Submission + - Sweden defends Wiki sex case about-face (skunkpost.com) 1

crimeandpunishment writes: "Mistake? We didn't make a mistake." That's what Swedish prosecutors said Sunday as they defended their handling of a rape allegation against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. The Swedish Prosecution Authority said the prosecutor who issued the arrest warrant Friday did not make a mistake, even though a higher-ranked prosecutor withdrew the warrant the next day. A spokesperson for the Authority said "The prosecutor who took over the case yesterday had more information, and that is why she made a different assessment than the on-call prosecutor". Assange, who was in Sweden seeking legal protection for the site as it prepares to leak more Afghan war documents, told a Swedish tabloid newspaper "I don't know who's behind this but we have been warned that for example the Pentagon plans to use dirty tricks to spoil things for us".
