Currently, the extradition of Julian Assange to the USA is being discussed in the media. Others are also uncovering uncomfortable truths, like, for example, the Scottish journalist Craig Murray, who is now portrayed here in our series KOLLATERAL. Craig John Murray is a Scottish journalist, historian, blogger and human rights activist. He was the British ambassador to Uzbekistan from 2002 to 2004.
Murray was forced out of the diplomatic service after exposing the use of torture.
Truth tellers end up in prison (Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, Craig Murray…).
Those who lie make careers in politics and business, and statements like “The truth in many cases leads to political death” are socially acceptable.
