Rape Charges on WikiLeaks Founder Reopen

The case with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is reopened, Swedish prosecutor Marianne Ny says in a press release according to politiken.dk.

In August, the Australian journalist was arrested in absentia, charged for raping two women during a stay in Stockholm.

Assange was cleared, though, on August 21 after the Swedish police had searched the case and stated that there was no reason to believe taht Julian Assange had commited rape.

“We have searched the case, and I think there is a reason to believe that the felonies havde taken place,” Marianne Ny says.

“There are reasons enough to further investigate the case,” she says.

Marianne Ny does not inform in the press release whether the reopening of the case is caused by new information, says politiken.dk.
