Sweden Drops Rape Charges Against Julian Assange

Share

The rape investigation into WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been dropped by Sweden’s director of public prosecutions. 

WikiLeaks have said that the arrest warrant that for Assange will be revoked, bringing an end to the seven year standoff.

The 45-year-old has been living in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since 2012. He denies the rape charge against him, and took refuge in the embassy to avoid extradition back to Sweden. Not long after the announcement was made, he posted this image to Twitter.

Assange is trying to avoid further extradition to the US. WikiLeaks released 500,000 military files, something which he could still face trial for.
