Re: This confused me

Judge Baraitser also dismissed Assange’s legal arguments that publishing stolen US government documents on WikiLeaks was not a crime in the UK, ruling that had he been charged in the UK, he would have been guilty of offences under the Official Secrets Acts 1911-1989. Had his conduct not been a crime in the UK, that would have been a powerful blow against extradition.

Can anyone be charged with sharing secrets one might not know are shared secrets if one has not signed the Official Secrets Act 1911-1989? One presumes Julian Assange has never ever signed such an agreement.

Or even charged with sharing stolen secrets one might know are stolen shared secrets if one has not signed any Official Secrets Act?

Is this designed to confuse and terrorise?
