Decision by Sweden about Julian Assange is imminent

In Sweden, the prosecution will be confirming whether it would be re-opening the inquiry into accusations of sexual abuse allegedly carried out by the co-founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange.

Assange, who has denied all the charges, has so far avoided being extradited towards Sweden for the last seven years. He has been living at the Ecuador embassy in London since 2012.

However, last month Julian Assange was forced to leave the embassy and was handed a 50 week jail sentence for breaching his bail conditions.

The United States is also asking for Assange’s extradition from the UK after for his alleged role in the way sensitive military and diplomatic documents were leaked in 2010.
