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.

"We congratulate President-elect Macron and the people of France on their successful presidential election", said Spicer. The result wasn't close - Macron had 64 per cent support with about 90 per cent of votes counted.
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.
Friday was the deadline for prosecutors to renew or lift the warrant for Assange's arrest.
"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.

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.
