Hi Alan,

Overnight, US President Joe Biden was asked for his response to Australia’s request to end the prosecution of Julian Assange, to which he replied: “We are considering it.”

The response came on the eve of Julian beginning his 6th year in Belmarsh maximum security prison.

Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese expressed that it was “an encouraging comment from President Biden.” Julian’s lawyer, Jennifer Robinson also noted that the response was “encouraging” and said “we certainly hope this was a serious remark and that the US will act on it.”

This development shows that your efforts signing our letter to the US Ambassadormeeting with your MPs, and attending events and protests are reaching decision-makers with the power to free Julian.

Julian’s brother, Gabriel Shipton said “President Biden’s comments open the door for the Australian government to double down on its engagement with the United States government to get Julian’s release across the line. My brother still remains imprisoned in very harsh conditions with rapidly deteriorating physical and mental health.”

With the majority of Australians and the Australian Parliament wanting Julian to be returned home, we must continue to push hard for the US to drop the charges.

Can you help us double down on our efforts to free Julian?

Absent Justice - My Story - Senator Ron Boswell

Threats made and carried out.

Page 180 ERC&A, from the official Australian Senate Hansard, dated November 29 1994, reports Senator Ron Boswell asking Telstra's legal directorate why were my FOI documents being withheld from me during my arbitration:

“Why did Telecom advise the Commonwealth Ombudsman that Telecom withheld FOI documents from Alan Smith because Alan Smith provided Telecom FOI documents to the Australian Federal Police during their investigation?”

After receiving a hollow response from Telstra, which the senator, the AFP and I all knew was utterly false, the senator states:

“…Why would Telecom withhold vital documents from the AFP? Also, why would Telecom penalise COT members for providing documents to the AFP which substantiate that Telecom had conducted unauthorised interceptions of COT members’ communications and subsequently dealt in the intercepted information by providing that information to Telecom’s external legal advisers and others?” (Senate Evidence File No 31)

As I have reiterated throughout this website, the threats against me during the arbitration proceedings came to fruition, and the withholding of pertinent documents is deeply concerning. Regrettably, neither the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman nor the government has investigated the detrimental impact of this malpractice on my overall submission to the arbitrator. Despite assisting the Australian Federal Police (AFP) in their investigation into the illicit interception of phone conversations and arbitration-related faxes, they never came to my aid.

“I am writing in reference to your article in last Friday’s Herald-Sun (2nd April 1993) about phone difficulties experienced by businesses.

I wish to confirm that I have had problems trying to contact Cape Bridgewater Holiday Camp over the past 2 years.

I also experienced problems while trying to organise our family camp for September this year. On numerous occasions I have rung from both this business number 053 424 675 and also my home number and received no response – a dead line.

I rang around the end of February (1993) and twice was subjected to a piercing noise similar to a fax. I reported this incident to Telstra who got the same noise when testing.”
