    A renewed request will shortly be submitted to Ecuador concerning permission to interview Julian Assange at Ecuador's embassy in London. Sweden has signed a general agreement on mutual legal assistance with Ecuador. Therefore, the prosecutor will shortly submit a request to interview Julian Assange at Ecuador's embassy in London. The document will be sent from the Ministry of Justice to Ecuador through diplomatic channels. In June, Great Britain granted permission for the investigation to continue in London, and the relevant British authorities will be informed of any developments in the case. When all necessary permits and arrangements are ready, the interview will be performed by the supporting prosecutor to the case, Chief Prosecutor Ingrid Isgren, together with a police investigator. At the moment, it is not possible to estimate when the interview will take place. Press service+46 10 562 50 20
