    The Guardian is reporting that the warrant has been cancelled.

    So, was he set up by the CIA, or is he CIA and was set up in order to increase his credibility ?........................

    (leaving aside the possibility of inappropriate behaviour with the women in question?)

    Nothing so deft ...

    Panic by an official in a small neutral state that is having a lot of problems with internet issues and the USA (piratebay.org) already has Sweden on edge. Sweden has something of a position as a safe harbour but having the guy who just made a huge release of CIA intelligence coming to your country to run wikileaks caused panic in the ranks, panic that was no doubt exacerbated by US diplomatic pressure.

    A local Prosecutor, with a bit of political or diplomatic prompting, jumps the gun on certain accusations (could have made his/her career from it) ..... and we are here.

    The fact is that it would take little more than soft pressure to do what happened in this case, but it now means that every sympathetic political hack can refer to Assange as an "accused rapist" or having been "arrested for rape". Must watch Fox News in the morning.

    The fact that it is soft pressure does not make it less insidious or dangerous (or indeed less of a conspiracy).

    A senior Swedish prosecutor has ordered the reopening of a rape investigation into Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. Public Prosecutions Director Marianne Ny said there was "reason to believe a crime has been committed" and the crime was classified as rape. Last week prosecutors cancelled an arrest warrant for Mr Assange on accusations of rape and molestation, saying he was no longer suspected.

    Sweden dropped its rape investigation against Julian Assange. Swedish prosecutors have been investigating a rape allegation against the WikiLeaks founder for the past seven years. Assange has been holed up at Ecuador’s embassy in London since 2012 to avoid extradition, fearing that Sweden might in turn extradite him to the US to face charges related to leaks of classified military and diplomatic documents (which still might happen, just not via Sweden).

    he is saying "He doesn't forgive and he doesn't forget" - sounds like a threat to me.
