London – Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore said he has posted $20,000 to help jailed Wikileaks founder Julian Assange make bail in Sweden.
“Yesterday, in the Westminster Magistrates Court in London, the lawyers for WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange presented to the judge a document from me stating that I have put up $20,000 of my own money to help bail Mr. Assange out of jail,” Moore said in a statement posted online.
Filmmakers Ken Loach and John Pilger and writer Jemima Kahn joined Moore in the contributing to Assange’s bail fund, Moore said.
Moore also offered “the assistance of my website, my servers, my domain names and anything else I can do to keep WikiLeaks alive and thriving.”
Assange was scheduled to appear in a London court Tuesday seeking to fight his extradition to Sweden in a sex-crimes investigation and trying to secure bail after being held for a week in a British prison cell.
Moore addressed the rape charges filed against Assange.
“For those of you who think it’s wrong to support Julian Assange because of the sexual assault allegations he’s being held for, all I ask is that you not be naive about how the government works when it decides to go after its prey. Please — never, ever believe the ‘official story,'” Moore said in the statement.
