Rape charges reinstated against Wikileaks founder

The case was dropped by a Stockholm prosecutor last week who said there was nothing suggesting Assange had raped a Swedish woman who reported him to police.

The woman’s lawyer appealed the decision and Director of Public Prosecution Marianne Ny on Wednesday decided to reopen the case.

Ny also said that another complaint against Assange should be investigated on suspicion of “sexual coercion and sexual molestation.”
