"A Swedish prosecutor said on Friday that she had asked permission to question Julian Assange at the Ecuadorean embassy in the British capital, where he has taken refuge since losing a legal battle against extradition to Sweden in 2012. Prosecutors had previously refused to travel to London, but lead prosecutor Marianne Ny said time was running out to press certain charges against Assange, as their statue of limitations will be reached in August. ... One of Assange's defense lawyers, Per Samuelson, welcomed Friday's offer, saying his client would probably accept it. 'It's something that we have been asking for four years,' Per Samuelsson, one of Assange's lawyers, told the Swedish daily Aftonbladet. 'This is the way to go so that he is (proven) innocent.'"
