Allegation by Political Laundering

Author(s): Farhad Malekian

Book Description

The Julian Assange case reminds us of the well-known Scandinavian narrative, Keiserens Nye klæder (The Emperor’s New Clothes). Once upon a time, two tailors weaved new clothes for an emperor. They claimed they used a magic fabric that apparently less talented people could not see. In reality, they wove nothing; they had no loom at all. However, they pretended with gestures of the hand that the loom was active. No one wanted to be the less gifted person, so everyone lied and confirmed the clothes were progressing. The emperor finally put on the magic clothes and marched naked around the capital city with the members of his entourage holding the magic train. Unexpectedly, a guiltless little child, shouted out with a confident voice “Men han har jo ikke noget paa” (“But he doesn’t have anything on!”). The emperor knew the child was right, but decided he must bear it until the procession was over. Human rights or international criminal justice is not simply hocus-pocus, but it seems to be so in the case of Assange, who has enlightened the world population about the hidden criminal political laundering of the big, powerful states. This book explores the propensity towards evil in the nature of collective entities based on political and economic gains against the international community as a whole. It underlines that immoral criminal political laundering is the basic reason for money laundries throughout the globe.
