Stockholm (dpa) - The Swedish judicial authorities stop the rape investigation against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. The incident is now back so long that the evidence has weakened significantly, they say. Assange is currently in custody in the UK. He was the subject of a European arrest warrant for rape allegations in Sweden. He was afraid of being extradited first to Scandinavia and finally to the United States. This option is now excluded. A possible delivery to the US is not yet off the table.
