New lawyer in Assange case

Published torsdag 28 mars 2013 kl 14.59

One of the two women accusing Julian Assange of sex crimes has asked for a new lawyer. Until now both women have been represented by Claes Borgström, but now tabloid Expressen reports that one of the women has asked the court for a new representative.

Borgström says to the paper that he has nothing against a change, and that "in sex crime cases it is especially important that the injured party has confidence in the lawyer that represents her."

Julian Assange is wanted in Sweden, suspected by police of molestation and rape, but has been granted asylum in London's Ecuadorian Embassy due to his fears that he will be sent on to the USA for his role in the Wikileaks whistleblowing website.
