    Super-Judge Baltasar Garzon to lead WikiLeaks legal strategy

    The Spanish judge, lawyer, and international jurist, Baltasar Garzón, will lead the legal team representing Julian Assange and WikiLeaks. The jurist met with Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in the United Kingdom recently. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the new legal strategy which will defend both WikiLeaks and Julian Assange from the existing abuse of process; expose the arbitrary, extrajudicial actions by the international financial system which target Julian Assange and WikiLeaks specifically; and show how the secret US processes against Julian Assange and WikiLeaks have compromised and contaminated other legal processes, including the extradition process against Mr Assange. Despite been imprisoned, fiscally blockaded, and placed under house arrest for over 650 days, Mr. Assange has not been charged with an offense in any country.

    Baltasar Garzón revolutionized the international justice system two decades ago by issuing an international arrest warrant for the former Head of State of Chile, Augusto Pinochet. His actions spearheaded the fight against impunity in Latin America and in the rest of the world. The judge has expressed serious concerns regarding the lack of safeguards and transparency with which actions are being taken against Julian Assange, and the harassment he is being subjected to which has irreparable effects on his physical and mental wellbeing. The threats against his person are further aggravated by the complicit behaviour of the Swedish and U.K. governments, who are wrongfully abrogating his rights.

    I came back to this thread to reread the second paragraph of the press release two posts up:

    WikiLawyer: Assange hires 'Pinochet prosecutor' for legal battle



    Published on Jul 25, 2012 by RussiaToday

    WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange hasn't been sitting idle while holed up, seeking asylum, in the Ecuadorean embassy in London. He's been bolstering his legal team in a big way - signing up the celebrated Spanish lawyer and human rights investigator Baltasar Garzon, renowned for indicting the late Chilean leader Augusto Pinochet. RT's Laura Smith explains what this means for Assange's case.

    Ecuador to make decision on Assange after Olympics – foreign minister — RT

    Ecuadorian foreign minister Ricardo Patino says the decision on whether to grant Julian Assange political asylum will be made after the Olympic Games and will not affect the Ecuador’s relations with Britain.

    “We will make a decision that doesn't affect our relationship with Great Britain,” Patino noted. “It might be a decision that's different from the position of the government of Great Britain, but we will be prudent so as not to affect the situation over there right now.”

    Patino said his country would invite British and Swedish officials to come over to Ecuador to discuss the issue.

    The point-Ecuador is not going to extradite Assange to the US, even if it could.

    They will throw Assange under the bus in a heartbeat if it suits their purposes. He has put them in a very embarrassing position.

    Assange Embassy Controversy: Britain Threatens To Raid Ecuador's Embassy Over Amnesty Issue

    QUITO, Ecuador — Ecuador accused Britain on Wednesday of threatening to storm its London embassy to arrest Julian Assange after the U.K. issued a stern warning to the South American nation ahead of its decision on an asylum bid by the WikiLeaks founder.
    Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino said Britain had earlier in the day issued "a written threat that it could assault our embassy" if Assange is not handed over.
    Patino also said he would announce on Thursday morning whether Ecuador would grant the request of the secret-spilling former Australian hacker, who took refuge in Ecuador's embassy on June 19 to avoid extradition to Sweden. Assange faces questioning there for alleged sexual misconduct.
    As news broke of the warning, police were seen reinforcing Scotland Yard's presence outside the embassy in a tony London neighborhood near the Harrods department store.
    In Quito, about 30 people yelling "England, what part don't you understand, we are sovereign!" protested outside the British Embassy, and briefly trampled a British flag.
    In London, a small group of Assange supporters were gathered outside the Ecuadorean embassy late Wednesday, according to live footage broadcast by a citizen journalist on the scene. The embassy was dark, although occasionally the curtains appeared to move.
    British officials have vowed not grant Assange safe passage out of their country if Ecuador grants asylum. They say they will arrest him the moment he steps foot outside the embassy.
    But they had not publicly suggested they might strip the embassy of its diplomatic inviolability.
    After Patino's brief appearance before reporters, Britain's Foreign Office issued a statement citing a 1987 British law it says permits the revocation of diplomatic status of a building if the foreign power occupying it "ceases to use land for the purposes of its mission or exclusively for the purposes of a consular post."
    Under international law, diplomatic posts are considered the territory of the foreign nation.
    Asked by The Associated Press about Patino's characterization of Britain's warning, a Foreign Office official said via email that the letter "was not a threat" and was intended to clarify "all aspects of British law that Ecuador should be aware of." The official would not be identified by name, citing policy.
    Patino said the missive including the veiled threat was delivered to his country's Foreign Ministry in writing and verbally to its ambassador in London on Wednesday. The law cited was Britain's 1987 Diplomatic and Consular Premises Act.
    Patino said Ecuador "rejects in the most energetic terms the explicit threat of the official British communication."
    The Foreign Office statement did not elaborate on Britain's intentions if Assange were to be granted political asylum by Ecuador whose president, Rafael Correa, has expressed sympathy for the Wikileaks founder.
    "We have an obligation to extradite Mr. Assange and it is only right that we give Ecuador (the) full picture," the statement said, before adding: "We are still committed to reaching a mutually acceptable solution."
    Assange, whose publishing via the Internet of thousands of sensitive U.S. diplomatic cables and military dispatches has angered U.S. officials, says the charges against him are trumped up.
    His supporters say they believe the U.S. has secretly indicted him and would extradite him from Sweden.
    Correa has said Assange could face the death penalty in the United States and for that reason he considers the asylum request a question of political persecution.
    Analysts in Ecuador expressed doubts that Britain would raid the embassy.
    Professor Julio Echeverria of Quito's FLACSO university said Britain "has a long establish tradition in Europe of respecting diplomatic missions," which under international law are considered sovereign territory.
    A former Ecuadorean ambassador to London, Mauricio Gandara, told The Associated Press "I refuse to believe in this threat because if asylum is granted the British government will not grant safe passage and Mr. Assange could be in the embassy for a long time."

    Sweden wanted to question him. They could have arranged that easily for the last two years now.

    And Secretary Hague? He hasn't been charged with anything in Sweden yet.

    Many embassies have tunnels underneath them leading to safe houses, etc. If Ecuador's embassy in Britain doesn't have one, then there's some work for Julian to busy himself about :)

    Is it time to launch #OpGrantedAsylum ?

    Some of you, london based brothers and sisters, have seen The Thomas Crown Affair (either the 1968 one and the newest, with Pearce Brosnan).

    Now, imagine thousands of peacefull Anons around the Ecuador Ambassy, all dressed with a black hoot sweater, a jean, and a Fawkes mask.

    Three Questions:
    1- Do you really think police will be able to catch the identity of all guys behind it ?
    2- How many Assange are they supposed to arrest ? 1.
    3- How many controls to be able to get the right one ? potentially 10k.

    Anonymous, to me, time has come to help one of us.

    I know wearing a mask is not allow in GB streets. I know as well the UK sense of duty, creativity, free spirit. Some of you guys, shouted that they wanna take back their future.
    If this message makes any sense from your point of view -its only mine, and trust me, its trying to be humble-, please relay at any IRC that makes sense to your eyes.

    Assange needs us. The censorship fightback needs him. We are all Anons.

    The collective has the duty to help its members.

    It is not your view?
    You will not be able to stay as a person who has the opportunities to be Anons, whithout helping those who make difficult war for you. Take your bet.

    London based Anons, we have no choice if the collective needs to be credible. Assange is ours. And sometimes, we are part of him.

    DO NOT FORGET THAT JUSTICE IS COMING.
