Swedish Court grants Julian Assange appeal over rape allegation


By NewsGram Staff Writer

The Supreme Court of Sweden on Tuesday granted WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, the right to appeal against an arrest warrant for an alleged rape case.

Without designating any date, the court wrote, “The Supreme Court grants leave to appeal in the matter regarding the arrest.”

An arrest warrant was issued for Assange by Sweden in 2010 after two women threw up allegations on WikiLeaks founder. One alleged Assange for rape and another one charged him with sexual assault.

Since June 2012, Assange has been living inside Ecuador’s embassy in London to avoid banishment.

In November 2014, Assange’s previous appeal was rejected by Sweden’s appeal court. However, the Supreme Court has offered him a great relief by agreeing to listen to his appeal.

The 43-year-old Australian has always denied the allegation by those women and said that the sexual confrontations were consensual. He also claims that those women are part of a ploy to transfer him to the US due to Wikileaks’ publication of thousands of classified US documents.

However, Assange has not been booked with any crime in the United States.
