The Swedish prosecution authority dropped the charges against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange

On Friday, may 19, the Swedish prosecution authority dropped the charges against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and canceled the order for his arrest, according to the European media, in particular the website of the newspaper The Guardian.

The decision to discontinue the investigation took the country’s chief Prosecutor Marianne Nude, said the TV channel «Rain».

Note that this decision was taken a day after the Informant of WikiLeaks, Chelsea manning (born Bradley manning), was released after spending seven years behind bars.

Despite the decision of the Prosecutor’s office of Sweden, the representative of British law enforcement authorities have stated that Assange will be arrested if you go outside the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where at the present time.

Julian Assange is in the Embassy of Ecuador in London since 2012. He was granted political asylum after beginning of the investigation, a rape case in Sweden in 2010.

The formal basis for issuing an international warrant for the arrest of Assange then began the testimony of two citizens of Sweden (his female fans and activists of the feminist movement), who accused him of rape and forced sex in August 2010. These women claimed that Assange showed aggression and acted contrary to the desires of the sexual partner.
