Submission + - Sweden drops investigation of Julian Assange (

rmdingler writes:

Sweden is dropping its investigation into WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on rape allegations, according to a prosecution statement released Friday. Assange, who has always denied wrongdoing, has been holed up at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since 2012, in an effort to avoid a Swedish arrest warrant. Despite Friday's announcement, he's unlikely to walk out of the embassy imminently.

There is no apparent change in the risk of being detained in the west, particularly in the US, but it's definitely a win for Assange.
