A lawyer for Julian Assange called Sunday for the WikiLeaks founder to be given safe passage to Ecuador from Britain, where he is holed up in the South American country's embassy.
"Mr. Assange is going to continue fighting for his rights," human rights lawyer Baltasar Garzon declared Sunday, saying that Assange had instructed his legal team to take action.
Garzon, an attorney from Spain who is best known from his years as a crusading judge, did not say what that legal action would be.
Assange himself is expected to break months of silence Sunday from the Ecuadorian Embassy in Britain, where he fled to avoid extradition to Sweden to face questioning about alleged sex crimes.
