Sweden prosecutor continues Assange investigation

World | 5 Feb 2016 4:44 pm

The Swedish Prosecution Authority says the call from the UN working group for Julian Assange to be released and compensated “has no formal impact on the ongoing investigation, according to Swedish law.''

Spokeswoman Karin Rosander said the prosecutor responsible for the case is traveling and has not yet been able to comment on the case.

Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadorean Embassy since 2012 to avoid arrest and extradition to Sweden, from where he fears he would be sent to the United States.—AP
