Julian Assange hails "victory" as Sweden drops rape probe, still facing arrest

NY [U.S.A.], May 19: Sweden is set to drop investigation into WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on rape allegations, CNN quoted a prosecution statement released on Friday.

Updated Sweden's director of public prosecutions has today suspended an investigation into Julian Assange regarding rape allegations. He took refuge there after a failed bid to avoid extradition to Sweden.

And it appears that the Trump administration has renewed interest in pursuing Assange.

The 45-year-old, who is originally from Australia, told his supporters that the road is far from over - and "the proper war is just commencing".

That's unclear. Assange suspects there is a secret US indictment against him for WikiLeaks' publication of leaked classified American documents, which has infuriated USA officials.

The Ecuadorean embassy, where Assange has resided since losing his appeal against extradition to Sweden in 2012, is surrounded by British police officers 24 hours a day.

Assange has said the United Kingdom is refusing to confirm or deny whether America has made an extradition request - and he insisted he is happy to engage with the US Justice Department.

Despite the decision to halt the investigation, London's Metropolitan Police have released a "statement':http://news.met.police.uk/news/statement-on-julian-assange-242877 saying that Assange will still be arrested if he leaves the embassy".

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange today attacked the Swedish authorities for detaining him for seven years without charge and said he will not "forgive" those who "slandered" him.

"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".

British police kept up round-the-clock guard outside the embassy until December 2015, when the operation was scaled back, in part because of the cost, which had exceeded 11 million pounds (over $17.5 million at the time).

Both U.S. and British officials have declined to comment on whether there is a warrant for Assange's arrest.

Assange, 45, is wanted in the USA over the leaking of military and diplomatic documents.

USA prosecutors have been drafting a memo that looks at charges against Assange and WikiLeaks members that possibly include conspiracy, theft of government property and violations of the Espionage Act, according to The Washington Post. She told police she had wanted to end the encounter "but that it was too late to stop Assange as she had gone along with it so far".

"The U.S. Department of Justice [DOJ] has been running an unprecedented and wide-ranging investigation into WikiLeaks for its publishing and sourcing work since 2010", the statement continued.

He said British authorities had also refused to confirm or deny if the USA had issued a warrant for his extradition from the UK.

After the news was announced on Friday, Wikileaks tweeted that the "focus now moves to the UK", but Assange's fate still seems unclear. The South American country has granted him asylum, but it is not clear how Assange would travel there without the permission of British authorities.

No. The investigation began after two women accused Assange of sexual offenses during a 2010 visit to Stockholm.

Assange meanwhile guest-starred as himself in an episode of "The Simpsons", recording his lines over the phone from the Ecuadoran embassy.
