At his morning press briefing, the president made the comment as referring to the lies and misrepresentations by the opposing press and social networks about his Government and civil society.

López Obrador urged the young people to investigate why Assange, who does not deserve to be in jail and, on the contrary, should become a cause célèbre for all global journalists and the media, is still imprisoned.

The Mexican leader also explained the powerful have Assange behind bars because he revealed scandals on bad politics management in the United States and other countries including Mexico, where he denounced some officials of the National Electoral Institute (INE) in the 2012 elections when Felipe Calderón rigged the presidency.

Assange revealed some documents and evidence from the U.S. embassy talking about the 2012 elections, fraud committed between former President Vicente Fox (2006-2012), and how INE officials visited the U.S. embassy before the elections in order to inform them how they were going to handle the election results.

For all these reasons, Assange is victim of repression and not of fabricated crimes he is indicted for. He made revelations and denunciations in favor of freedom of information and speech, and what he did is quite sobering.
