More: Julian Assange: Sweden drops rape investigation - BBC News (19. May 2017)Sweden's director of public prosecutions has decided to drop the rape investigation into Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.
Marianne Ny said his arrest warrant was being revoked as it was impossible to serve him notice of his alleged crimes.
Mr Assange, 45, has lived in the Ecuadorean embassy in London since 2012, fearing extradition to Sweden would lead to extradition to the US.
However, UK police is still planning to arrest him for "failing to surrender to a court", which is a charge punishable by up to 1 year in prison.
