Norway investigates the disappearance of Wikileaks founder's partner

Norway investigates the disappearance of Wikileaks founder's partner

Oslo - Norwegian police announced on Sunday that it was investigating the disappearance of Internet security expert Ariane Camphis and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, who was last seen in a northern Norwegian town.

"We have opened an investigation," police spokesman Tommy Bech told AFP. "So far, they have no idea where he is.

"We will not predict what might have happened to him," he said.

WikiLeaks posted a tweet on Saturday about the "suspicious disappearance" of Camphis, which he has lost since August 20 when he left his hotel in the Norwegian town of Bodo.

He added that Camphis had booked a ticket for a trip on 22 August from Trondheim, south of Bodo.

"The journey between the two sites takes about 10 hours," he said, predicting he either disappeared in Bodo or Trondheim or on the train, sparking many of the conspiracy theories on Twitter.

Asang has been accompanying the Ecuadorian embassy in London since he took refuge in 2012 and was granted political asylum because of fears he would be extradited to the United States, which is trying to try him for military documents and secret diplomatic cables in 2010.
