The political secretary of the Swedish Christian Socialdemocrats Anna Ardin, invited the founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange a week ago to a seminar. Last weekend Assange was reported for sexual molestation. The person behind the report is Anna Ardin.
"She is on sick leave" the president of the Christian Socialdemocrats, Peter Weiderud tells Newzglobe.
Peter Weiderud, president of the Christian Socialdemocrats, does not have many comments..
He explained that Assange was invited to discuss media's role in conflicts - a seminar that took place in Stockholm, last Saturday.
Anna Ardin was the person behind the invitation, who later contacted the police and reported the founder of WikiLeaks for sexual molestation.
"This is a matter for the police and it occured during her free time." I am responsable for her well being, Peter Weiderud emphasises and adds that Anna Ardin - who is also press secretaty for the Christian Socialdemocrats, is on sick leave after the incident.
The suspicions about rape has been dropped. The alleged crime, that is now dropped, should have occured around Enkoping.
The allegations that concern sexual molestation supposedly occured in Stockholm.
Two women, one of them Anna Ardin, who reported WikiLeaks founder to the police, which resulted in an arrest order issued by emergency prosecutor Maria Haljebo Kjellstrand.
Maria Haljebo Kjellstrand's actions is now reported to the Ombudsmen of Justice, by an organisation that calls themselves the Rattsorganisationen, RO.
"To arrest someone is a serious decision where the prosecutor must have enough evidence to order an arrest" sais Johann Binninge, president of RO, to Svenska Dagbladet.
"The testimony of one person is not evidence."
The chief prosecutor, Eva Finne, tells TT that she will make a decision this week how to continue with this case.
"I will thoroughly look into the case and how to label it within the nearest few days. I have not ordered an interrogation with Assange."
Newzglobe has searched Anna Ardin and chief prosecutor Eva Finne for a comment.
