After Assange was taken out of the Ecuadorian Embassy and was taken into custody, the file was opened again.
The investigation into the allegations that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange sexually assaulted two women in Sweden has been reopened.
Assange was unable to leave the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he had sought refuge five years ago with the concern of being extradited to Sweden, where he was being sought because of the charges.
Upon this development in 2017, the Swedish Court had stated that they had decided to close the investigation.
However, as Assange has been removed from the Embassy of Ecuador and taken into custody, the file has been opened again. Swedish Public Prosecutor’s Office Director Eva-Marie Persson announced today the re-opening of the investigation into allegations of sexual assault by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
