Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The available evidence hasn't been withdrawn, the charge of rape has been withdrawn. The Swedish prosecutor is investigating the 'sexual harassment/unwanted sexual contact' allegations, and will tell us more this week.

There is nothing 'flimsy' about two witnesses alleging that crime. Eyewitness testimony is generally accorded a great deal of weight in any legal system I've ever heard of. Being taken seriously has long been a very sensitive issue for women alleging sexual assault and misconduct, and I'm hoping you'll keep that in mind in future comments.
