Journalist, accused of rape, remains in Ecuador embassy since 2012
"The country's director of public prosecutions, Marianne Ny, said the preliminary rape and sexual assault probe has been discontinued because of logistical," the agency informed.
The investigation started in summer 2010 in Sweden at the request of two women regarding sexual abuse by Assange during his visit to Stockholm. Assange was detained in London on December 9 the same year upon demand of Swedish law enforcement bodies, insisting on his extradition, however he was released on bail in several days.
Julian Assange applied for political asylum to Ecuador embassy and remains there since 2012.
