“I do not consider there to be any reason to suspect that he has committed rape,” chief prosecutor Eva Finné said in a statement explaining her decision
“She (Eva Finné) has adjudged that he is not suspected of rape. There is thus no reason to retain a warrant for his arrest,” Karin Rosander at the Prosecution Authority confirmed.
A source close to the case told the newspaper that two women in their twenties went to the police in Stockholm on Friday to speak about their recent encounters with Assange.
The Prosecution Authority released a statement on Saturday morning in which it revealed that the warrant was based on “one report of rape and one report of molestation. A warrant has been issued for the person’s arrest since there is a risk that he could hamper the investigation.”
