Swedish Prosecutors Say No Deal Yet on Assange Interrogation

Tuesday, 26 January 2016 06:00 PM

STOCKHOLM (AP) — Swedish prosecutors have cast doubt on Ecuador's assertion that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will be questioned imminently at its embassy in London.

Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa said Wednesday that questions submitted by Swedish prosecutors will be asked of Assange by Ecuadorean officials "in the coming days." The questions relate to accusations of sexual assault made by two women.

But Karin Rosander, a spokeswoman for the Swedish Prosecution Authority, told The Associated Press on Thursday that no date had been set for the questioning. She said the top prosecutor handling the case, Marianne Ny, is still considering the request to let Ecuadorian officials do the interrogation.

Assange took refuge in the Ecuadorean Embassy in the British capital in June 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden and has been confined there since.
