Sweden reopens rape case against Julian Assange Sweden reopens rape case against Julian AssangeFrom Sweden this morning, prosecutors their say they will which princess to today’s decision. I have today taken the decision to reopen the preliminary investigation bars in the UK for 50 months for breaching bail conditions, as he was arrested, taken out of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London last month after spending almost 7 years, they’re claiming Asylum watching these latest developments. What is the thinking behind Sweden’s decision to reopen this close case? Thomas prosecutor changed ending, I believe they stand a chance of getting a massage extradited from Britain to face this accusation. Remember this case dates back nearly a decade. Assange was accused of rape in Sweden in 2010, dropped the whole investigation, not for lack of evidence, but because the songs was holed up in that Ecuadorian Embassy. Here in London he wasn’t budging and there was no chance at that time that he could be extradited to. Sweden and now you’ll recall he was expelled from that Embassy. A police pull them out a month ago. He asparagus days at belmarsh prison here in London a serving time for skipping bail. That was sweet. As prosecutors said today, she was applying for a European arrest warrant to get us into face. This investigation is not formally charged just yet, but the swedes want to be able to interview him while he’s locked up here, so they can proceed with that investigation. Heather now Sweden as well, where does things go on the extradition front from here? First, before any extradition is so I’m just going to keep serving his current 50-week sentence for skipping bail out here and then, whether he sent to Sweden or the US and those charges in the United States for allegedly trying to get into a pentagon computers. Maybe he won’t be extradited at all that’s up to the British government here and regarding that Swedish rape case, it’s on his always maintained that the sex was consensual and his supporters at wikileak. If I put out a statement on social media today, the editor-in-chief of WikiLeaks, it’s saying that the Swedish investigation has been before and it’s reopening will just give Julian a chance to clear his name in the words of the editor-in-chief that I should say, the statute of Limitation for the rape investigation runs out next year Heather, and there still is a that that will expire before Sun can be extradited to Sweden at all. These things take a long time, as We Know, Swedish prosecutors say they are reopening a rape case against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and will seek his extradition after he has served his 50-week prison term in Britain for jumping bail.
