The Swedish prosecutor's office announced on Friday that an investigation against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange for alleged rape has been closed.
The country's chief prosecutor applied to cancel his arrest on Friday morning, seven years after it was first granted.
In the meantime, in Britain, police have said Assange is still wanted for jumping bail and will face arrest if he leaves Ecuadorean embassy in London.
However, Assange has thus far been cautious about taking advantage of the development. He has been there ever since, fearing that if he is in custody he might ultimately be extradited to the United States.

After the news was announced, WikiLeaks tweeted that the "focus now moves to the UK", saying the country had "refused to confirm or deny whether it has already received a US extradition warrant for Julian Assange". We have won the Assange case.

"The decision to discontinue the preliminary investigation is not because we've been able to make a full assessment of the evidence in this case, but because we didn't see any possibilities to advance the investigation forward".
As per today's announcement, Assange is no longer under any investigation in Sweden.

Last month CIA Director Mike Pompeo called WikiLeaks a "hostile intelligence service", and Sessions, responding to a question about Assange, said the Trump administration was stepping up its efforts against all leaks of sensitive information.
Assange's lawyer, Per E Samuelsson, told Swedish Radio the decision was "a total victory" for his client.
Four hours later, he tweeted: "Detained for 7 years without charge by while my children grew up and my name was slandered. I do not forgive or forget". He has repeatedly reiterated his innocence and said the sex was consensual.
