The Assange Matter

 

Assange granted asylum in Ecuador

 

Director of Public Prosecution Ms Marianne Ny will not comment on the matter as long as it is handled by British authorities.

The fact that Julian Assange has been granted asylum in Ecuador does not effect the Swedish criminal investigation. As the Ecuadorean embassy in London is situated on British soil, the case is still a matter for British authorities.

Concerning requests for interviews

The Director of Public Prosecution, Marianne Ny, cannot supply any information regarding the case at the moment.
