Wikileaks will file a criminal complaint against President Barack Obama in Sweden – just one day ahead of his official visit to Stockholm.
The complaint "concerns the likely unlawful seizure of WikiLeaks property on 27 September 2010,” according to a Wikileaks press release.
Wikileaks founder Julian Assange alleges three encrypted computers, property of Wikileaks, disappeared en route from Stockholm to Berlin on that date. The computers are said to have contained evidence of war crimes committed by U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan.

"Swedish authorities have the opportunity to demonstrate that no one, including state officials, is above the law," says Assange, who is wanted for questioning in Sweden for alleged rape.
A British court has decided that Assange, who left Sweden for Britain when the allegations emerged, should be transferred to Sweden. However, the Australian national refuses extradition and has been holed up in Ecuador’s London embassy for more than a year.
