Quito: Julian Assange’s lawyer accused Britain on Thursday of breaking international law by denying the WikiLeaks founder safe passage out of the country if he leaves Ecuador’s embassy in London.
“Britain is… violating all the norms of international law, human rights and humanitarian law,” said Baltasar Garzon, a Spanish ex-judge who leads Assange’s defense team.
He’s wanted for breaching his bail terms. There is no right of free passage in such circumstances.
From memory Garzon was the magistrate who wanted Pinochet so he’s been inventive in legal theory for some time.
