De tekst van de laatste tenlaste legging (3 december) van de Zweedse justitie:
Julian Assange has been detained in his absence charged with rape, sexual molestation and unlawful coercion. Mr Assange had appealed the detention decision issued by Svea Court of Appeal. Today the Supreme Court has taken a decision not to grant Julian Assange leave to appeal. If the Supreme Court is to hear an appeal, leave to appeal must first be granted. Leave to appeal is only granted if the case is assessed as being very important to the application of the law or if other extraordinary reasons apply. The arrest warrant is based on the detention decision that has now been examined by all three legal instances. The additional information requested by the British Police concerns the penalties for the other crimes, in addition to rape, that Julian Assange was arrested for. This information will be supplied immediately. The previous arrest warrant stands.
Dit is de tekst die de Zweedse justitie vandaag openbaar maakt ter verklaring van hun aanhoudingsbevel.
De internationale media (ook Welingelichte Kringen) schrijven al een tijdje dat het om een lichte overtreding zou gaan, twee dames die ontevreden zijn over Assange. Maar dit klinkt toch echt naar rape.
