The Swedish authorities have closed a seven-year investigation probe against Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange over allegations of rape. Elisabeth Fritz, the women who filled the original complaint against Assange is disappointed with the outcome.

However Washington still wants Assange to be extradited to the United States over his leak of classified US data on Wikileaks. The UK police said they would still arrest Assange if he came out of the Ecuadorian embassy in London, because he had broken his conditions for bail by not surrendering himself to the police.

Assange is now planning to seek asylum in France. How he plans to get there without being arrested is still a mystery. Fearing extradition from Sweden to the USA, Assange sought refuge at the Ecuadorian embassy in the UK in June 2012 after Sweden issued a warrant for his arrest over allegations of rape and sexual assault filed by the Jewish women in Sweden in 2010.

Ecuador granted the Australian journalist and publisher, Julian Assange political asylum in 2012, but a constant police presence and the arrest order have prevented him exiting the embassy in London ever since.
