  • Sweden drops case, but WikiLeaks' Assange not in the clear

"Detained for 7 years without charge by while my children grew up and my name was slandered", he said on Twitter. Juan Branco told The Associated Press in Paris that he wants Macron to help Assange leave the Ecuadorean Embassy in London. A U.S. Department of Justice spokesman on Friday declined to comment on the case.

"This implies that we can now demonstrate that the USA has a will to take action. this is why we ask for the arrest warrant to be cancelled so that Julian Assange can fly to Ecuador and enjoy his political asylum", lawyer Per Samuelsson told AFP at the time. CIA Director Mike Pompeo has branded WikiLeaks a "hostile intelligence service", and Attorney General Jeff Sessions said last month that Assange's arrest is a priority.

American authorities have prepared charges to seek Arrange's arrest, CNN reported, citing US officials familiar with the matter. He has been in asylum in the U.K.'s Ecuadorian embassy since 2012.

The Ecuadorian government is to step up efforts to allow Mr Assange to continue his asylum in its country after Sweden's Director of Public Prosecutions Marianne Ny said she had chose to "discontinue" her investigation.

No. The investigation began after two women accused Assange of sexual offenses during a 2010 visit to Stockholm - allegations he denies.

United Kingdom has refused to confirm or deny if it has received an extradition warrant for Assange from the US.

Recent public declarations such as this constitute an "obvious risk" for Mr Assange, said the letter. Sweden's top prosecutor says she is dropping an investigation into a rape claim against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange after nearly seven years. A.

Ny told reporters that the WikiLeaks founder had "tried to dodge all attempts at arrest" by British and Swedish authorities.

Although Sweden has withdrawn its request for a European arrest warrant, The Guardian reports that Ny maintained the probe could be reopened if he returns to Sweden before 2020, a date set by statute of limitations.

Samuelson, the lawyer in Sweden, told Swedish Radio he had been in touch with Assange via text message and the Australian had written, "Serious, Oh My God". Sweden's top prosecutor says she is dropping an investigation into a rape claim against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange after.

Assange's lawyers hailed the decision as a victory, but the WikiLeaks founder may still face future arrest and charges if he leaves the Ecuadorean embassy in London, where he has lived since 2012. British police said before the announcement that Assange is still wanted in Britain for jumping bail. "The MPS will provide a level of resourcing which is proportionate to that offence", it continues.

The Metropolitan Police stopped its round the clock presence outside the Embassy in October 2015 amid controversy over the escalating cost of the exercise - believed to be more than £12 million. WikiLeaks also had a provocative role in the 2016 USA presidential campaign when it published emails written by Hillary Clinton's campaign officials.

Sweden's decision to drop the rape investigation against Assange comes against the backdrop of the release from prison of WikiLeaks' possibly most important whistleblower, Chelsea Manning, who leaked over 700,000 secret United States government documents back in 2010.
