    Not according to the prosecutor. To this day he claims Assange committed the rape and would be prosecuted should he be apprehended before the statute of limitations expire.


    I don't care one way or the other. I'm just keeping it factual on this one.


    Dropping the investigation and vacating the arrest warrent may have been a ruse. If it was, it's not working.

    Assange is stuck. The Brits want him. The Swedes will revive their case against him and he has problems in the US. Unless something dramatic happens, he’s going nowhere.

    Probably , but I think they were trumped up. The woman kept hanging with him in public AFTER the "rape" by my understanding

    Yeah, but we all know that the Wests assertions of freedom and equality are bull$#@! illusions.

    Prosecutors aren't above trumping up or embellishing charges.
