Julian Assange has rape investigation against him reopened by Swedish prosecutors

Article here. Excerpt:

'The investigation was requested by lawyers for a Swedish woman who alleges Assange raped her in 2010.
Assange, who denies the allegations, previously avoided extradition to Sweden after seeking refuge at the Ecuadorean embassy in London for seven years.

Sweden's deputy director of public prosecutions, Eva-Marie Persson, told reporters through a translator that "there is still a probable cause to suspect that Assange committed a rape".

"The Swedish courts, on several occasions, have examined the detention issue and arrived at the conclusion that Mr Assange was suspected of rape on the 17th of August 2010 on probable cause, which is the higher degree of suspicion," she said.'
