BREAKING Sweden Drops Julian Assange Rape Investigation

Prosecutors in Sweden say that they would drop their investigation into Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder who is holed up in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London after the authorities in Stockholm opened a preliminary rape inquiry against him.

“Chief Prosecutor Marianne Ny has today decided to shut down the preliminary investigation regarding suspected rape involving Julian Assange,” the prosecutors’ office said in a statement.

However, the Metropolitan Police Service in London said after the news was announced that it remained obliged to arrest Assange should he leave the Ecuadoran embassy on a lesser charge of failing to surrender to a court.

Wikileaks has just tweeted that the "focus now moves to the UK", saying the UK had "refused to confirm or deny whether it has already received a US extradition warrant for Julian Assange".

  1. The UK had the balls to brexit. Will they have the balls to come out from under the thumb of the US?

  2. Wonderful news! Now I'm sure the U.S. will now rush to charge Assange with something -- anything -- before England repeals its arrest warrant.
