Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I am not sure that you had an argument if you could prove that E. knew the site also sold illegal material. I doubt that anyone can.

And please note: I am not arguing that Edathy can't be guilty. I am arguing that there is no evidence for a search warrant or for making the case public. The behaviour of prosecution and judge is outrageous, and I don't want a judiciary like that.

or for making the case public

It wasn't the prosecutor or the judge who made it public, in fact the former was shocked that basically all details came out.

Then it was the police. The press wasn't present by chance when the search took place. There was a photo of the inside of Edathy's flat published. This isn't an investigation where one or two unfortunate things happened. It is a series of outrageous things violating the rights of the suspect.

That the police would publish it should come as no surprise. They're serial offenders when it comes to strengthening a weak case by whipping up a press lynch mob.

And something really ought to be done about that. Something involving somebody getting fired every time they have one of these "unfortunate leaks."
