Julian Assange remains trapped in the Ecuadorian embassy but the Swedes still haven't prosecuted him 6 years on - Julian Assange releases full testimony to Swedish prosecutors six years after rape allegation.
In a 19-page statement he gave in a landmark interview to Swedish investigators, the WikiLeaks editor-in-chief also said he had been subjected to "cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment". The 45-year-old computer programmer has been holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for four years to avoid arrest. "I want people to know the truth about how abusive this process has been," said the Australian journalist.
Last month, for the first time, Ms Ny's deputy and a police officer interviewed Mr Assange at the embassy, where he is an asylum-seeker. Swedish prosecutors are awaiting transcripts from the Ecuadorian embassy, but he beat them to it by publishing his statement on Wednesday. He has never formally been charged.
