The woman who has accused WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange of rape has slammed the decision by Swedish prosecutors to drop an investigation as a "scandal" and said she was "shocked", her lawyer said Friday.

"It is a scandal that a suspected rapist can escape justice and thereby avoid the courts... my client is shocked and no decision to (end the case) can make her change that Assange exposed her to rape," the plaintiff's lawyer Elisabeth Fritz said in a statement.

Swedish prosecutors earlier announced they had dropped their rape probe against Assange, 45.
