Garzon: “If they enter the Embassy would break international law”

A good number of people have their eyes on London and more specifically in Ecuador’s diplomatic mission in the United Kingdom, where they found Julian Assange , the founder of , since I came to ask for political asylum that has been granted . The granting of political asylum could create a major diplomatic conflict between and the United Kingdom since the latter has advanced Assange not let go free the country and is rumored plans to assault Embassy of Ecuador (which is legally recognized as Ecuadorian soil) . In this situation, much of the attention has been focused on Baltasar Garzon that since late July, is in charge of the defense of and WikiLeaks and has made brief statements to Spain’s Cadena Ser .

The situation of “police roadblock” that has been submitted to the Embassy of Ecuador draws much attention, especially when it is rumored that there are plans to assault and that Britain will not allow Assange “escape” of the country.

On the threat from United Kingdom to enter the Embassy “to assault” under a national law allows, Garzon said that Britain should be dispensed to the Embassy of Ecuador, for consistency, the same way as they ask for their own diplomatic missions:

I dare not think I could do, it would violate international law and its own record of support that they requested and were granted in the Security Council of United Nations on November 29, 2011, when its embassy in Iran was invaded, there established the absolute inviolability of embassies
