Swedish Prosecutor Drops Rape Probe of WikiLeaks Founder Assange

Sweden's top prosecutor on Friday dropped an investigation into a rape claim against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange after nearly seven years, saying that's because there's no possibility of arresting him "in the foreseeable future".

Melinda Taylor, a member of Assange's legal team, called attention to the USA, telling NBC News that "as long as the national security prosecution continues there continues to be a risk to him".

Director of Public Prosecution Marianne Ny announced in a statement that she "has chose to discontinue the investigation".

Assange, 45, took refuge in Ecuador's embassy in London in 2012 to escape extradition to Sweden to answer questions about sex-crime allegations from two women.

He nonetheless called Sweden's decision to drop the rape investigation "an important victory for me and for the United Nations human rights system".

"From Sweden's point of view this is now over", Samuelson told the Reuters news agency.

"U.K. refuses to confirm or deny whether it has already received a USA extradition warrant for Julian Assange. Focus now moves to United Kingdom".

The silver-haired activist also posted a Twitter image of himself wearing a white T-shirt and smiling.

The London Metropolitan Police, however, made it clear in a statement that there was an outstanding arrest warrant for Assange.

"Westminster Magistrates' Court issued a warrant for the arrest of Julian Assange following him failing to surrender to the court on the 29 June 2012".

The British police said before the announcement that Mr. Assange is still wanted in Britain for jumping bail.

The maximum penalty for breaching bail is up to a year in prison or a fine.

But it adds that Assange is now wanted for a "much less serious offense" than the original sex crimes claims, and police "will provide a level of resourcing which is proportionate to that offense".

It remains unclear whether there is a standing US extradition order for Assange. In 2015, British police ended a multimillion pound policing operation that included round-the-clock guarding of Ecuador compound.

Assange has said that all the sex was consensual.

Ny told reporters that prosecutors had been unable to make a full assessment of the case and were not making a finding on whether Assange was guilty or innocent of the allegations. She said the WikiLeaks founder had "tried to dodge all attempts at arrest" by British and Swedish authorities.

She said the case could be reopened if Assange returns to Sweden before the statute of limitations expires in 2020. He said Assange had convinced Swedish prosecutors during a November meeting past year that he was not guilty of any sex offenses. "And he's a free man", Samuelson said. WikiLeaks also had a provocative role in the 2016 US presidential campaign when it published emails written by Hillary Clinton campaign officials. She was freed Wednesday, having had her sentence commuted by outgoing President Barack Obama before he left office.
