Assange files charges against US spying on Wikileaks illegally in Germany

BERLIN: WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has filed charges in Germany claiming a US Marines intelligence officer spied on him during a Berlin computer conference

Assange said the spying at the Chaos Computer Club’s annual congress was made public when the ex-Marine gave witness testimony in June this year in the military trial of WikiLeaks source Bradley Manning

The then Stuttgart-based Marine, identified in reports only as Matthew H, allegedly targeted Assange, who was speaking about the WikiLeaks platform, its German co-founder Daniel Domscheid-Berg and the French internet activist Jeremie Zimmermann. Assange argued that such intelligence activity is illegal in Germany.
