the Case of Assange: It can be done if Sweden opens preliminary investigation
Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has been suspected of rape in Sweden, since August 2010, while the previous suspicions of crimes on three cases of sexual molestation and one case of unlawful coercion claim. This could be for that he kept himself away in Ecuador's Londonambassad where he took refuge, sought and got asylum, in the summer of 2012.
But when Ecuador lifted asylen last month, he was arrested immediately on 11 april and was sentenced on 1 may to 50 weeks ' imprisonment for having violated borgensvillkoren. At least half of the time predicted he will sit.
the Swedish judicial system must take into account, that the most tidspressande scenario would give the prosecutors about four months to complete the investigation with the questioning of Assangeförhör before the offence become statute-barred on 20 August 2020.Demonstrators outside the court in London earlier in may.
