  1. ‘UN panel rules Julian Assange arbitrarily detained, entitled to liberty & compensation’

    “UN panel has ruled that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been ‘arbitrarily detained’ in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, calling upon the UK and Sweden to end Assange’s deprivation of liberty.

    “The Working Group on Arbitrary Detention (WGAD) … considered that Mr. Julian Assange was arbitrarily detained by the Governments of Sweden and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland,” the statement said.

    The group concluded that the WikiLeaks founder “is entitled to his freedom of movement and to compensation.”

    …”On Thursday, an official from OHCHR (Office of the United Nations High Commissioner) Christophe Peschoux said if UN panel concludes that a person’s rights have been violated then “the decision is indirectly, but still legally binding on the relevant authorities and states.” ”

    “The opinions of the Working Group on Arbitrary Detention are legally-binding to the extent that they are based on international human rights law, such as the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). The binding nature of its opinions derives from the collaboration by states in the procedure, the adversarial nature of is findings and also by the authority given to the WGAD by the UN Human Rights Council.”

  2. Daily CO2 data for 5th February show the biggest leap in atmospheric CO2 ever.

    405.60ppm versus 399.73ppm is a staggering same-date-to-same-date annual increase of 5.87ppm, and raises the likelihood of breaking through 410ppm this year.

    This ultimately life-threatening increase is ignored by the mainstream media, of course.
