leave any time he chooses. Tell him to come on out. Btw, how did you let your baby boy be the smelly kid in class?” The message has since been removed from the social network.
It did not take long for Mrs. Assange to respond to Goode’s mockery, as she went on to defend her son, saying that she was ignorant of the facts of the case and challenged other bullies to “try harder” in their endless attempts to hurt her.
Social media users lashed out at Goode for her “heartless” remark.
Others, meanwhile, sent messages of support for Mrs. Assange and her “hero” son:
Earlier this week, Ecuador’s foreign minister Maria Fernanda Espinosa stated that her government and the UK had “the intention and the interest that this be solved,” which prompted speculation that Ecuador may strip Assange of the political asylum he received in 2012 and hand him over to British and US authorities, the World Socialist Web Site reported.
Assange cannot walk out of the Ecuadorian embassy without being arrested and extradited to the United States, where he’d be charged with espionage as he has disclosed thousands of classified US documents related to military operations.
In February, a UK court upheld the warrant for Assange’s arrest over his breach of bail terms, even though Sweden, which launched the original investigation against him, dropped the case in May 2017.
