A Swedish prosecutor still aims to question Wikileaks founder Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in London over a rape allegation in Sweden, despite a UN report condemning Sweden for his "arbitrary detention".
"Concerning the report that was issued last week, I would like to state that it does not change my earlier assessments in the investigation," Marianne Ny said in a statement, adding she was "currently working on a renewed request to interview Julian Assange at Ecuador's embassy in London."
