Julian Assange Says Swedish Prosecutor is 'reckless' for Scrapping Interview

A Swedish prosecutor has cancelled an appointment to interview Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, according to the Wikileaks founder, who has been living in the building for nearly three years to avoid extradition. Assange said Marianne Ny had led his lawyers to believe that an appointment to take a statement from him would take place on Wednesday and described the cancellation as “reckless”. Swedish prosecutors have been trying since 2010 to question Assange about allegations of rape and sexual molestation, although he has not yet been charged. He entered the embassy three years ago on Friday and has remained there to avoid a perceived threat of being sent on from Sweden to the US for publishing military secrets.
