Blog.com International shut down the famous Swedish free political investigating website and blog, http://www.undermattan.com without any explanation or prior notice.
The site went dark shortly after it revealed the Swedish army’s involvement and their possible connection to the Swedish media in the Julian Assange case.
The censorship came suddenly as the subject at the same time was up for discussion on the popular Flashback forum in Sweden. Independent sources say the censoring of the website was done by request of Swedish authorities who acted on the behalf of the Swedish government.
Similar behavior by Swedish authorities has been observed and documented in both 2011 and 2012.
The takedown was done in the manner a Middle Eastern dictatorship would do it.
- Without prior notice – In the middle of the night, and afterwards refusing to answer any questions or revealing why they did it. So far there have been no arrests.
http://www.undermattan.com hosts a large amount of crucial public information regarding the Swedish government’s suspicious handling of the Julian Assange case.
The site had among other things published the police interviews with Anna Ardin, Sofia Wilén and Julian Assange and hosted lots of unique material regarding the case which could not be found anywhere else on the web.
Before the takedown, the website also revealed some suspicious and possible criminal activity by Swedish intelligence and the Swedish foreign department where Carl Bildt, the Swedish minister for foreign affairs, is in charge.
