Assange still stands accused of sexual molestation

In comments to an earlier post a disgruntled reader demands an update to the Julian Assange alleged sex impropriety saga:

The prosecutors have dropped the accusation and a complaint against them has been made. Why hasn't this post been updated?

As far as I can tell, this is the latest:

Wikileaks' founder Julian Assange is still suspected of molestation, prosecutors in Stockholm have said. Meanwhile, chief prosecutor Eva Finné has rejected criticism of the original warrant for Assange’s arrest.

"This concerns two separate reports from two women,” said Karin Rosander, spokeswoman for the Prosecutor General’s Office.

Chief Prosecutor Eva Finné said she had not yet decided how to proceed:

“I am going to look thoroughly at this and take a view on the question of how to classify the complaints in the coming days. I have not ordered for Assange to be questioned.”

The two women making the allegations, believed to be Swedish, approached police separately, one in Stockholm and one in an unnamed Swedish city.

Naturally Assange's supporters want to discredit these two women.

Naturally, since the rape charge has already been dropped, it's reasonable to suspect the molestation charge will as well.

Not necessarily, as Assange has never demonstrated his 'bone fides'. We have yet to hear from the kitten and small puppy communities as to his proclivities in their areas of interest.
