Julian Assange rape investigation is about to reopen in Sweden. On April 2019, a group of women pressured Sajid Javid to have him deported to Sweden. If they failed to do so, then they would validate the rape culture.
Many victims of sexual violence have endorsed the home secretary to concentrate on rape allegations raised on a 47-year-old Australian Julian Assange in Sweden. On Monday, Sweden reopened the case against Julian Assange. He is the founder of WikiLeaks.
In 2017, the court him charged for sexual assault. The case was requested to be reopened by the alleged victims. However, this is going to delay the efforts of the U.S. to bring him to the court for a trial of releasing confidential documents.
On May 13, 2019, two women accused him of rape and sexual harassment that he committed in 2010. As per the law, he will be sent to Sweden for the rape case for 10 years.
As per the sources, Eva-Marie Persson who is a Deputy Chief Prosecutor will start a preliminary investigation on this case soon. It closed in 2017 because Assange was hiding in the Ecuadorean embassy in London. However, the officials arrested him in Britain after 7 years. Apart from that, America has also raised charges on him for releasing secret documents related to wars, foreign leaders and security matters.
Where is Julian Assange now?
Currently, Julian Assange is behind the bars. He is serving as a prisoner for more than 50 weeks. However, it has raised various questions, whether he will be sent to Sweden or to the U.S.
