Swedish Police Drop Rape Charges Against Julian Assange

Chief prosecutor Eva Finné has come to the decision that Julian Assange is not suspected of rape. Considering that, Assange is no longer arrested in his absence, the Swedish prosecutors writes on their website.

“There are powerful organizations behind this, and they strive to damage WikiLeaks.”

The Swedish police have hunted the Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange, this Saturday, after he was charged on suspicion of raping two women in Sweden.

“There are powerful organizations behind this, and they strive to damage WikiLeaks,” says Wikileaks spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson, according to AFP.

The Swedish newspaper Expressen reported Saturday morning that Assange was charged with two rapes.

Chief prosecutor Eva Finné will not make other comments.

He Can’t Take No For An Answer

The 30-year-old woman who spoke to Aftonbladet before it was known that charges was dropped, says she was sexually assaulted by Assange.

She became familiar with the other woman during Assanges stay in Sweden.

Together they contacted the police with their allegations.

“I believed at once, since I’ve experienced something similar,” she says to Aftonbladet.

The women have told the police that it started as a voluntary sexual intercourse. But turned into an abuse by Assange.

“The other woman want to file charges of rape. We stand fully and completely by our charges,” she says.

The conspiracy theories that now are buzzing abound the internet, do not frighten the 30-year-old:

“The accusations against Assange is not staged by either the Pentagon or anyone else. The responsibility for what has happened to me and the other woman lies with a man who has a crooked view of women, and who have trouble taking no for an answer,” she says.
