Reading Time: < 1 minute

The alleged rape investigation involving WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who is currently in prison in Britain, has been discontinued, a Swedish prosecutor has said.

“I want to inform about my decision to discontinue the preliminary investigation,” deputy chief prosecutor Eva-Marie Persson told a news conference.

Tuesday’s decision follows a ruling in June by a Swedish court that Assange – who denies the accusation – should not be detained.
