The controversial founder of Wikileaks website, Julian Assange, was arrested in London today by the police on behalf of Swedish police on attempted rape allegations. This is the time which bloggers who value openness must come out and support Julian Assange as the US will ultimately want him if at all he will be extradited to Sweden.
