There are “hidden agendas” in the rape claims made against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange by two women in Stockholm, his lawyer has said. Björn Hurtig, who is representing Assange in Sweden, said he has seen secret police documents that reveal Assange is innocent of rape claims, Daily Mail reported on Sunday.

Hurtig said the papers that are part of the official Swedish investigation show both women had “hidden agendas” and lied about being coerced into having sex with Assange.
