Julian Assange: An Appeal from International Lawyers
Fredrik S. Heffermehl – TRANSCEND Media Service, 2 Dec 2019

Britain should follow the proud example of Iceland. That small nation firmly defended its sovereignty against a U.S. attempt in 2011 to exercise undue jurisdiction, when it expelled a huge team of FBI detectives that had entered the country and had started to investigate WikiLeaks and Assange without permission of the Icelandic government. The treatment of Julian Assange is below the dignity of the great nation that gave the world the Magna Carta in 1215 and the Habeas Corpus. To defend its national sovereignty and obey its own laws, the present British government must set Assange free immediately.

Norway’s Parliament Must Change Its Routine for Selection of the Nobel Committee and Legislators Must Comply with the Law
Fredrik S. Heffermehl | Nobel Peace Prize Watch – TRANSCEND Media Service, 30 Oct 2017

23 Oct 2017 – The Storting must choose those best suited to promote Nobel’s intention. The prize has long been disconnected from the peace ideas Nobel wished to support; it has lacked direction, idea, and of will to challenge the belief in military power. A promising winner for 2017 is reason for hope that the prize will improve. The parliament will select a new Nobel Committee only in a month’s time–and we fear the worst.

Trump–Putin Could Rescue the World Taking the Advice of Alfred Nobel
Fredrik S. Heffermehl | Nobel Peace Prize Watch – TRANSCEND Media Service, 27 Feb 2017

This means that almost all statesmen and generals who have received Nobel honors from the Oslo committee have been — considering the actual intention of Alfred Nobel — illegitimate winners.

Moment of Truth for the Nobel Peace Prize
Fredrik S. Heffermehl and Tomas Magnusson, IPS – TRANSCEND Media Service, 20 Apr 2015

In recent years the recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize have not reflected the hope of the award’s founder – Alfred Nobel (1833-1896) – that the world be freed of weapons, warriors and war, or promoted the vision of preventing future war by what Nobel called “creating the brotherhood of nations”.

Fredrik S. Heffermehl – TRANSCEND Media Service, 12 Nov 2012

In my letter to Länsstyrelsen on Oct. 7, 2012, I quoted startling remarks from the Secretary of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, Geir Lundestad, that the Norwegian Committee is not willing to pay attention neither to the will of Alfred Nobel nor to the law and the March 21, 2012, decision of the Länsstyrelsen. Referring to the IPB request of Oct. 5 [2012] I hereby urge the Länsstyrelsen to urgently intervene with an injunctive to stop payment of the prize to the European Union.
