Sweden lifts arrest warrant against Julian Assange and ends investigation

Written by  The Local

UPDATE: Swedish prosecutors have decided to end the rape investigation into Julian Assange and lift the Europe-wide arrest warrant against him, but UK police say they will still arrest him.

In a statement on its website, the Swedish prosecution authority said that the “Director of Public Prosecution, Ms Marianne Ny, has today decided to discontinue the investigation regarding suspected rape (lesser degree) by Julian Assange”.

“With the consideration that all options of moving the investigation forward are now exhausted it appears that – in light of the views expressed by the Supreme Court (Högsta domstolen) on the proportionality of remanding someone in absentia – it is no longer proportional to maintain the decision to remand Julian Assange in his absence and maintain the European arrest warrant,” Ny wrote in her notification to Stockholm District Court.

“I have therefore today lifted the decision to remand Julian Assange in his absence,” she added.

Leave him alone - his ability to embarrass governments should be cherished. There are way too many deep hidden no-no's - that need to see the light of day.

Does the UK have a hidden warrent for Assange´s extradition to the US, that will be applied as soon as he steps out of the Equadorian Embassy?
