Condom used as evidence to prove rape charges against Assange ‘does not contain his DNA’

London, Sept. 16 (ANI): Forensic staff has not found any conclusive evidence of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s DNA on a torn condom given to the Swedish police by one of the victims, who has claimed that she was raped by him, his lawyers have said.

The same forensic team found DNA thought to be of Assange on another condom, which was submitted by the second alleged victim.

The revelation has been made in a 100-page police report that was written after witnesses were questioned and forensic evidence examined.

According to the Daily Mail, Assange, who has denied allegations of rape and sexual molestation, has been fighting extradition to Sweden for the past two years.

He claims it is a trick to send him to the United States where he could face trial for espionage.

In the report, the first alleged victim claims she was sexually molested by Assange at her flat in Stockholm on several occasions.

She also claimed that Assange deliberately ripped a condom before wearing it so that he could have unprotected sex with her against her will.

According to the report, his lawyers said that the fact no DNA could be found conclusively on the apparently used condom suggests that a fake one could have been submitted for examination.

During police investigation, the second victim said that she did not mind having unprotected sex with Assange.

The Swedish prosecutor’s office have refused to comment on the report, but said the case was continuing. (ANI)
