Lost in translation: Swedish prosecutors explain freakish delay in Assange investigation

Swedish prosecutors say a recent interview of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, at the center of an inquiry into a possible sex crime in Sweden in 2010, has now been translated from Spanish into Swedish.

Assange has denied the accusation brought by a Swedish woman.

"The report was then sent for translation, which is now nearly completed".

The Prosecution Authority said Wednesday it will now analyze the interview before deciding what further investigative steps might be taken.

"The prosecutors are still waiting for the translation of some minor parts of the report".

But prosecutors are still investigating the rape allegation, which carries a 10-year statute of limitations.

In November, Sweden's chief prosecutor Ingred Isgren attended the embassy where an Ecuadorean prosecutor questioned Assange, using questions submitted by the Swedish prosecutors.

The procedure has been marked by a series of complications since June 2012 when Assange chose to take refuge inside the embassy to escape a European arrest warrant issued by Sweden.

Assange refused questioning in Sweden over fears that he would be extradited to the U.S. on charges related to his work with WikiLeaks.

"For confidentiality reasons, the prosecutors can not provide information on which investigative measures they intend to conduct, no [r] when they will take place".
