The prosecutors spent much of the time explaining why they have still not questioned Julian Assange over the suspicions of sex crimes, some of which have already reached their period of limitation and are no longer being pursued. Part of the explanation was that they were trying to avoid lowering the quality of the investigation, for example by interviewing Assange by telephone.
The ideal situation for the prosecutors has been to question a suspect in Sweden, in person, and they say they have been trying not to give Assange different treatment.
Much of this is not new, and similar explanations are available in English on the prosecutors' website.
Marianne Ny began the press conference by saying she had little news to impart, and that this was simply an opportunity to update the public on the case. She says that the airing of Uppdrag Granskning's programme tonight makes today a suitable day for a press conference.
