No plans to question Assange in London

The British authorities say they have nothing against a Swedish prosecutor coming to London to question Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, who is being sought on sexual assault allegations here and has taken refuge inside an embassy in London. But  the prosecutor says she has no plans to do so.

The question was raised in the British parliament Tuesday and Foreign and Commonwealth Office Minister Hugo Swire said prosecutor Margareta Ny was welcome in London if that would ease the two year stand-off at the Ecuadorian embassy.

But on the Swedish Prosecution Authority’s website Ny writes that she has no new plans on the issue.
