"This is a total victory for Julian Assange. He is free to leave the embassy when he wishes. We have achieved the goal we set and Assange is happy and very glad," Samuelsson said, adding, however, that his client was quite critical over the fact that the juridical standoff with the Swedish authorities had lasted almost seven years.

Axar.az reports citing TASS, Chief Prosecutor Marianne Ny said in an official statement on Friday that the investigation would be terminated as the Swedish Prosecutor’s Office had used up all the possibilities over the past period to continue it.

However, the statute of limitation on the Assange case expires only in 2020. Therefore, the investigation against the WikiLeaks founder may be resumed under certain circumstances.

The Swedish Prosecutor’s Office may resume the investigation against Assange, if he returns to the country before August 2020, Chief Prosecutor Marianne Ny said.

"There are no causes now to continue the preliminary investigation because we have no possibility to ensure his [Assange’s] presence [in Sweden]. However, if he returns to Sweden before August 2020 [before the expiry of the statute of limitation on the case], the investigation may be resumed," she said.
