The Assange Matter

 Investigation concerning Julian Assange discontinued in part

On 13 August 2015 Director of Public Prosecution Marianne Ny discontinued the investigation of Julian Assange with respect to suspected sexual molestation and unlawful coercion, as these acts are now subject to statute of limitation.

An incident of suspected rape, less serious crime, will expire on 17 August 2020. The preliminary investigation will continue with respect to this crime. The status of the evidence is unchanged, and the possibilities to continue the investigation by interviews with the suspect are not exhausted.


Concerning requests for interviews

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