Judge Karina Martínez rejected the protection action presented to the special protocol of visits, communications and medical attention by Ecuadorian naturalized activist and hacker Julian Assange. After the reinstatement of the hearing in the northern judicial complex that lasted more than 6 hours, Martínez said it is inappropriate.
He alleged, for example, that guidelines for coexistence should be established.
The resolution is of first instance and can be appealed.
With the demand, the founder of Wikileaks sought to achieve the restoration of his telecommunications, cut from March by Ecuador, and block the application of a special protocol of cohabitation for asylum in the legation, whose failure will result in the “termination of asylum.”
Martinez said the warning to terminate the asylum if Assange does not comply with the rules is not a violation of rights, as the Australian maintains in his lawsuit against Foreign Minister José Valencia, because it is the power of the Ecuadorian State to grant and withdraw that status.
The protocol is valid since October and according to it the Assange communications will be restored.
Previously the defense of Assange alleged that this protocol affects their rights while the Foreign Ministry and the Attorney General argued that only seeks to regulate their behavior because, among other things, the Embassy of Ecuador in London, United Kingdom, was designed for the work of officials, attention to the public, but not for housing.
Carlos Poveda, defender of Assange, maintained that the life of his client is at risk.
The Ecuadorian State recalled that due to Assange’s asylum status, since 2012, he is prevented from formulating statements that affect internal politics or relations with other nations.
Íñigo Salvador, State Attorney, asked to reject the action and argued that the alternative is the Constitutional Court (CC) but Poveda recalled that this institution is in acid.
According to Salvador, Ecuador has cost so far 6 million dollars, an annual million the presence of Assange.
Assange himself intervened in the hearing and according to him, his asylum is subject to international pressure to withdraw it. (I)
