Swedish prosecutors announced the decision to drop the sex offences investigation against Julian Assange this morning.

Director of Public Prosecutions Marianne Ny said she had decided to “discontinue” the investigation into an alleged sex offence, although it is unlikely to lead to Mr Assange immediately leaving the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.

He has claimed asylum in Ecuador’s London embassy for almost five years.

Speaking on the embassy balcony, Mr Assange branded the news a victory before attacking the EU saying “detention and extradition without charge has become a feature of the EU.”

He said: “Today is an important victory for me and for the UN Human Rights system. But it by no means erases seven years of detention without charge in prison, under house arrest and almost five years here in this embassy without sunlight.

“Seven years without charge while my children grew up without me. That is not something that I can forgive. It is not something that I can forget.

“The inevitable inquiry into what has occurred in this moment of terrible injustice is something that I hope will be more than just about me.

“Detention and extradition without charge has become a feature of the EU that has been exploited for political reasons.”

He added: “It’s a measure that was introduced as part of the EU system to turn the European Union into a federation.

“In 2014 in in response to my situation and other abuses the UK government changed the law to prevent further extradition without charge from the UK, but it is still a problem in the rest of the EU.”

Mr Assange believes he faces extradition to the United States for questioning over the activities of WikiLeaks if he leaves the embassy.

Scotland Yard says it is obliged to execute a warrant issued by Westminster Magistrates’ Court for the arrest of Mr Assange following his failure to surrender to the court in June 2012, should he leave the embassy.
