Swedish Prosecutors Reopen Julian Assange Rape Case Investigation: ITV News

|

Swedish prosecutors are reopening an investigation into a rape allegation against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, a month after he was removed from the Ecuadorian embassy in London. Eva-Marie Persson, Sweden’s deputy director of public prosecutions announced the decision at a news conference in Stockholm on Monday morning. Ms Persson said "there is still a probable cause to suspect that Assange committed a rape" and "a new questioning of Assange is required." She added the circumstances had changes following Assange's arrest last month when he was dragged out of the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he had lived for almost seven years.
