Sweeden drops Assange rape probe

Sweeden drops Assange rape probe


Prosecutors in Sweden have dropped an investigation into a rape allegation made against Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange in 2010.

Assange, who denies the accusation, has avoided extradition to Sweden for seven years after seeking refuge at the Ecuadorean embassy in London in 2012.

The 48-year-old Australian was evicted last month and sentenced to 50 weeks in jail for breaching his bail conditions.





He is currently being held at Belmarsh prison in London.
