“It is quite obvious that in light of the new information, they [lawyers] can look into options of taking a legal action against Swedish state,” Hrafnsson said.
At the same time, the recently released correspondence between CPS and its Swedish colleagues are explicit proof that the case against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is politicized, the spokesman said.
“If there was any doubt in anybody’s mind about the political nature of this human rights violation against Julian Asssange, that doubt should vanish with the release of this information,” Hrafnsson said.
WikiLeaks defense lawyers repeatedly stated that the process against Assange had been protracted and Swedish prosecution could have questioned him years ago.
The WikiLeaks founder argues that Sweden’s rape charges are a ploy to extradite him to the United States, where he is wanted for publishing thousands of leaked top-secret military documents and diplomatic cables.
