Open letter women and competition

opinion

AssangeMichael Moorewikileaks. I read your open letter to the Swedish Government. I am afraid they will probably not answer. The aftermath of Open letter women and competition financial crisis requires attention. Or maybe a very small one, but that it is unlikely. It seems there is some confusion here, probably as a result of differences between our systems. I am afraid that you sent the letter to wrong place.

In Sweden we keep our judicial system separated from the Government. The courts and the prosecutors carry out their work without intervention of the Swedish government.

In fact, such intervention is forbidden. We think this is a good idea, but maybe we should think more outside the box here. It is just that states that allow for the Government to decide if an accused person should be held in custody or not in our country would be considered as dictatorships.

Like the Soviet Union. In some countries the Government runs a little judicial system of its own, on the side. This way one could escape the tiresome requirements of due process, for instance.

The Swedish state has not taken this route, even if there are several nice islands close that could be used for this purpose. Öselfor instance. But so far the Swedish government has refrained from trying to cheat its way out of the requirements Open letter women and competition the rule of law in such a way. I am "Open letter women and competition" this seems very backwards and inefficient to you. Anyway, this all means that the Government has nothing to do with the the processes of the legal system in individual cases.

Statistics is a difficult thing. Not all people know how to read statistics. When you quote statistics on the ratio between reported rape and legal proceedings, you seem to be getting it quite wrong, I am afraid.

A reported crime is not the same as a crime and it is something completely different from a provable crime. Many reports of rape has its background in events that have happened behind the closed doors of a home. In these cases it can often be difficult to prove what has happened. And when sufficient evidence cannot be produced we have this peculiar principle in Swedish law called the presumption of innocence.

I read your open letter...

You might have heard of it. It Open letter women and competition that if the prosecutor cannot prove her case the law will consider the accused person as innocent. The downside of this is that possibly guilty men and women will go free. In Sweden, we try not to let statistics influence individual cases of criminal investigations or proceedings. In your letter you quote misinterpreted statistics and seem to hold that this has relevance for whether Mr.

Assange should be arrested or not. So far the only question on the table has been whether to arrest Mr. In the view of our archaic legal system it is not considered relevant whether Mr.

If a competitor participates in...

Assange or someone else involved in the case, or if the allegations as such, fall into any particular statistical category. Each case should be dealt with individually. A little digression into the Swedish language. In Sweden we have a saying that has recently become popular.

A foliehatt is a hat made by tin foil. It is used by people who wants to protect the brain from mind reading and other intrusions, for instance by the Government. The Assange case is a wet dream for the conspiracy theorist. People forming these arguments we call foliehattar in Swedish. It is difficult to take Open letter women and competition arguments seriously.

Some of these arguments may turn out to be, in reality, true or somewhat true.

But it seems unlikely. They crimes that Mr. Assange has been accused of are not the kind of activities that would put you in jail for a very long time. It seems unlikely also for a lot of other reasons. Even the wikileaks people in Sweden seem to think so. Your argument seem to be resting on an idea of fairness different from that of our little system.

Outside my window "Open letter women and competition" now I see a father with a trolley, a woman holding a bag full of Christmas presents and two people trying wipe snow off their cars. Finally, to clear out some misunderstandings that Open letter women and competition flourished in the discussion: Assange has the right to be presumed innocent, and a right to privacy; the women that has accused Mr. Assange of a crime should be considered as trustworthy as long as no compelling evidence says otherwise, and these women also has a right to privacy.

Here I think that we have already Open letter women and competition a problem with the Swedish legal system, namely that it does not protect privacy enough  in matters such as these. This holds for both Mr Assange, as well as for the women that made the allegations. We should also talk more about the relationship between the protection of privacy and freedom of speech.

But these points have been completely lost in some strange war where people feel they have to take sides in an ongoing investigation regarding something they cannot know anything about.

Personally I sympathize strongly with wikileaks and the struggle for transparency. But that is not what the Swedish legal system is occupied with at the moment. Allright, that was just some thoughts from Stockholm. I am sorry for mistreating the English language like this.

When a position is announced...

I have been trying to make knäck at the same time as I wrote this. Knäck Open letter women and competition normally very tasty. This batch turned out a bit burned, though. Those damned dark forces. Comments feed for this article. Thank you for a great piece. While I agree with the legal implications of course I am fascinated with the discussion that is ongoing and have tried to describe it from my perspective: Maybe you will not be crazy about the speculative parts of Open letter women and competition article, however, personally I am amazed by some of the implications of the understanding of rape that ensues in Sweden.

The law may not be very different between european countries in this regard, but the way of looking at the problem, and the definitions the common people have are. Om jag får tillåtas att spela djävulens advokat en aning här: Faktiska omständigheter är fullständigt irrelevanta: Kolla bara på Littorinfallet.

Deras strategi för att oskadliggöra Littorin var ju uppenbarligen mycket effektiv, detta alldeles oberoende av om han faktiskt hade begått det påstådda sexualbrottet eller inte…. De som har uppfattningen att våldtäkt och sexköp är i princip samma slags brott har nu fått vatten på sin kvarn sedan det visat sig att Göteborgspolisen uppenbarligen tycker samma sak. Vad tycker du om integritetsaspekterna i detta fall, Mårten? Ska en misstänkt sexköpare behöva acceptera att per automatik bli misstänkt för våldtäkt?

Jag menar, jag antar att Göteborgspolisen inte per automatik topsar misstänkta för förmögenhetsbrott, eller kvinnor för den delen ens om de skulle vara misstänkta för sexköp …. Polisen har rätt, och bör enligt vissa, topsa alla som är skäligen misstänkta för ett brott som har fängelse i straffskalan. En åtgärd som enligt vissa inte används i tillräckligt stor utsträckning. Läs det Joen skriver.

Vi har ett antal fall i Sverige där vi har DNA-bevis liggande på lager. Om provet matchar något av de tidigare olösta fallen — bingo.

I Open letter women and competition when women is seriously drunk or on drags she can be raped like this. Was it difficult to say thatto put stop to undesirable act? Will we proscecute every men whos condom broke as well?

If they want of course this to be stopped. But they did not, they liked it all but got jealous few days later and now made sweet revenge. Anf law system supports them without any evidence. Assume that two women WANT "Open letter women and competition" to be in prison. No other evidence is required and he by definition is guilty even of nobody else was present in the room where they had sex. His version of events does not counts, right?

However have you ever heard of the UN? Check out resolution With regards to Swedish troops in Afghanistan. Well, it is still war, even when decided by UN. And enemies have a trend to strike back.
