The focus will now be on whether Mr Assange can leave the Ecuadoran embassy in London

 

 

Sweden's director of public prosecutions has decided to drop the rape investigation into Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

 

Marianne Ny filed a request to the Stockholm District Court to revoke his arrest warrant, apparently ending a seven-year stand-off.

 

Mr Assange, 45, has lived in the Ecuadoran embassy in London since 2012, trying to avoid extradition.

He feared being extradited to the US if sent to Sweden.

 

He could face trial in the US over the leaking hundreds of thousands of secret US military and diplomatic documents.

 

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

'Focus on UK'

A brief statement ahead of a press conference by the prosecutor later on Friday said: "Director of Public Prosecution, Ms Marianne Ny, has today decided to discontinue the investigation regarding suspected rape (lesser degree) by Julian Assange."

 

Mr Assange has always denied the rape allegations against him, and was interviewed in the embassy in London six months ago in the presence of Swedish officials.

 

After the news was announced on Friday, Wikileaks 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".

 

The Metropolitan Police Service in London issued a statement saying that its actions had been based on a response to a "European Arrest Warrant for an extremely serious offence".

 

It went on: "Now that the situation has changed and the Swedish authorities have discontinued their investigation into that matter, Mr Assange remains wanted for a much less serious offence. The MPS will provide a level of resourcing which is proportionate to that offence."

 

The MPS said it would "not comment further on the operational plan".

 

Last month, Mr Assange's Swedish lawyer filed a new motion calling for his client's arrest warrant to be lifted.

 

Per Samuelsson cited a comment by new US Attorney General Jeff Sessions that the arrest of Mr Assange would be "a priority".

 

Mr Samuelsson told Agence France-Presse: "This implies that we can now demonstrate that the US has a will to take action... this is why we ask for the arrest warrant to be cancelled so that Julian Assange can fly to Ecuador and enjoy his political asylum."


"All will be well."

Not too long ago, there was somebody that had climbed the side of the building and was trying to get into the embassy. Dressed in all black, and very obviously up to something nefarious. Best part of the story: The guy got away.

   
Chances are, ^^that guy is in the CIA, and he'll be the one to blow Assange's head off in public, if he does leave the embassy.

Assange just gave a presser which he ended by saying that trying to punish him is an attack on all journalists everywhere which is wrong because he is not a journalist being persecuted for a revealing story he is computer hacker who is releasing documents he hasn't even read himself.

Assange is a can. This dude offered to turn himself in Obama pardoned Manning, and then Obama pardoned Manning and this can was like "oops."

The forum just can't handle level-headed fact-based analysis using the queen's English.  I should have just said that Vanatta double-diggled that foglet Ferguson in blueberry flavoured buttermilk and I'm sure Banham would have agreed.

Our president got played by a dude who can't even leave an embassy.

That's a sad point in American history.

You obviously don't know this forum very well. It's probably the most pro-tranny forum in existence that isn't explicitly an LGBT community.
