The defense of Julian Assange, presented yesterday to the Swedish Supreme Court an action for annulment of the arrest warrant for Wikileaks founder asylee in the Embassy of Ecuador in London, for an alleged sexual assault.
An appeals court in Stockholm in November rejected a first request for annulment, referring to “significant” risk that Assange escape if the order disappears.
The Swedish justice seeks to question Assange, which two women accused him of crimes of rape and sexual harassment, allegedly committed in 2010 in the Stockholm region.
“We ask the Court to provide us with SMS exchanged between the two complainants. The prosecution has those documents,” said Per Samuelsson, considering that these elements would prove that Assange is innocent.
Australian defense also questioned the passivity of the prosecution in the case of four alleged sex crimes. “The prosecution has not literally done nothing since autumn 2010. Not only violates the Swedish law, but also European” he said.
