Swedish prosecutors told AOL News last week that Assange was not wanted for rape as has been reported in American media , but for something called "sex by surprise" or "unexpected sex."
Our speculation came true when later on the warrant for the arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange were withdrawn.
Chief prosecutor Eva Finné in a statement explaining her decision said "I do not consider there to be any reason to suspect that he has committed rape."
The statement was issued in August, 2010 to confirm that Assange was no longer a suspect and is thus no longer required to contact the police.
"She (Eva Finné) has adjudged that he is not suspected of rape. There is thus no reason to retain a warrant for his arrest," Karin Rosander at the Prosecution Authority confirmed. read more
Wikileaks Assange ‘Rape’ Accuser Linked To Notorious CIA Operative
James D. Catlin, a lawyer who recently represented Assange, said the sex assault investigation into the WikiLeaks founder is based on claims he didn't use condoms during sex with two Swedish women.
Swedish prosecutors told AOL News last week that Assange was not wanted for rape as has been reported, but for something called "sex by surprise" or "unexpected sex."
One accuser, Anna Ardin, may have "ties to the US-financed anti-Castro and anti-communist groups," according to Israel Shamir and Paul Bennett, writing for CounterPunch.
While in Cuba, Ardin worked with the Las damas de blanco (the Ladies in White), a feminist anti-Castro group.
Professor Michael Seltzer pointed out that the group is led by Carlos Alberto Montaner who is reportedly connected to the CIA.
Shamir and Bennett also describe Ardin as a "leftist" who "published her anti-Castro diatribes (see here and here) in the Swedish-language publication Revista de Asignaturas Cubanas put out by Misceláneas de Cuba."
Shamir and Bennett noted that Las damas de blanco is partially funded by the US government and also counts Luis Posada Carriles as a supporter.
A declassified 1976 document (.pdf) revealed Posada to be a CIA agent. He has been convicted of terrorist attacks that killed hundreds of people. read more
