Sweden reopens WikiLeaks founder rape investigation

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) – A top Swedish prosecutor said on Wednesday she was reopening an investigation into rape allegations against Julian Assange, the founder of whistleblowing website WikiLeaks…

Director of Public Prosecutions Marianne Ny said she decided to reopen the investigation after further review of the case.

"There is reason to believe that a crime has been committed. Considering information available at present, my judgment is that the classification of the crime is rape," Ny said in a statement on the Prosecution Authority’s website.

"More investigations are necessary before a final decision can be made," she added. She also said a preliminary investigation into charges of molestation would be expanded to sexual coercion and sexual molestation

Curiouser and curiouser. In any case, we thought that the news of the rape case being dropped was suspicious.

After all, the media has told us for years that women never lie about rape.

    I’ve seen the pictures of this joker. Is it certain that the rape charge was brought by a FEMALE??

    I hereby officially declare Julian Assange GUILTY of rape. I see no reason not to hold him to his own communistic standard of having to prove one’s own innocence, especially since this is a sex crime, where the seriousness of the charge outweighs any evidence or lack thereof.

    What was the little boy’s name?

  5. NoNeoCommies says:

    It’s not the nature of the evidence, it’s the seriousness of the charge!
