Sweden discontinued a 2010 alleged rape investigation against WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange, country’s prosecutors said Tuesday.
In a press release, Deputy Chief Prosecutor Eva-Marie Persson gave an update on the Swedish case, saying the investigation has now been dropped.
“I would like to emphasise that the injured party has submitted a credible and reliable version of events,” Persson said.
“Her statements have been coherent, extensive and detailed; however, my overall assessment is that the evidential situation has been weakened to such an extent that that there is no longer any reason to continue the investigation.”
The investigation was shelved
