I don't think so.

The first part of the paragraph talks about the guilt of the
offender, the second part about dismissing the case with the
approval of the accused.

The accused doesn't have to be the offender and as being
accused for itself doesn't imply any guilt I don't see why
dismissing the case according of § 153 StPO would imply any
guilt either.
