Sweden To Pursue Rape Charges Against Assange

On Monday, Prosecutors in Sweden decided to re-open their investigation into claims Julian Assange raped a woman there in 2010.

He was first accused in 2010.

The case was disrupted by Assange's almost seven-year stay as a political asylum seeker in Ecuador's London embassy.

Eva-Marie Persson, a senior Swedish prosecutor, said she would pursue the case as she believes there is probable cause to try him.
