On November 15, Swedish prosecutors questioned Assange at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London over the 2010 case whereby Assange was accused of rape and molestation.

"I am now releasing my statement to the public. The reason is simple. I want people to know the truth about how abusive this process has been. Furthermore, in the past the prosecution has fed partial information to tabloids that politically oppose me," Assange said in a letter, accompanying the text of his testimony.

Assange added that the publication of the document should prove his innocence to everyone.

The WikiLeaks founder has been residing at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since 2012 for fear of being extradited to Sweden. Assange denies the rape allegations, claiming they are a ruse organized by Washington to hand him over to the United States where he is wanted for leaking thousands of top-secret military documents. In February, the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention ruled that Assange's de-facto incarceration was arbitrary.
