(August 6, 2012) Representing Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, former Spanish jurist Baltasar Garzon says the U.K. can not legally deny his passage to Ecuador if the South American country grants him asylum.
"Hypothetically, if asylum is granted, Great Britain can't say they won't send him. One can always say no; we are tired of seeing international conventions being breached or not agreed with by different countries. But legally, they can't do it because Ecuador is a sovereign state, a free, democratic state, exactly like the US, nothing more, nothing less."
