Julian Assange rape case will be reopened by Sweden, prosecutors say

Persson said Sweden will issue a European arrest warrant and request that Assange is brought to Stockholm for trial after he has served his British prison sentence.

The decision leaves Britain facing a decision on whether to extradite him to the Scandinavian country or the U.S.

Persson said that her team would also seek to interview Assange. “It is my assessment that a new questioning of Assange is required,” she added.
