Sweden's judicial authorities have announced that investigations against Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, have been filed for rape charges, and Eva Marie Pearson, deputy director of the Swedish Criminal Prosecution Service, justified the panel's decision long after the incident, weakening the evidence.



Swedish judicial authorities have announced that investigations against Julian Assang, the Wikileaks founder, have been filed for rape charges, and Eva Marie Persson, deputy director of the Swedish Criminal Prosecution Service, justified the panel's decision over the incident, weakening the evidence.

Pearson said on Tuesday in Stockholm that it is possible to appeal the decision of the prosecution in this regard.

It is noteworthy that Assange is currently held in British prisons, where he was issued a European arrest warrant on charges of rape in Sweden.

Assange feared that he would first be extradited to Sweden and then to the United States, which is now unlikely after investigations against him have been filed in Sweden. It is due to begin on 25 February 2020.

Assange was accused in Sweden of raping a woman in August 2010, which the WikiLeaks founder has always denied, and other charges have arisen against Assange.

The Swedish prosecutor had already filed his investigation against Assange, which was in 2017, after the authorities failed to investigate the charges adequately.However, the prosecutor resumed his preliminary investigation again in May 2019 and filed a request for Assange's arrest, which the court rejected. Concerned, the Swedish city of Uppsala, prosecutors decided to appeal the decision to reject the arrest warrant for Assange.
