Rape case against Assange weak: Police

world Updated: Feb 07, 2011 01:45 IST

A police report detailing the rape case against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange reveal a series of apparent contradictions and inconsistencies in the evidence against him. The report comprised 100 pages of interview transcripts, photographs and other material relating to four complaints of rape and sexual assault against Assange made by two Swedish women.

In the report, the two women have claimed that Assange sexually assaulted them during a 10-day period in Stockholm in August last year, reports the Telegraph. According to the report, one of the women, who accused Assange of rape, joked after having unprotected sex with him that he should pay the child support if she got pregnant, and that they should name their child "Afghanistan".

The report also shows apparent evidence that after Assange had allegedly raped the other woman, she had been reluctant for him to leave. Assange continued to stay in her room for several more days. The extradition case against him will resume in London on Monday.
