Swedish prosecutors resumed investigation against Assange

He is suspected of rape and sexual harassment.

Swedish prosecutors resumed a preliminary investigation against the founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, who is suspected of rape and sexual harassment. Previously, the case was closed due to the inability to call Assange to court.

WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Kristinn Hrafnsson said the Swedish investigation “would give Julian a chance to clear his name.”

Extraditions Assange also intend to seek the United States, where he is accused of publishing secret reports from the Pentagon, the State Department and other government agencies. The final decision on this matter should take a British court.

Earlier, a London court sentenced Assange to 50 weeks in prison, finding him guilty of violating the conditions of release on bail seven years ago.
