But former Wales and Northern Ireland Secretary Peter Hain said Sunday that the attackers don’t seem to have done their homework.

“If the reason … is revenge for Assange’s treatment, it’s weird to attack me,” Hain said in comments carried by the BBC. “They have not done their research because I have supported Assange and opposed his extradition.”

The nearly two-year-long effort to extradite him from the U.K. has drawn worldwide attention, in part because Assange and his supporters have suggested that the Swedish sex case is a part of a Washington-orchestrated plot to drag him to the United States, where officials are weighing whether to charge him over the disclosures.
