Breaking! Sweden Drops Rape Investigation of Wikileaks’ Julian Assange

Time

(STOCKHOLM) — Sweden’s top prosecutor said Friday she is dropping an investigation into a rape claim against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange after almost seven years.

The Swedish Prosecution Authority said in a statement Friday that Marianne Ny “has decided to discontinue the investigation.”

Assange took refuge in Ecuador’s embassy in London in 2012 to escape extradition to Sweden to answer questions about sex-crime allegations from two women. He has been there ever since, fearing that if he is arrested he might ultimately be extradited to the United States. Last month, President Donald Trump said he would support any decision by the Justice Department to charge Assange.

WikiLeaks tweeted after the Swedish announcement: “UK refuses to confirm or deny whether it has already received a US extradition warrant for Julian Assange. Focus now moves to UK,”

Friday’s announcement means Assange is no longer under any investigation in Sweden. But the Metropolitan Police said Assange is still subject to arrest for the “much less serious offense” of jumping bail in 2012.

The 45-year-old Australian computer hacker was wanted in Sweden for questioning over a rape allegation stemming from a 2010 visit.

“This is a total victory for Julian Assange. He is now free to leave the embassy when he wants. We have won the Assange case. He is of course happy and relieved. He has been critical that it has lasted that long,” Per E Samuelsson, his lawyer in Sweden, told Swedish Radio. Samuelsson was not immediately available for comments.

Assange still can’t leave the Ecuadorian embassy without being arrested:

Related: Iceland believed the FBI wanted to frame Assange.

Assange supporters fear that he will be extradited to the U.S. and put on trial.

Pamela Anderson Visits WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange Again

Haha. I love this story.

Pamela Anderson is rebelling in at least two ways by visiting Julian Assange.

She’s ignoring the leftard feminists who hate his guts.

She’s also ignoring his role in bringing down Hillary Clinton and Hillary’s idiotic notion that Hillary was entitled to be America’s first woman president.

Could romance be in the air?

I hope President Trump is able to free Assange (a pardon and asylum?) in thanks for his work in helping overthrow the establishment.

People

Pamela Anderson made another visit to the controversial mastermind behind WikiLeaks with goodies in hand.

The 49-year-old model and actress was photographed making a trip to see Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks editor-in-chief, at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London on Sunday. Just like her visit nearly a month ago, Anderson had plenty of treats in tow.

Dressed in a yellow knit dress that hit below the knee and a camel coat slung over her shoulders, Anderson carried a tray full of snacks.

During her previous visit, Anderson called herself a supporter of Assange and joked of providing him with the meal. “He said I tortured him with bringing him vegan food,” the longtime vegan said.

“Pamela has visited Julian a number of times,” Anderson’s publicist told PEOPLE in a statement. “She likes to make him smile — she is a dear supporter of his. She is concerned for his well being, and believes he’s committed no crime and has been treated unkind, and unfairly.”

Assange has claimed political asylum at the embassy since 2012 in order to avoid facing extradition to Sweden over a rape allegation he has long refuted. According to the Associated Press, Assange fears being sent to the U.S. to face espionage charges in relation to WikiLeaks.

Previously, the controversial Australian journalist couldn’t even step out onto the building’s balcony. Until October of 2015, he was even under round-the-clock police guard.

WikiLeaks has been at the center of much of the controversy surrounding this year’s presidential election in the United States. The website has published thousands of hacked emails from major political figures, including Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and members of the Democratic National Convention.

Matt Drudge must have a soft spot in his heart for dogs, as this story was up on his site all day, complete with a picture of Dayko, the hero canine who rescued seven people from earthquake rubble in Ecuador.

The Telegraph

A four-year-old white Labrador called Dayko has been hailed as a hero after rescuing seven people from the aftermath of the Ecuador earthquake – before dying from exhaustion.

Dayko, a rescue dog for the Ibara fire service, died last Friday, having spent the previous days searching for survivors in the rubble left by the 7.8-magnitude earthquake which hit Ecuador last week.

According to a post on Ibara fire service’s Facebook page the cause of death was “massive coronary myocardial infarction and acute respiratory failure.” He had been working as a rescue dog for three and a half years.

Dayko is making new friends, but he won’t forget his old friends. He’ll be waiting at the Rainbow Bridge.

arthur the dog in sweden ready to race1

The white clans of the far northern reaches of modern Europe domesticated the dog some 15,000 years ago or more.

Thus, it’s only fitting that Arthur, a homeless canine rescued from Ecuador, has been brought to Sweden, where he is now Sweden’s most famous dog.

You can read my earlier post on Arthur by clicking here.

The Local Sweden

Sweden’s most famous stray dog, Arthur, made his return to the racing scene on Sunday, much to the delight of spectators who had followed his epic journey from the streets of Ecuador to family life in northern Sweden over the past year.

Arthur the stray dog, whose rescue from the streets of Ecuador by a team of Swedish athletes made global headlines last year, now lives with Mikael Lindnord and his family in the northern town of Örnsköldsvik.

The dog first befriended the 38-year-old and his extreme sports team members in November after Lindnord gave him a canned meatball in the rainforest as the four-person team took part in the Adventure Racing World Championship.

Earlier this month, the team updated Arthur’s fans on Facebook after a trip to visit the recovering dog at a quarantine facility in their native Sweden.

Here’s three more pictures of Arthur. The first two were taken in Sweden. The last one shows him marching along with the team last fall in Ecuador.
