Swedish prosecutors drop Julian Assange rape investigation

Swedish prosecutors drop Julian Assange rape investigation --Sweden’s director of public prosecution says she has decided to discontinue the investigation into WikiLeaks founder | 19 May 2017 | Swedish prosecutors have dropped their preliminary investigation into an allegation of rape against the WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, bringing an end to a seven-year legal standoff. The decision was taken after prosecutors concluded that "at this point, all possibilities to conduct the investigation are exhausted", Sweden’s director of public prosecutions, Marianne Ny, said on Friday. The WikiLeaks founder sought asylum in Ecuador’s embassy in London in 2012 after losing court battles to avoid extradition to Sweden over the claims, which he denies.
